Tattoos and Memories

Ink etchings in skin were once used as a sacred honor
Now tattoos are dishonors
Once so holy now considered faux pas
A faux pas of expression
In emotional ways can be expressions through tattoos
Visible and non-visible, inked and non-inked

Tattoo's not only ink etchings, but
Memories permanently engraved into the mind
As tattoos are permanently engraved into the skin
Some things are not seen and kept that way
Like some moments of life that are to be private
And personal tattoos that are for our eyes only

Expressing memories takes a unique form
A preference, a lifestyle
Some keep their tattoos in their mind
While others put them on their body
Before judging the ink on a person's skin
Judge the ink within your mind
