Most people who get tattoos choose pictures or symbols, but now and then someone decides to permanently imprint words on his skin, words that meant so much to him that he needed them to be at hand for always. I’ve thought many times of getting ink, although I usually talk myself out of it long before I get anywhere near a facility to have it done. And when I am in the tattooing mood, it’s usually one of two symbols, not words. But if I was of a mind to put someone else’s words on my flesh, I might choose ” Cry “Havoc!” and let slip the dogs of war” (Julius Caesar) or possibly ” We few, we happy few, we band of brothers; For he to-day that sheds his blood with me Shall be my brother” (Henry V.) Or maybe “We must take a hard road, a road unforeseen. Therein lies our hope.” (The Fellowship of the Ring).
Tell me…what word or phrase or paragraph would you consider tattooing on yourself?
