The buzzing of the needle

scares many away

but the thrill that it elicits

is not achieved another way.

The message that I’m making

lasts forever on my skin

and I’ll take it to my grave,

along with all my sins.

Plain black or even color too,

my skin, the empty canvas awaits

for the artist’s fine creation

and the pure joy it elates.
