I have this unbearable urge to get another tattoo, thanks to Lainie
[tabulas.com]. :p I’ve been actually wanting one for a long, long time
but have put it aside due to certain constraints, hereby stated in
1. My girlfriend would have a fit.
2. My parents will disown me.
3. My girlfriend’s parents would disapprove.
I have this line I call the Impulse Line (IL). It’s a very permeable
line, but only on one side, unfortunately. I would be driving along,
thinking about going home when this loud, annoyingly alluring fast
music gets into my auditory senses and I grab my cell phone. I’m
standing on the IL at that point. It just takes a nanosecond for me to
decide to press Call and meet up with my barista friend. That’s the TTL
(Time To Live) of my neurological biochemistry. Just one nanosecond to
That’s how I got all my previous tattoos…the first one, I was just
sitting on a bus and passed by a tattoo studio and said, okay, I’m
going to get one today and I went in and got one. The second time was
when I was talking to my friend about getting my gf’s name tattooed on
my left forearm…it was the middle of the night, and I thought, sounds
good, and promptly got it done the next day.
I am very impulsive by nature. Once I cross the IL, it takes A LOT to get me back. I’m quite sure I crossed it today.

003 = My third tattoo
RFC 003 – Celtic cross tattoo
Here’s where it’s supposed to go. The Celtic cross goes on the nape
of my neck and the Latin phrase goes over my shoulders (back).
This is a simple and quick mockup I did of what it would look like. In nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti
is Latin for In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. I
know “nomine” is supposed to be in lower case, but I like it in
uppercase. It will be done in some Gothic font. I’m planning to get it
done at Borneo Headhunters Tattoo & Piercing.
Update: Holy shit, look at what James [blogspot.com] did! Thanks mate! I love this design, it’s love at first sight. What do you all think? Shall I? Shall I?
I will film the whole procedure, just for documentation’s sake, since I never did that for my previous ink work.
Tell me what you think.
