"If you want to be somebody special now, don’t have a tattoo, because everyone’s getting them, you know."
I’ve been considering getting a tattoo on and off. It’s such a difficult decision, because it’s an image that will be a part of you for the rest of your life. Every now and then, you see a person with a ridiculous tattoo or a very cliche one. There’s nothing special about that.
Fortunately, I came across this article a couple months ago. Every Time magazine issue has a “10 Questions for…” Ozzy Osbourne was the interviewee for this one: http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,1957475,00.html
My good memory (despite my constant lack of sleep) reminded me that he stated the above quote in a recent Time magazine article.
I’m glad I found it. What he said was so true. It really does feel special to not have one, because so many people have considered getting or have gotten one or two or more.
