She is tolerable, I suppose. But not handsome enough to tempt me!

Okay KC Misery. What is going on? I was politely walking to the grocery store yesterday to pick up some eggs. No - I'm not going to relate the tale from 40 Year Old Virgin where he went home and really wanted an egg salad sandwhich - but I DID really want deviled eggs!

As I was walking past the BBQ smoker thing out in the parking lot of Hen House (what a name for a grocery store - but you can't beat King Soopers) the big guy manning the smoker said either, "Nice ASS" or "Nice Tats". I am inclined after much thought it was the latter. But what if it wasn't? WHAT THE HELL KIND OF PLACE DO I LIVE IN NOW????

I kept on walking and proceeded to my new bank where the teller was asking me about my tattoos as well. Is this a form of politeness? Flattery? Just conversation? Living in Capital Hill for so long has made me unacustomed to having people even mention my body art - as most people have more colorful and a greater quantity than me.

So in true form of being bored in the suburbs, I pondered this new occurance and decided to make an appointment with a tattoo artist refered to me by my friend, Greg. I just sent him an email today, in order to schedule a consultation. As much as I want a new tattoo, the lack of income is seriously deterring me from this path.
But after much deliberation on my other blog, I have narrowed down the decision to this pic:

I would like to vary the colors as I'm not very excited about that gold. I really like reds, greens, and blues so maybe more vibrant and make that koi the typical orange, white and black. And what do you think about that scroll? Keep it, or have her doing something else?

Hmmm.....

I like the tattoo idea above...but it seems like it would take awhile....very intricate!

I think it depends on what the scroll means...or at least to you anyway.

You should get a tattoo of tater tots. That would be awesome.

Oh my gosh, I like all of those options, but I do slightly prefer the one you chose. I like your new color scheme too. You should get something about O-ren Ishii on the scroll. Heheh. Whatever happened to your björk tattoo? Get that tat too!

` OMG, I was in my goth costume in Portland and I was swamped with foreign guys! It was so weird!

` And awesome picture!! I am picturing that as an everyday koi and I say go for it!

` BTW, I've been hit by a couple of bullets. It's pretty bad(ass). You might wanna come and take a look.
