Tommy is slightly addicted. Before his first tattoo, 8 hours, even healed he was dreaming up the next one. It’s not really a cheap habit but cheaper than other addictions, I suppose.
He wanted this one to be a Maori design and to have my name on it somewhere where it was visible to him. As usual, Moon did a great job with the design and the tattoo itself.
So here we go again… He said this one hurt worse than the first one. He even made some faces. Notice that he saved the best for last. My name… He actually put my name on the area of his arm that is one of the most painful spots to tattoo. I’m not sure I like the significance behind that.
Btw, it’s only been a couple of days and he’s already dreaming up the next one. Although I’m not calling for an intervention just yet, I’m reminding him that he was created to be a white man. If he starts talking about face tattoos or if he takes money from the grocery budget I will draw the line.
