The paradox of a tattoo.

The definition of a paradox (noun): “a situation, person, or thing that combines contradictory features or qualities.”

And so we are mesmerized considering the paradox inherent in a skin tattoo.

Although you should love a tattoo design and consider its placement carefully before you get inked — it is part of you for the rest of your life, don’t worry too much.  We don’t live forever.

Tattoo: “permanent artwork on a temporary canvas.”

  1. But it is the entirety of our existence once the decision is made and executed, and the canvas degrades which one assumes would negatively affect the art. Unless that was considered to be a part of the desired progression. One might even say it is a more durable decision than, say, the chad punched in November since presidential terms are 8 years at most. A mere blink of an eye in ones adult life.
