assumptions....

o poor and unread blog how i have missed you .... well kind of ....but not really......a few of you have commented that you like this silly blog of mine so for you i keep it up... you know who you are and i appreciate the kind words even if you only read this for some sadistic amusement.... and of course i  continue to keep a blog so i can flex my strong but apologetic dr jekyle and mister hyde of an ego that i have..... soap box soap box i love to get on my soap box even if it is in a closet...and say all the stupid things that unfortunatley my poor wife has to here me rant about ... and yes i didnt bother to spell check this... this is how i would write it with my pen.... i make no appologies ....so anyway....

many things have collided in my  brain lately and its hard to grab them all and stuff them in a catergorized  boxes  and then dump them out of my mouth one by one.... i have learned that i really just grab all my thoughts and dump them out in one big box... so here it goes...

i often times assume people know things.... this is a bad quality of mine.......i really need to work on it.... a few things i assume but shouldnt ......

permanancey .... permanentcy .... permanentcie ...... permanancy...... i obviously  cant spell it..... but i am so tired of hearing about it.....look... lets be honest .... tattoos really arent that permanent.... they are only as permanent as you... which isnt very..... in the scheme of things tattoos might be the least permanent things.... sure a walmart bicycle is less permanent than a tattoo.....but your house will long live you ... and your tattoo... ... your house  will be here when you are not...that writing you wrote in the side walk when you were a kid will out live your tattoo.... if you make just about anything outside of a cheeseburger it will more than likely be around this great planet longer than you will...it is a strange thing for people to realize that an acrylic painting they could make will last longer than that doodle on there arm.... it is an odd thing to realize not only among material items but in the category of art tattoos are such a temporary item.... so if you havent picked it up by know.... look.... how many tattoos do we have from ancient times... or even renisance times.... one two ... maybe 5 ... i dont know... but that michelangelo is still hanging proudly... are you catching my drift?

so look ... this is where im headed.... tattoos wont last longer than us....they are a destinction mark of a desicion in time... in the wearers life.... both fleeting and in consiquential.. really,... to the race of human kind.... though powerful (or at least should be) to the owner of the tattoo marking on there outwards self a desision.... which leads me to this......

people that are scared of permanantcy or what they call permanentcei  are really scared of a desicion.... a desicion that they are held to... tattoos are the physical accountablity of a desision of a thought...... if you regret desisions you make than tattoos are not for you....and  i feel very sad for you..... dont get me wrong.... i dont feel as if every action i have taken is the right one in my life by any means and trust me i have some not so pretty tattoos...but none the less they are mine both bad tattoos and bad desisions and i take them as a consiquence not as a punishment.......if you never make poor desisions how can you make wise ones.... when i lay on my death bed i hope that i feel like i have burned my body out and that i have left no stone unturned that i wanted unturned... i hope i do not look back and think about all the things i wish i should of done all the stones left unturned...... i hope this for everyone...a life of poor desisions is better than a life of no desisions...... failure is the mother of success...... nothing is the mother of nothing....

another assumption i often make but shouldnt is ...what people think a good tattoo is...... i assume everyone should know this...... this again is a wrong thought.....and obviously people have no idea what a tattoo is....this should have been evident to me long ago..... i guess everyone should at least know.....but how can they know unless there told.... dear tattooers... please start telling people what a good tattoo is..... even if your ideas are not mine.... tell them.... people dont know unless they are told and right now they are not usually getting told what a good tattoo is from the right source... and people... pintrest and google are lying to you.... these are not good tattoos.... bad tattoos generate more bad tattoos.... please stop this on both ends........

not every tattoo has to have some deep fucking meaning... get over yourself ... or should i say the programing that tv and your idiot cousin has given you......does every painting in your house have a meaning..... is everything in a frame in your living room words???? what happened to the power of tattoos.....the power of pictures and symbols......we as a society are moving so far away from our primal subconsious selves it is scary....... if you are drawn to get a tiger on your arm... do it.... there is a reason you are drawn to it.... your consious mind does not need to know why .... you will know  later... or maybe you wont... even better.... you dont have to spell out paragraphs on paragraphs of some words your consious mind understands.... how limiting....  tattoos are magic.... true there is magic in text... read that book .... listen to that song.... but really ..... tattoos should be tattoos... not those words  but the feelings need only to  be tattooed for your tattoo to be magical and powereful.... sure its fine if your tattoos mean something or if they are reminders.... my last tattoo was a snail... to remind me to slow down.... i didnt right ... slow down... just breathe .... or chill the fuck out.... on my arm.... sorry but a picture of a snail will bring far much more energy than some lifeless computer font that sits on your consious minds computer all day... lame... unplug..... find the magic of tattoos.....

which brings me to hopefully my last point in this rant....houses look usually like houses for a reason... sure they are stylistically often times very different but usually have the same basic makeup and structure.... walls ... floor .... roof....  sculpures often times look like sculpures... not to many sculptures are made to look flat.... those are called paintings.... paintings often times usually look like paintings... they are usually paint on something usually flat ... not always ... often times hung up on a wall or sat on a ledge of some kind.... yes all these have a certain prescience in our 3 dimensional world and have to adhere to some basic pricipal for them to be what they are.... a house is not a painting.... a house with two walls and no roof is not a house... its just two walls....  so yes .... you guessed it.... a tattoo also must adhere to certain principles ..... sure you can make to walls and call it a house.... but it just isnt is it......tattoos must be built like houses..... you can only take out so many walls before the roof comes crashing down and it is no longer structurally sound.....i hate to break it to most people on pintrest but there tattoos are built like a house with no walls.....tattoos like all other art are confined to a set of rules that it has to remain in or it is a failure.... if you take to much off of a clay sculpture you can always add some... if you take to much off a stone sculpture you are screwed... good luck gluing that rock piece back on where davids wiener is suppose to be.... ... tattoos are like the rock sculpture.....they have a small window on how they can operate outside this window , again is failure.....i know its cruel an unusual to say that tattoos do not need to emulate any other form or art... but tattoos are there own art... as a sculpture would not try to imitate a painting ..... thus a tattooer should not try to immulate other art forms with a tattoo....  translate yes perhaps.... but copy no..... tattoos should have there own form and style free from other artistic medium....
these songs have surfaced themselves to me recently i feel like they deserve a second listen........
