47 years old, my buddy gets his first tattoo. Artistically, its impressive. It is well detailed, and the colours are strong and balanced. Even at a distance, where some tats look like bruises, his continues to look like art.
Still, I wonder how long he'll enjoy it. Is this a forever piece, or something he'll regret? Will he, at 57, continue to feel like he does now? And how has he evolved from his 37 year old, ink-free self? Attitudes, outlooks, and tastes are not static. Does he really want something that won't change?
Or maybe he wants something that won't change?
