Still Staying Calm

As I'd guessed, it's looking like about 30% – 45% of the tattoo is going to stay in… When my body has completely refreshed the skin above it, I'm going to have it hit again (and probably a third time after that to get it totally solid). People have asked me if it's helping, and you know, it's actually really great as a form of selbstpsychemodifikation. Because your brain automatically reads any text it's exposed to (thus the power of billboards), the words “stay calm” get superimposed on my daily life almost constantly — and it really does work.

If I think about this subject too much it would be better off as an article or ModBlog post (which I have a whack of posts for and will update later tonight), but seeing the effects that this tattoo has on me, I have to wonder about the subtle ways in which a person who wears “Born to Lose”, “Unlucky in Love”, or even “Hate” is affected by the words they see over and over attached to their bodies.

Anyway, I'm out the door now!

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
