Actually had a great salesperson and didn't see too much to sear the retinas, it is what it is. Unvarnished.
But looking at all the plastic and rubber and cheap Chinese crap, I got to thinking about just how I fit into the whole picture? To think I used to write about and sell fine silver. Way out. Never coming back. Artwork and antiques? We have been down that road before, not this current generation anyway.
You can go down the list yourself, you know this one by heart if you read me regularly.
And I'm thinking, the millennials really don't buy much of anything besides disposable electronics, vaping pens and tattoos, how do I function and thrive in this brave new world of ours?
We take a note from Ed Gein and merely perfect our skinning and tanning technique. Stretch them and frame them. And enjoy our dearly departed for ever, or at least until they really start to smell!
We at Blue Heron Taxidermy™ will send them home with you so you can view them hanging on the wall right next to the wide screen. Skinned and stretched in the time it takes to see a preview and a matinee.
I saw what is maybe the third full face tattoo I have seen in Fallbrook the other day. What a great idea and investment that is. Nothing screams proclaiming your own individuality like covering your entire face with indelible ink.
And I'm thinking "what a pity that one day all this beauty and creativity will go to waste." But it doesn't have to.
Why will I not be surprised when certain millennials and Gen Z folks read this proposal, love it and then get wills written to have their heads mounted on plaques post mortem. It seems to fit into the overall tattoo aesthetic, so why not? If you need a portable relative you can consult with the head shrinkers that are still in business. He is looking good! "Every day in every way it's getting better and better!"
Watch it happen, Jon...
I like the idea of individuals preserving their tattoo, however not with framing the flesh that there on. Rather why not consider having a professional photo made of it (by you of course) when it's in all of its glory and with the appropriate mating and framing. Maybe consider a "Monthly Saturday Photo" session in the Village Square or some other venue. It certainly works for photos with Santa perhaps it will with "Tattoo Preservation" as well.
Just a thought. Michael
Reminds me of the story of the woman who confided that when she was young she had a little rose bud tattooed on her chest, Now, she says, it's a long stem rose.
