Earlier this week, I saw a picture of someone who had their face and body covered in tattoos.
My reactions were many and varied. How did they find work? (they are a tattoo artist, btw) Did they get a lot of questions? Were they comfortable showing something so personal to the world? Was it painful?
Then I realized that in many ways, I have my own inner tattoos.
The most obvious one is acting. Whenever I’m in the booth or onstage, I’m displaying something very personal. Often times a lot of work and pain went into creating it. And when others find out what I do, there are always questions.
Maybe the only difference is that my tattoos are not on the outside. Just hidden beneath the surface.
I think we all have inner tattoos. And some are brave enough to get the real thing.
Hope all your uniqueness shines through 😉
