New Kerouac tattoo

Finally got that new Kerouac tat I mentioned previously (at least I think I mentioned it).

It works on a few different levels.

  • It's simple and in typewriter font.
  • It has multiple and important meanings for me (Kerouac, a reminder to combat the opposite energy).
  • Even its location is significant (other than being concealable by my watch band).
  • Once I no longer have to appear respectable (e.g., retirement), it can be incorporated into a sleeve (can't wait for Crystal to read that)

I expected it to hurt more than my others, but it hurt less.

I had it done at One of a Kind Tattoos in Farmington by a UMF psychology (hold the jokes) grad, Jeremiah.

Cool! I'm getting "the road is life" later this year, probably on my inside left upper arm. He'll join Ginsberg, Burroughs, and Hunter Thompson - so it's good Beat company.
