Ink (OctPoWriMo2014)-Day 24

Wipe it clean
Put the needle to my skin
Ink it exactly how I want it
It started with one
Then two and three
Before I knew it I hit number four
Now I'm contemplating what's next
What do I want for number five
Let's make this fun
Make it something memorable
New Ink for a different place
Travel the world and make it permanent
 Every memory sticks to my skin forever
They all tell a story
They all have a meaning
Favorite band, biggest dreams, aspirations
It keeps me grounded
Keeps my head straight
Ink is my guilty pleasure 


  1. Ahhhh lovely. It took me 30 years to get my first and second in the same day :D Now I'm planning my next.

    1. Thanks. Yeah, they're very addicting. I got all of mine in not so visible places and I always make sure they mean something so I always get them about a year apart or more.

  2. Really neat poem! You've described to me, a non-tattoo kind of guy, some of the thought process behind getting a tattoo.

    1. Thank you! If you ever get one just make sure it has meaning so that way you'll never regret it!
