you know you have a good tattoo artist…

…when he touches up at no charge a tattoo he did for you a year ago. When your tattoo is healing, leave it alone. If you don’t, it’s not likely to turn out as solidly black as you would like.

My next tattoo is going to be some kind of Felix the Cat image, but I’m not sure exactly what. Why? My grandfather, who died about three years ago, had a Felix on his forearm that he’d gotten inked back in the ’30s in New York when he was in the navy. I’d like to find a nice, vintage image to use, rather than the more slick recent adaptations.

Hmm, it turns out Felix played an important role in broadcast history.
