Getting Ink Done

Well, got my third tattoo done a couple of weeks back. My mother thinks I’m going cuckoo in the head, but I achieved that a long time back. :)

It’s a design of a skeleton with a scythe, basically the personification of death.
I’ve had a fascination with skulls and skeletons for a longs time. No, it’s not something morbid. When we think about it, once the skin and the flesh is gone, we are all the same when it comes to the bones. I know there are slight variations in the bones, but it’s the flesh and the skin that makes us look the way we are. Without it we are basically all the same.

As for the Death part, well, you’ll definitely view it in a different way if you are familiar with Terry Pratchett’s character of Death from the Discworld series. He or it is one of my favorite characters from the series. Who else but the mind of Terry Pratchett can come up with Death who has a whacked out sense of humor, loves cats and rides around on a white horse named Binky. Who wouldn’t love that guy?

OK the pic is crappy. It’s really difficult to take a pic of your own arm, go figure.
