5-second story

22 04 2012

Today at work, a customer, a man, asked about my ring tattoo. I gave him the story in a friendly way and he responded by touching it. Not just a touch, but repeatedly slowly rubbing his finger over it, as if giving a finger massage. Was it to feel its permanence, as I suggested was its significance, its presence as an object (as if the skin there should have been raised like a ring), or seeing if it would rub off instead–even if just a little (nothing is ever truly permanent)?
