Tattoos


I've been wanting to get a tattoo for a while, but could never decide on a design I liked enough to keep with me forever. However, I think I've thought of one.

On my right bicep, - Makoto. This is one of the seven virtues of the bushi. Most of the virtues I cannot claim in good conscience yet. This one, though, runs deep in me.

On my left bicep, 浪人 - Ronin. Hopefully the significance of this one is clear to anyone who knows me. (Or maybe I should put this on my back, up high.)

I've been told, if you want a tattoo, wait a year before you get it done, to make sure you like the design. So, if I still like these come next November, I'll get 'em done.

(Yeah, yeah, I know, kanji tattoos are sooooo ten years ago. GET OFF MY LAWN!!)

Edit: Oh man, the irony! ;D
