I regret to inform everyone that I still do not have any tattoos. I believe that I mentioned in an earlier post that I wanted 5 tattoos. Well... That has certainly changed. I mean, it isn't a major change. But it is significant. However, I won't be getting into that right now. Today, I would like to talk about the importance of "the dumb tattoo."
It is widely known, among people who have/want multiple tattoos, that one of the tattoos that graces your body must be "dumb." These tattoos manifest themselves in the forms of: "Oh, shit. Why did I just permanently ink this to my body?" "This serves no purpose, but I feel the need to have it here." or "Haha, all of my friends are totally going to laugh when they see this."
Out of the 5 or so tattoos that I want, 1 of them is a dumb one. On the right side of my pelvic/hip area I want a really trippy-looking yin-yang symbol. I don't have any beliefs regarding the symbol. I don't use it for my own inner peace or serenity. But, when I was younger, I was completely obsessed with it. I would draw it every where. I would print out pictures and use them as bookmarks. It was a pretty weird habit to have. Now, I decided that there would be no better way to do my younger self justice than to have the symbol permanently attached to my body.
Who wouldn't want to have totally awesome tattoos like these?
