As I recover from last night’s tattoo session, another chip in the very long process of finishing this back piece we’ve been working on, I thought I’d ask you all about the topic. It seems that tattoos have become fairly ubiquitous; no longer the sole property of the outre.
In my case, at age 18, I went into a tattoo shop on a whim, not really knowing what I was going to get, and wound up with a little eye of Horus on my left shoulder. Given my lifelong fascination with Egyptian archaeology and culture, it just made sense. And now, almost twelve years later, I’m still covering my body in Egyptian art.
Do you have any tattoos? What factors have influenced this choice? What do you have/would you get and why?
