Ink Me

IMG_3599

I’m into oldschool ……today it’s a whales tail ……the slap ……before the splash…….I hear the buzz ……five small needles scream in and out from the gun ……dipped in black ink …….touchdown into my skin……I love that first touch of the needles prick ……the burn as they carve out the lines …….it like life …….alive …….the design forms in a series of fine cuts into my flesh……something for life ……life of something ……time will stretch them ……..I’m gonna hold them close like my lover …..she soothes my mortality …….hear the electric drama beating out on my skin ……thousands of tiny pin pricks ……. love the burn ……marked out on flesh crossed harpoons below…..above a laurel crown capped in stars …..rests on my left forearm …..forever mine ……scrimshaw whale dives into my …..into my ocean ……my being….lighthouse to my life …..my tale…..my flesh my longing …….until death do us part…….dress me in tattoo…….until you fall from my bones like time
