In a fieldI am the absence of fieldThis is always the case.Wherever I am,I am what is missing.When I walkI part the airAnd always, the air moves inTo fill the spaces where my body’s been.We all have reasonsFor moving.I move to keep things whole.

My second tattoo, done by the same artist who did my first.
The absolutely amazing Alicia VanCuren, at Subculture City in Kannapolis, NC.
She’ll be moving to Blood, Sweat & Tears in Charlotte, NC in the next couple weeks. I can’t thank her enough.

In a field
I am the absence of field
This is always the case.
Wherever I am,
I am what is missing.
When I walk
I part the air
And always, the air moves in
To fill the spaces where my body’s been.
We all have reasons
For moving.
I move to keep things whole.

My friend Kelsey’s tattoo of swallows and forgetmenots. She waited 6 months for it and it turned out super awesome! Courtesy of Joshua Bowers in Beaverdale, IA.

Water color tattoo done by Michelle Carter of 1001 Troubles tattoo. This was done at a tattoo convention in Morgantown, WV, but their tattoo shop is based in Rhode Island. I love her work and plan for this to be the start of a water color sleeve :)
