Last week we took a break from Sunday Confessions, and even though I had something written up, I got a bit lazy. This week, we reconvened, but... well... I had a tattoo appointment. I was gone over 12 hours yesterday (6 being tattooed) and today I just dont have the energy to write when every 5 minutes I readjust myself and say
Because of those circumstances I am just going to share photos of my new tattoo. It's a Frankenstein monster and originally created by Fab Ciraolo. His work is awesome if you want to look him up. I always identified with the story particularly with the monster being a social outcast and wanting to be accepted for his differences.
"As I fixed my eyes on the child, I saw something glittering on his breast. I took it; it was a portrait of a most lovely woman. In spite of my malignity, it softened and attracted me. For a few moments I gazed with delight on her dark eyes, fringed by deep lashes, and her lovely lips; but presently my rage returned; I remembered that I was forever deprived of the delights that such beautiful creatures could bestow and that she whose resemblance I contemplated would, in regarding me, have changed that air of divine benignity to one expressive of disgust and affright."
Eventually his existence changes him into something more of a true monster--the anger and rage and need for revenge. Luckily I never ended up there, but I do relate or did when I was younger and have been drawn to the character ever since.

I'm glad you didn't get a chance to write your confession, I wouldn't have been able to see your body art.ReplyDelete
Although tattoos are against my religion and pain is something I do everything to avoid, I am a big fan of the art of the tattoo. I love that you put so much thought into the meaning of this new piece. It's perfect.
Those are bad ass awesome tattoos!!! And just your description from your pain to the pleasure of owning magnificent pieces of artwork was eloquent. 😊ReplyDelete
