It's Only Temporary

A long time ago in a faraway land (Brooklyn at 27 years old), I used to want a tattoo. After a lengthy deliberation over what it would be and where, I decided on a Charley Harper illustration of a bee on my right wrist in white ink. Once that was settled I told myself that I had to want it—REALLY want it—for a year solid before I would go under the needle. And then I kind of forgot about it. Which later made me realize I must not have wanted it that bad after all. 

This temporary tattoo designed by painter Mia Christopher would be a nice way to dip my toes back into the proverbial inky waters, without the pesky pain and FOREVER factors. And it's only a $5 commitment to boot. 
I also like that it looks a little like a beautiful bruise. 

If you're so inclined, you can peer at more of Mia's canvas and paper work on her website:
