Tit for tattoo

I am getting a tattoo for my belated birthday (when you’re older, everything slows down, hence the ‘belated’ part). I’m tatting at one of the best tattoo shops in the world in Amsterdam, Schiffmacher & Veldhorn. I already feel feel like rock ‘n’ roll royalty! That said, no one likes the idea that I’m getting a tattoo. Apparently, somewhat like zombies, people are of the opinion that there are just too many of them. Yet I like the idea that most of us get tattooed when were young, and I’m getting mine when I’m, well, old(er). I think in this day and age with zombies and the like, people are getting tattooed to make them feel more empowered. So while I’m at it, I might just make myself a cape and save a few souls or solve a few crimes. Since you asked…my tattoo will be a Japanese  “kanji” saying, “Mizu no kokomo”, which (loosely translated) means “A mind like water”. Bruce Lee once said, “You must be shapeless, formless, like water…become like water, my friend”. Yeah, there’s a zen watery theme here! P.S. This is a photo of my fake tattoo, which means in kanji, “No regrets” so absolutely no regrets!
