Wendi W. sends us these knuckles as a warning:
I’ve realized the best way to explain why I got this on my knuckles is to present a simple piece of writing by Dorothy Parker which reads:
Once, when I was young and true,
Someone left me sad-
Broke my brittle heart in two;
And that is very bad.
Love is for unlucky folk,
Love is but a curse.
Once there was a heart I broke;
And that, I think, is worse.
As much as I have loved each very much, I always “trade up”. This is what you do throughout the course of life, I just end up doing it back to back. The result being many broken hearts. As soon as I win a heart, I break it. It is a line from one of my favorite songs and I felt like it should be added to my collection of “warning” tattoos. Then, when I leave the next one, I can say, “I warned you” and maybe feel a little less guilty.
Tattooed by Doug Curtis at Diablo Rojo who also tattooed her other warnings: A giant “Poison” girl on my chest and a line down my arm:”The sweeter the apple, the blacker the core.”
