i just had a brilliant idea for a tattoo.

hey, kids, remember this? (only if you're my age or older, and an Arrowbearian):


i thank You God for most this amazing
day:for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky;and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes

(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun's birthday;this is the birth
day of life and of love and wings:and of the gay
great happening illimitably earth)

how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any--lifted from the no
of allnothing--human merely being
doubt unimaginable You?

(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)



here is my idea. you ready?

an eye. with another eye encorporated inside it (iris, pupil, whatever. i'm not the artist, just the conceptualist). both open.

white ink.

placement ideas: back of neck (ooh creepy!), shoulder / upper arm (white ink tattoos look SUPER COOL there), ankle, anywhere on my back.

after a while they fade, and it looks more like scarification. very subtle, very pretty.

BAM i'm awesome.
That was one of the more excellent ones. And then we did that poem in AP Lit, and it always reminded me of Arrowbear.

Symbolic awakening x2?
i just googled white ink tattoos and BAM
picture of someone getting an eyeball tattoo
THANKS TASHA NOW I'M SCARRED FOR LIFE
my eyes are twitching
I googled too, but I didn't see any scary eyeballs. Alisa doesn't know what she's doing.
Anyway, there were some cool looking ones but some ones that didn't seem that pretty, but that's just me. I think the faded out thing could potentially be really good.

ee cummings is cool.
