Since my 30th birthday present from the boy was meant to be a tattoo, I've been trying to assemble my scrambled brain cells together long enough to decide finally on a what and a where. This is something I have long been pondering (since getting my first at the age of 21, they seem to be rather like Pringles), and you would think it shouldn't prove too daunting a task. I've narrowed it down to the idea of a few lines of text, written in a stylised typefont, probably on my lower back.
And now, the words.
Something meaningful to me now that's not going to make me feel like a complete and utter pretentious wanker when I am 82.
Something that won't make me look like an illiterate knob when someone else catches a glimpse of it.
Something that really represents the inner Nine, now and forever.

Or I could just pick random lines from whatever books I'm reading? Page 65, line five, first three sentences -->

'Oh. But he's dead'
'You can still be cool when you're dead. In fact, its much easier, because you aren't getting old and fat and losing your hair'

You know, that one actually has a certain something to it?

'As long as cardiac output and renal prefusion improve with therapy, renal function is usually maintained. Poor glomerular filtration is more likely to result in overdiuresis, excess vasodilation, or severe mocardial dysfunction. Reducing the diuretic dosage may restore renal function.'
Useful for when I sit MACVS exams, but I suspect I'll need a hell of a lot more tatts if thats the way I'm planning on getting through.

'A crowd flowed over London Bridge,so many, I had not thought death had undone so many. Sighs, short and infrequent, were exhaled, and each man fixed his eyes before his feet.'

Bollocks to this. Maybe I'll just get a snark instead....
