So it goes #17

And “So it Goes” Saturdays resumes… now.

Literary Tattoos: Slaughterhouse Five Kurt Vonnegut So it goes.

This is Faith’s tattoo.  She says it is “a way for me to commemorate my past and to consent to my future.”

This was posted as a part of “So it Goes” Saturdays. The phrase “so it goes” appears in Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse-Five 106 times. Can you help me collect 106 “so it goes” tattoos? 17 down, 89 to go.

    That’s my question too. It could also have been done—I think—with a tattoo needle and no ink as a form of scarification.

    I have a “so it goes” tattoo – I think I submitted it to you when I got it about a year ago – but where did you get the 116 number? I went back a few months ago and tried to count, and only made it to 106.
