a tattoo can say a thousand words


on an impulse
I get myself tattooed
a precise creation of some symbols
the rhythm of the tattoo artist
can only be felt by me
whisperings in the region within my head
resonate with the needle
I desire invisible ink
at the back of my neck
he does his work
with infinite care
while I create a distance in my mind

out of the two fists
one emits designs,
before I can even say
"what hit me?"

Tatoos scare me so much! Yet, you found a way to make it seem like it would be almost enjoyable :-)

So you put yourself in a trance and floated off into the distance. It sounds as though he finished quickly and it was quite a buzz for you!

"While I create a distance in my mind" ... The only way I could endure that needle!

I love the idea of invisible ink, since each tattoo is such a personal choice and sometimes represent things we wish not discuss! Great imagery and flow!

Robyn Greenhouse said...

I think I'd want invisible ink too. I'd probably change my once the tattoo was done!

I would need an invisible needle
as I am afraid of needles but,
I have seen some great creations.

As beautiful as some tattoos are, I don't think I could ever bring myself to do it. The idea of an invisible tattoo is quite interesting.
