A tattoo drawn,unlike no other.                                                                                             Embossing skin,with inks of color.                                                                                           Dragons,snakes,and other whims.                                                                                         Upon the skin,of a living canvas.                                                                                           Sometimes we wish,these things to be.                                                                                 A colored dream,that we can see.                                                                                           A picture postcard,for eyes to vision.                                                                                     For some a concept,for some revulsion.                                                                                 Beauty is,what the eye beholds.                                                                                           Some say yes,and some say no.                                                                                            For some it's art,for some it's not.                                                                                          But the choice is yours,and yours alone.                                                                                To dream a dream,unlike no other.                                                                                         And place this dream,in living color.                                                                                        Embossing skin,with inks of color.                                                                                           A tattoo drawn,unlike no other.

    Beautiful words... I love tattoos although I've never had one I have two in mind. I've designed a few that have been used (which I find humbling as it's art for life)lovely write of freedom of choice.
