It’s difficult because you don’t want to make the mistake of a permanent tribute when the relationship may not last forever. You know, newer sexier models will probably come along and...

I've heard it's an inked image of The Great Myth, our own Martin Walker, so no risk of the relationship not lasting... :bouncy:

Eddy was stuck in traffic on the way to visit me today. He's sat here now getting reacquainted with his guitars, and in the morning will be heading off to the wilds of Cornwall to visit Martin.

He has done the track and will upload it on his return.

OK, probably going way off topic here, but why would anyone want to get tattooed? My son has some and, I think a lot of them were rebelling against my ex wife having become a Jehovah's witness (that was a factor in her becoming my ex), in that they were of a demonic nature. But as I said to him, because I read a lot of crime fiction, why would you want any identifiable marks if you were to commit a crime?

Regards, Simon.

Hi Simon!

I'm not sure that having identifiable marks in the event of committing a crime is the first thing that comes to mind when choosing to have/not have a tattoo :mrgreen:

My niece is a tattoo and piercing wonder. (I still wonder why?) anyway they had a baby and as a joke I thought I should pay for baby’s first tattoo. Seems I was late, not a tattoo but baby already has pierced ears. Surely they should wait to let the baby grow up and choose her lifestyle look.
Also
So you’re sitting in a restaurant (back in the day when) and a guy comes in with tattoos on his face. It’s like ‘don’t think of a pink elephant’, there Is no way you can’t look a few times. Didn’t he realize there would be constant staring and not because he is a handsome specimen of masculinity?

That could get confusing as there would then be three Eddy Deegans; you, me and the real one ;)

Well, I suppose the sensible approach would be to make sure you've committed all the crimes you want to before you get your first tattoo ;)

As to the why and where of the things, it's an interesting point to ponder. Martin and I were discussing it earlier and as I see it it's much like any other aspect of one's life. People have different decor in their houses, they prefer different foods, different kinds of music, some folk are dog people, some like cats, others snakes and so on.

So to me it doesn't really bear much analysis. It's something that either works for you or doesn't :-)

I didn't get my first tattoo until I was in my late 40s but I had been wanting to for about 15 years. Given their all-but-permanence I didn't want to get something I'd change my mind about later, which isn't so much of a consideration for some people, but was important to me.

I'd hope that most people who have met me would agree that my tattoos suit my 'way of being' regardless of whether they actually like the designs or even tattoos as a concept in general.

One thing I can say with absolute certainty is that after all those years of thinking about it, and about 3 years after my first, being now half-way through my fourth large design (a second session being required to complete it) I am very happy with, and comfortable in, my own skin.

I guess that's as good a reason as any why people have been doing it for thousands of years!

I'm not averse to the odd piercing myself. I think it falls into the same categry of tattoos. That said if you remove a normal piercing it heals up in no time so in that sense they are temporary when compared to tattoos.

This is when mini keys show their advantage. I wouldn’t want a DX7 through my ear . . . .
