Here, in Seattle’s Chinatown,
I’ve caught Tiger Tiger Tattoo

while the red paper lanterns
and umbrellas still glow out of the darkened shop,
like fireflies on a hot summer night.

I don’t know what your beliefs or feelings are about tattoos.
Personally, I don’t have any.
I’m too much of a wuss
and a bit too squeamish for the process.
Both of my 20 something children have them,
and lots of them, I might add.
My daughter in particular tries in vain
on the odd occasion,
to talk me into getting one done.
But I can’t think of anything
I like that well that I want it displayed permanently on my body.
Then there is the ‘what if they flub it up,’
it’s not like there are do-overs.
And regardless of my first objections,

What do you think about the whole issue?
Do you have one (some)?
