I can hardly believe this...but my friend KEITH SECKEL (see link to his blog under LINKS below) recently sent me this email about how he had been inspired by my article "Conversatio Morem!" and decided to get a tattoo of this message on the back of his neck (see the picture of said tattoo above).


I don't know what to say....has anyone else here tattooed themselves with any other phrases or ideas from my articles and columns?! I hesitate to ask...but, if you have, please let me know and I'll post the weirdness here.

This seriously does make me want to go ahead and create [subversive underground] t-shirts. It costs less than a tattoo, and it's painless!

more later..

heh. i'm famous!

for the record, the actual tattoo is done backward -- so I can read it when I look in the mirror.

oh yeah -- in case you can't tell, that is on my upper back near my neck.

It is my fourth tattoo, and I will be blogging about the significance of each later this week.

I've been wanting to incorporate this phrase in a tattoo for about 2 years now. I was explaining the concept to my friend today who is designing it when I ran across this article. And here I thought it was original:-)
