Detail View - Quote This is a

tattoo of nietzsche

This is a detail view of the Friedrich Nietzsche quote, "All things that are truly great are at first thought impossible." The text was the most intense part of the process, but it turned out really well. Just don't move. ;)
Amor Fati My latest tattoo.

nietzsche tattoo quote

My latest tattoo. It's from Nietzsche and literally translates as "love of fate" or "love of one's fate" (depending on verb conjugation and all that stuff). The original quote from Ecce Homo : "My formula for greatness in a human being is amor fati: that one wants nothing to be different, not forward, not backward, not in all eternity. Not merely bear what is necessary, still less conceal it - all idealism is mendaciousness in the face of what is necessary - but love it." It has become a personal philosophy of sorts.

sick after tattoo

View Large On Black. Seriously. Do it. You can see the veins popping out of my forehead. I'm fully deaf in one ear right now. I thought my cold was finally receding. My ear felt a little clogged. Cold receding, drainage. I figured it was a good sign. After the play last night, I went out with Kristina for some much-needed us-time, and I didn't leave until 1am. It started raining, hard. So I huddled under a busstop with about 20 drag queen prostitutes, and managed to get hit on. I'm not sure if the guy hitting on me thought I was a girl, or packing extra punch. And I'm not sure if I should be flattered or appalled. The latenight busses were slow in coming, so I ended up crashing with my friend Todd, who lives on the bus route between Kristina and I. By the time I got to his house at 3am, there was a deafening silence in my right ear. I've always been a bit hard of hearing, but having it completely gone on one side is actually really disturbing. But it didn't hurt, just a lot of pressure and auditory / balance confusion. I woke up in in paralyzing pain, literally sweating and hallucinating. My ear was so bad that my jaw hurt, and f I tipped my head at all to the right side, it felt like my head would break open. I couldn't fall back to sleep, so I I traded dreams for delirium until Todd had to get up for work. I think my eardrum might rupture. Antibiotics put me in anaphilactic shock, so I'm going to give it a day before I risk my life to save my hearing. I'm home now. With Vicodin. I can't feel my ear, or my skin for that matter, so life is good. I think there should be a facebook fangroup for vicodin.
