Beauty of the Tattoo

Color saturated flesh. Needle point.

An idea brought to life
Under heavy hand
That familiar sting
Those bloody lines

Engravings on my skin
Forever me and mine
Penetrating time

Earned the burn
Hot to touch

Art come alive on this human canvass

Permanent as the healing skin
Beautiful as the painter’s touch

Putting down on flesh
The emotions I wish to express
The words that fall short

An image
Made worth a thousand words

Be still my aching heart
