When the Ink Starts to Itch…

13 neck

 

On August 25, 1996, I got my second tattoo, inspired by the amazing Johnny Cash:

My ink isn’t itching, not now. But to celebrate the year-of-my-favorite-number, I’m going to get this nearly-vintage tattoo prettied up. I’ve thought about it for years and haven’t yet hit on the right concept. Lace has been on my mind, as ferns have. Something dainty to counter the thick lines that I liked way back.
