Time to put my money where my mouth is! Er…rather, where my flesh is. I’ve decided – after much deliberation and discussion – that I would like to have a tattoo. I’ve toyed with the idea for about three years, and finally have found a design that I really want. I was considering an outline of the state of Montana, or perhaps the words “Great Falls,” but…I found something that represents both Montana and Great Falls, has a striking design, and also marks the year. So sometime in the next several days, I’m going to visit Nick at Grafx Tattoos – a tattoo artist that I trust via his work on friends of mine – to see what he thinks. OK, enough talk – here is the design that I’ve chosen:
So…what do you think? Someone at work thought there might by copyright issues, but the Montana quarter isn’t “owned” by a private company or person, so I think it will be OK (right?).
Now the next challenge: where to place this tattoo?
UPDATE: Hmm…didn’t realize that this would generate so much feedback! I’m still pretty sure that I want to get a tattoo — for several reasons that I may share later — but I’m no longer convinced that the Montana quarter is the best design choice…so I’m still open to suggestions. Ideas…?
UPDATE: Still weighing the pros and cons. Leaning towards “con” at this point.
