I admire other people's tattoos, but I've never thought of myself as a person who could carry one off. Tattoos don't "fit" me. I have two piercings but I don't think of them as part of self-expression. I have finally realized that it's as simple as this: tattoos don't talk (except for that X-Files one). All my self-expression problems are about finding my voice, getting more vocal, and making myself heard, not any kind of art or symbol. I'm not even sure what kind of tattoo would really be me, since it's my voice, or lack of, that's so important.
