hey did you guys know that i got a Dear Sugar tattoo on friday? from #41, Like An Iron Bell:

"Do you realize that your refusal to utter the word love to your lover has created a force field all its own? Withholding distorts reality. It makes the people who do the withholding ugly and small-hearted. It makes the people from whom things are withheld crazy and desperate and incapable of knowing what they actually feel.

So release yourself from that. Don’t be strategic or coy. Strategic and coy are for jackasses. Be brave. Be authentic. Practice saying the word love to the people you love so when it matters the most to say it, you will.

We’re all going to die, Johnny. Hit the iron bell like it’s dinnertime.”

Bedevilled @5ivecents ‘s knee today… No pressure: first time tattooing a knee, on my boss, surrounded by @myleskarr , @davepscee , and @incognitotattoo … But no pressure… I wasn’t pooping my pants and puking in my mouth the whole time or anything. Colour to follow.
