Got this today at Eternal Image in Tiffin, OH by Jim Cook. It’s on my inside right leg; spent about forty-five minutes in the chair, cost of $100 [SO much less than what I was expecting, with all the color it uses].
It’s the TARDIS from Doctor Who, done in a Van Gogh style, for the episode “Vincent & the Doctor.” This episode is my favorite for far too many reasons to get into here. Under it I have “allons-y” in my own handwriting—the Tenth Doctor’s catchphrase; “let’s go” in French. Felt it was appropriate to have under the thing he uses to travel through all time and space.
Personal reasons for getting a Who tattoo…I’ve only been a fan for a few months, but already the show means so much more to me than almost anything. I love what it teaches—life is short, live it well. Be extraordinary. Nothing is set in stone—if you want to change something there’s no reason you can’t. I love the idea of whizzing around through the universe, what there is to discover. I could go on for days about what exactly it means to me, but for now suffice to say it helps me realize that life is a wonderful experience, and any moment could be incredible if you just make it. Now…allons-y!
