I have found it!

You can't tell from these photos, but I'm a fan of tattoos. 

I'm not usually fan of tramp-stamps.

However, in re-reading a favorite poem of mine, I think I've found one I'd like. Nothing else would be appropriate in that glorious spot right above my ass. It's part of a Margaret Atwood poem.

Messy love is better than none,
I guess. I'm no authority
on sane living.

Isn't it just beautiful? Once I saw a man in central park with an infinity symbol placed there. Was that supposed to be a challenge? Who knows. This is much better.

Oh, the full poem can be found here.


  1. There's something about the word "messy" tattooed above one's ass... not sure if that's the double entendre you'd like associated with you? :)

  2. Hello! Have you met me!? Ok, well most of you haven't...

    But of course the double entendre is intended.

  3. Here's a thought whatever it is, is it something you can live with like 20 years down the line faded and stretched out? It's the rule of thought with any tattoo. I mean think about it here, you are in your 60's or so and have messy tattoo'ed above your ass. Take it another 20 or so years, nursing home. At the very least you will keep the bed nurses chuckling. Just saying...(Hugs)Indigo

  4. Another thought, always sleep on it first. Another day might give one pause. Indy

  5. Well. This post was 80% facetious. There's a solid 20% of me that says, if I were to ever put anything above my ass, it's this/

    Oh, and I already have EXPANSIVE tattooing so a little more stretch isn't going to be a big deal.

    One other thing. When I'm 80, it will be one of my goals to keep the bed-nurses chuckling. It's the least my crotchety-ass (pun?) will be able to do. I hope to be the one that has the nurses saying to each-other "Come look in room 304; you've got to see this!"

    I'll be gladly rolling over to show them.

  6. Ok, humor is definitely the way to go out of life. Yes, I'm chuckling about the thought of the bed nurses reaction.

    Now if profound was the way you wished to go, hmm.. Anais Nin is always a spiritual approach.

    My favorite of hers is:
    The personal life deeply lived always expands into truths beyond itself.

    Then again that is more my personality...Thanks for the smile today dear one. (Hugs)Indigo
