Slightly Geeky


Wednesday December 26, 2012

We're doing  a quick special today focusing on why people get their tattoos. Ariane Coffin(writer of GeekMom on wired) recently got her first tattoo at the age of 30. She documented the process and her logic as she approached all the consequences and rewards of getting tattooed.  Ariane is a good example of a client with little to no experience with tattoos. She details her mind and approach to finding a stuido, which led her to the artist right for her- MD Tattoo Studio's Marc Durrant.

 

Here's a teaser of her article, click the jump at the end to see the whole article!
 

"Problem: It would look bad when I’m old.

Solution: Surely a few things about my body will look bad when I’m old. Will a tattoo really be the worst of my worries?

Problem: I could potentially regret it later.

Solution: Hurting a friend’s feeling, saying something mean, not speaking up when you really ought to:  Those are things worth regret. A hideous haircut or an inconspicuous tattoo are not worthy of such a strong emotion. Anyone should be so lucky as to grow old with a tattoo being their worst mistake in life.

With all my potential problems properly addressed in my head, I had to tell my husband about it. He’s my voice of reason, because I so obviously lack one. He said, “Yes, I fully endorse this idea. I think it is a great idea and you should go for it.” In fact, what he really said was something else entirely, but I’m pretty sure he didn’t say the word “No” anywhere in there and that’s really the only keyword I was listening for.

Next up, I had to make some decisions. Who? What? Where?"
