I’ve been thinking of getting a tattoo. Maybe I’m trying to rebel against the man or maybe I am trying to hold on to my youth. I don’t know. I just want one.
I think I’ve found the perfect one too. A statue of the Duke of Wellington. Why you ask? Well, back when I was in college I did a semester abroad in Leeds, England. I had to walk to Uni. every day. The walk was a good 35-40 minutes away from my residence hall. Sure, I could have taken the bus everyday but that is no fun – plus the pound was so strong against the dollar that it would have cost me a fortune.
There was a big park that I would pass through just before entering the Uni. campus. This statue of Duke of Wellington was located right where the campus met the park. I walked buy it everyday. His boots were painted by students. I loved it.
After thinking for awhile I decided this would be the perfect tattoo. Now, I don’t know if it would look terrible as a tattoo but if I can find someone to make it look good I just might get it done. Honestly, I doubt I will ever get this done. I am too much of a wuss.
So Internet strangers, what do you think? Is this a dumb idea?
