I usually don't post pictures of my tattoos on the internet because I mostly get them for me and all that but I always look forward to posts here with actual pictures so I feel compelled to share my new tattoo with you.

Photographing it was hell so of course it looks all twisted but it's much less twisty when I am not trying to take a picture of it. Also, it is only two hours old so it's still pretty swollen.

It comes from an Anne Sexton poem called "The Addict".

I really like that! Congrats! Textual ink lends itself so incredibly well to this STARK and SIMPLE form and yet is so much heavier...

Anne Sexton is probably my favorite poet.
"The Addict" was one of the first poems of hers that I read and one of the ones I most identify with.

I identify with it so much. It's really sort of my whole silly, stupid life in one poem.
