"So, are all your tattoos from movies?"
That's what the tattoo artist who inked me today had to say. Fair enough. I guess it is unusual to walk around tattooed with items from popular films. But not completely unheard of. As you may or may not know, I have the tattoo that Leeloo has in The Fifth Element on my wrist already. That one was done over four years ago and I had been itching to get another for a while. I'd been throwing around a few ideas until one finally felt right.
On one hip I had written, "No Fate." As in, "no fate but what we make," from Terminator 2: Judgement Day. And yes, that is the T2 font. Pretty self explanatory in it's meaning I'd say.
On the other hip I got the opposing sentiment, "Swing Away." As in, "Tell Merrill to swing away," from Signs. This one may be a little tough to grasp for people who haven't seen the film but here's the gist. The movie delves into whether things in our life are already predetermined, that everything happens for a reason. In the film, the character Merrill's penchant for always swinging at a pitch no matter what winds up saving his families life. There are several other examples of this type of providence in the movie but "His Lungs Were Closed" or "It's Contaminated" just didn't have the same ring to it. :)
