Their story comes to life on my flesh,
The story of two souls creating one image.
This tattoo pierces skin deep and into my blood.
The needle did not hurt, as it pierced my skin with love
It is neither here nor there, and stretches infinitely
across my life revealing their influence.
Its imprint seeps down below into my inner essence
This tattoo tells of who I am, and where I am from
It is forever fresh upon my skin, and does not heal
The artists drew themselves on me, and took great care
Their devotion and love for their art clearly visible
They poured bits of their own souls in the needles, for
better and worse.
They did not flinch, nor did they make any mistakes
Their creations live as a part of me forevermore
Across my skin, into my heart, and resting in my soul
This tattoo tells the story of love and creation
This tattoo will not peel after three or four days,
that I am sure of.
This ink is permanently set for all eternity
The story is waiting to be finished, the needle now in my hands.
