Good Omens

This is Joni’s new tattoo:

It’s a quote from the Neil Gaiman/Terry Pratchett book Good Omens and it’s from the Dramatis Personae portion where Crowley is being described.  I decided on the quote because it made me smile, and maybe felt like it described me a little bit too.  The font is good old Courier – I wanted something that would look like it was lifted from the book.

      It’s between my shoulder blades – I figured if I was a fallen angel it should go between where the wings would be!

    I love this tattoo – as I love most of the tattoos on here – but can’t there be a rule against tattoos that aren’t yet healed on here? It’s kind of gross to look at.

        It’s all delightful now, I’ll get one taken tonight or tomorrow. I don’t find it gross to look at, at all, but then again, tis my skin I guess :) I’d have gotten that red had someone ran their nails over the spot – I’m a fair skinned redhead!

          I don't mind slightly red skin. Then again, I have people who send me pictures of their still-bleeding tattoos so maybe I'm just desensitized.
