I Still Don’t Have Any Tattoos

Somebody come get this guy? Photo by Taras Chernus on Unsplash

I still don’t have any tattoos. I don’t really know if I’m supposed to get one.

The idea of permanence scares me. How do I know what I know now will remain forever? I feel like the upside of a good tattoo does not justify the downside of a bad tattoo. Maybe I have a narrow sense of taste and see options as purely right or wrong. In reality, perhaps there is good and better.
