Etched In Ink Part V: Not Alone


By Kevin Sheehan, Special Columnist

“Vivus: An Exposition Of A Volatile Mind” by Kevin Sheehan  is available in digital and in print on Amazon.com!

Regardless of weekly content, this column is designed to help others expand their way of thinking and promote creativity, empathy, and thought in general.

I have posted this in several places online to gather a response, and I wanted to extend this invitation to you as a reader. It is no secret that tattoos are now commonplace in our society, and many people enjoy the art, as well as the meaning behind it. I have been quite open about the meaning behind my tattoos in previous Etched In Ink articles in this column as well, in an effort to perhaps remove some of the stigma that are assigned tattoos.

I want to take this a step further though. I am undergoing another writing project which I am hoping will be substantial enough to warrant publishing. It will be a book based off of the series of Etched In Ink articles, but it will consist primarily of submissions from people who respond to this article and posts I have placed online.

You can find out a lot about a person based off of what tattoos they have. You can find out about people’s family, their history, and what is important to them. Occasionally, you might simply find out that a person loves tacos. Regardless of the pattern that the ink lays in the skin of the person, you find out what is important to them.

If you want to perhaps have your contribution published, please respond to the email below. If you are unsure of what exactly to say, look at the previously printed Etched In Ink articles for ideas on how to structure your response, and also be sure to include a picture. I look forward to your responses!

I have a tattoo of blue puzzle piece in support of autism. I have a infinity symbol made of bacon. I have a scientific notation on my back (I have a back problem). I have a motorcycle gearshift pattern on my left leg. I have a space scene on my left shoulder. There are so many reasons behind all my tattoos, but what I really want to know is: What do your tattoos mean?
