Thinking Outside the Box:
Steed Gets a Tat

By Paul "Villam" Steed

…Until finally he STOPPED INFLICTING THE PAAAIINNN!!! Just kidding. Truth is it wasn’t really as bad as I thought, but not something I’m in a hurry to repeat any time soon.

So right after it was finished it looked something like this…

And today as I write this it’s almost healed (skin scabs up and peels like a sunburn…) and it looks like so…

So I’m not advocating this sort of dermal chicanery to you young thinkers out there but hey, if you’re old enough to vote and die for your country, then get a tat if you want. Last Tuesday I satisfied an itch that lasted 15 years before I doing the deed so just ‘think before you ink…’ (and stay away from the back of the arm…owwie…)
