Got a henna tattoo at the weekend. It’s a geometric sun symbol, on my left upper arm. I’m deciding how I feel about tattoos and trying out various ideas before possibly getting the real thing.
I used to think it was something I’d never do; I was never that into self-decoration, and I couldn’t think of anything that would still be meaningful to me in twenty years.
And then I did. I’m considering getting the logo of the Weimar bauhaus as a tattoo. The bauhaus is a constant influence on me—from my web designs at work, to the choice of furniture in the living room. (I refuse to give up capital letters, though. You can thank me now.)
