The Power of Christ Compels You (more dogs bites & tattoos)
This post relates to a couple of my other recent entries, so you might want to read those first if you haven’t already.
The first is an account of me being bitten by a dog.
The second is a list of my current tattoos. Simple!
A week after being bitten, my ankle still hadn’t healed so I decided it was time for some affirmative action. Some people said I should have gone to the hospital to get a tetanus jab but no way, Jose! As Jesse “The Body” Ventura said on the set of Predator, “I ain’t got time to bleed“.
Nevertheless, a week later I did start to have second thoughts. @tojofo suggested that it was because of my werewolf tattoo that the dog bit me in the first place, and this reminded me of An American Werewolf in London – “Beware the moon, lads…”. It then occurred to me that a full moon was imminent that very weekend; what I would be needing wasn’t a doctor, but a vicar! Or maybe a silver bullet.
Wisely, I decided the best course of action was to tattoo a small crucifix on my heal – to ward off the evil forces. Or maybe it’s a plague cross to let people know I’m contaminated, not too sure.
As I was about to begin, a quick count revealed that this would be my thirteenth tattoo. Obviously, my thirteenth tattoo had to be a “13” so I etched that onto my thigh quickly, before doing the crucifix. A 2-for-1 tattoo deal of sorts then.
Needless to say, the heal was quite painful and I messed up both of the tattoos. Still, a least I didn’t turn into a werewolf or die from lockjaw, so it must have worked!
Yeah, I couldn’t be bothered to rotate the photos before uploading…
