HA! you should talk, Luci
The point Luci’s making is that a tiny tattoo on the ankle does not mean a commitment to something has been honored.
Luci has her entire back covered with a tattoo, which implies she’s marked her commitment quite noticeably, thus investing a lot of her physical appearance and personality into her achievement.
The irony, of course, is Shelly’s new tattoo–and the commitment that comes with it…
And at this point, Luci hasn’t seen it yet….
Frak do I dislike this whole debate on the meaningfulness of tattoos. As if body art needs to have some deep “commitment” linked to it or it somehow isn’t good enough. How about getting a tattoo because you think it would look cool, or because you find it pretty? That’s how many works of art started out.
Liking an image enough to get it permanently etched in you skin IS commitment.
That’s all it’s usually about, Neg. The talk about commitment is just needle-lovers trying to make it sound a lot deeper than it is. None of those tatts are gonna look so good when they hit 60-something, though…and whatever ’cause’ they were for will probably have died off by then.
usually when you ask for permission to speak you wait for a response.
