Tattoos are not addictive. I only have two.
My new one was designed by my friend Gideon Courtney and inked by Andrew Batten at Lucky Devil.
Tattoos are permanent.
People tell me "when you get older, your tattoo will look all blurry and saggy". Well, maybe if I got it when I was 20, but I'm older now for crying out loud! It won't have time to get blurry. And it won't get saggy if I stay in shape.
After I get age marks, and lose my hair, and get short and get ugly, I'm pretty sure a tattoo will be the least of my worries.
"But you may not care about it in a few years". Well, this tattoo is the Tree Of Life and inside are the initials of my wife (JB), daughter (CJM) and son (BJB). I'll still care about all three for a long time.
Besides, it makes me look tough at the gym. Hahaha!
Do you think I should have gotten a larger tattoo to fill the large space? (Joking!)
Next, I'm thinking of getting Matthew 7:21. You know the verse? "Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord' will enter the kingdom of heaven but only he who does the will of my Father who is in Heaven." I want the whole verse. I love that verse. It's a warning verse. I'm getting it on my left ribcage. It'll hurt like hell.
No, tattoos are not addictive. Hahaha!
