Tattoos for the Indescisive

For years I’ve considered tattooing various lines of verse and prose all over my back. The problem is that I often change my mind on what lines I’d want to stick on my body (although the opening verse of “The Waste Land” and various lines from Blood Meridian have endured as ideas for sometime).

Fortunately for people like me, a new type of ink will soon be introduced that is completely removable by conventional laser treatment. The developers say that the new ink will reduce tattoo removal costs to about $1,000 per tattoo and emphasize that the tat will be completely removed.

It is also said that the company is working on an ink composed of biodegradable polymer beads that fade over the course of years. I guess now my excuses are lessened significantly and everyone will realize I’m just a wuss. Crap.
