So, what better way to start a Saturday than by discussing the xenophobia and racism of the father of modern horror.

No?

Well, I have this long-standing theory about the pantheon of Northern Europe Heathenism as compared to current societal norms?

No again huh?

Well, I mean, I can talk about tattoos?

Okay, I can do that, way to read the room Bear.

I don’t have enough tattoos, I can tell you that much. I get that people don’t like them, that is fine, those people are wrong and will not be spoken about in this because of this is a happy fucking place for happy fucking people.

Do you know how you leave yourself a note to call Aunt Judy to ask her about the book you wanted to borrow? Tattoos are notes you leave to yourself, forever, to remember a specific way you felt, or a specific place you went to, or a thousand million other things. They are the ultimate in personal expression and they are the delightfully painful reminder that there is nothing permanent on your flesh unless you choose for it to be.

Scars?

I have ink covering mine, and I have it covering it in a certain way and it means a certain thing to me. Why? Other than Cthulhu being cool? It is because that scar is a reminder of a horror show portion of my life whereas Cthulhu is a literal horror show. See? Well, I mean it doesn’t matter if you do, because I do, and that there is the beauty of it. It can be anything and everything and it is YOURS and no one can take it away from you.

They will try.

They will belittle you and make fun of you and you simply turn your perfectly illustrated skin away from them so you can have them kiss the delight of your ass. Unless it is your ass, and then you can tell them to fuck themselves in a much more direct and honest way, right?

I miss tattoos. I haven’t had one in a while now and I suppose it is time for me to bite the bullet and to find an artist I trust as much as I did my last one. It will suck, but there is a draw to the ink and the pain that I simply have a very hard time ignoring.

Yeah…
