Living Canvas


Today rather than actually doing the school work I swore I was going to get done today I went with Ayesha to Living Canvas Tattoos. Of course their are few reasons to go to a tattoo parlor. I was going to hold Ayesha's hand while she got the crescent and star from the Pakistani flag tattooed on her back. Sadly for Ayesha there was a no hand holding rule but I got to watch the whole process from a very close stool on the other side of the counter. It was fascinating. (Hey, tatooing is an art form.) I am still too wimpy to actually get a tattoo and I don't have any symbol that is so important to me that I feel I need to have with me wherever I go but Ayesha's tattoo turned out super cool and I'd love to watch more tattooing.

I realize you don't 'know' me, but I wish to thank you for going with Ayesha to get inked. I know it meant the world to her. And as an aside. I have a huge affinity for art teachers and couldn't be happier that you two have hit it off. Keep inspiring those kids and Ayesha. You ever need dirt on her, I'm your man.

I think I could use a new tat, when do you want to go?
