I get more ink in a week. I'll think I'll get dragon wings as a tramp stamp.

Back when I was 17, my friend Josh had this great idea, "let's go get tattoos!", he then proceeded to tell me about a guy who could do it really cheap. Plus he wasn't real concerned with checking IDs. So off we went to get our first ink.
Greg was a sketchy ex-con with a body full of poorly done tattoos, but "MICHELLE" in giant Gothic letters across his neck really stood out amongst the rest. His "parlor" err trailer was even sketchier. Me being young and dumb and having a new subscription to Rock and Ice thought the little heal hook dude would be AWESOME on my shoulder. Anyway he sawed away on both of us and away we went happy as clams with our own sketchy half-assed tatoos.


Josh wanted to go back a few weeks later to get, Animal (from the muppets) playing drums. I said I'd pass on getting one, but would gladly tag along just to hear Greg's amusing hard time anecdotes. Greg answers the door, Josh looks at him and says, "Looks like you an Michelle broke up." I laughed, Greg didn't. Greg had a new black bar across his neck. Ha!



My little sister decided her calling was as a tattoo artist. I watched and encouraged her work for years, and then finally I agreed to a big piece from her. She drew up the concept we worked on as a testament to my lifelong relationship with geology. Here is the result:



A few months later I stumbled upon the link that Ed referenced above and submitted my photos and a brief story. I never heard anything back from Carl Zimmer, other than a canned "thanks for your submission" (not that I was looking for anything else.) Then last year I was perusing a book store and found Zimmer's book, "Science Ink" (http://www.amazon.com/Science-Ink-Tattoos-Obsessed/dp/1402783604).

Flipping through the pages I found this:


It hasn't made my sister famous, as we joke about, but it is a fun story for me and my boo.

that i am a mccoy ( mackay ) and it is both good, bad, and something in between. and perhaps ironic having strong hand branded on my arm with all the titanium in it.
