My Tattoo from Book of Longing

I'm sorry for this random fit of Show-and-Tell, but I thought this was something that others could relate to. This LC sketch in particular spoke volumes to me about warped self-perception, the simplicity of lines, and how so much of life and longing and desire and love can be condensed down to the words "this feels good", which he wrote under the picture.

Not to mention Leonard Cohen is this beautiful god who I am humbled to have the face of on my skin.

Hi Christine ~

Welcome to the Forum two months late :) . Your tattoo artist did an admirable job of rendering Leonard's picture. As you age, it will also age with you, so not to worry. You're right about the lines and the condensing, too.
