There’s a Hippo on my Back!

I’m not really into tattoos. I don’t have one and I don’t plan on getting one. Why, I don’t know. Probably fear of pain. Also, I have lots of freckles and I feel like I don’t need any more body decor. My skin is already busy enough. But I am fascinated with people who get tattoos. How do they choose a design? Where should it go on the body? Do they ever get sick of it and want it removed? So it was with some interest that I read a recent blog post over at, an independent weekly student newspaper at the University of Victoria in Canada. Student Will Johnson writes about his hippo tattoo in a post entitled, “Taking the tattoo plunge: an adventure.” Apparently Will is a huge hippo fan and even suspects that he may have been a hippo in a previous life. He identifies with the hippo so much that he had a giant one tattooed on his back. Read his article here.
