So one of my best friends has a (fairy) god(dess) mother who specializes in tattoo cover up. I’ve seen some of her work, and SG (my friend) is gonna make me an appointment with her in the spring to get my tattoo covered up. It won’t be gone, but she can turn it into something I’ll love. It’s a music note heart on my wrist that I got as a dare when I was 17 from my brothers, and I’ve hated it since the week I got it.
I’m getting it covered up by turning the music note into a sunflower, and then I’m getting the word ‘holy’ on my wrist. I originally wanted the entire quote from Ginsberg of ‘Holy the supernatural extra brilliant intelligent kindness of the soul’, but I think that’s too long for anywhere I would want it, and also, I think ‘holy’ on it’s own better covers the entire feel of the poem that has touched me so much (‘Footnote to Howl’). Holy the body <3<3
The sunflower is also inspired by Ginsberg, in his poem Sunflower Sutra.
—We’re not our skin of grime, we’re not our dread
bleak dusty imageless locomotive, we’re all
beautiful golden sunflowers inside, we’re blessed
by our own seed
