This is Pilar Pedrosa Pilar‘s tattoo.
I’m having “which a minute will reverse” done on my left arm to complement this line. I like having J. Alfred all over my body.
This is Chelsea’s.
This is Emily’s.
And indeed there will be time
To wonder, “Do I dare?” and, “Do I dare?”
Time to turn back and descend the stair,
With a bald spot in the middle of my hair—
(They will say: “How his hair is growing thin!”)
My morning coat, my collar mounting firmly to the chin,
My necktie rich and modest, but asserted by a simple pin—
(They will say: “But how his arms and legs are thin!”)
Do I dare
Disturb the universe?
In a minute there is time
For decisions and revisions which a minute will reverse.
– T.S. Eliot, The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock
