    • And so it begins...

      I've commissioned an artist who specialises in scientific illustration to draw me a pair of dissected lungs. I figure I can always just keep it on paper if I'm too chicken. She asked for some reference measurements so I asked husband to oblige...

      I like badgers, books and booze, more or less in that order.

      • Get ready for the mother of all endorphin rushes baby. I have a tattoo in the middle of my upper back. Hurt like a bitch, but so worth it. Are you going to have it done in several sessions? or just go for it? Colour or black and gray? Sorry so many questions, I just love tattoos.
        I know what my next one will be, just not sure where I'm going to put it.

        • First I need to get the definitive artwork, then I'll sit with the idea for a while. Then I'll chat to my friend the tattooist and see what he advises - this whole project is going to be crazy expensive, but since the idea just won't die I think I'm going to do it.

          • I love the drawing. I'm a big fan of scientific illustration.

            • Badger - would it be worth your while having it drawn on your back using an indelible ink pen. This might take a week or two to scour off, and you could admire it, and see if its really what you want ????????

                I should be able to photoshop it on to a photo of my back and think on it. I'm not in any hurry - 40 is still three years away.

                • absolutely awesome tattoo idea. totally unique. my only constructive criticism is look at the lines in relation to your shoulders. i would straighten the lungs out a bit on top so as they don't round your shoulders out.

                    Thanks, Seas...I'll take that on board. I have terrible tall-girl posture and my shoulders are very rounded at the best of times.

                    • I don't have the best posture either. I did used to draw for a tattoo artist decades ago and he always said tattoing was different as the human body was a 3d living breathing moving object and was big with going with or against the lines of the body. so he looked at his big pieces as a whole on the body they were going on not as some isolated picture on a flat piece of paper.

                      • I also should say that I think it is a really good choice for a tattoo and it will look unreal when it is done. I would be incredibly excited at the prospect of getting it if I had a blank back as it is way cooler, and then some, than the standard angel wings.

                        • That will be an interesting tattoo... I've seen people wearing a shirt with that on it, but never seen it in a tattoo.... My daughter is a vascular ultrasound technician and she has made some noise about getting the major blood vessels of the leg inked on her leg....

                          • My dad is in my thoughts a lot right now.

                            Our relationship really died during my adolescence and only recovered when I was older and we could see each other as adults. Best friend was instrumental in helping me through that shift and appreciating my dad's unique take on life. I'm going to miss him terribly when he goes; I already miss terribly the large part of him that left when he had a stroke (why do we say 'his stroke' as if it was a bespoke calamity?).

                            Annecdata about my dad's awesomeness, in no particular order

                            My parents were walking through a park where there were life-size model animals. Suddenly my dad raced off and shouted 'take a photo!' He had positioned his arse right in front of the rhino's horn. My mum took the photo and the look of naughty glee on his face is priceless.*

                            One day when my dad was going to the bank, there were surveyors with theodolites and things outside. When he got to the front of the queue he told the cashier that there were men outside 'scoping the joint'. He got such a good reaction from this little stunt that he crossed the road and did exactly the same thing at the branch of a different bank.

                            My dad has convinced my mother's eldest sister that he is mentally deficient by deliberately and consistently mispronouncing words for the 60 years they have known each other.

                            My father put 50p in an empty ice-cream tub a woman was holding...and very much enjoyed it when she ran after him and told him that she wasn't homeless or collecting for charity.

                            One day I came home from school with some friends and my father stood behind the door and barked, because mum had taken the dog out and he thought we might miss the sound.

                            His dancing to Michael Jackson's 'Bad' cleared the floor at my first ever school disco.

                            I after I had mostly recovered from drinking a whole bottle of vodka straight and was simply lying fully clothed in an empty bath shaking he said gently 'alcohol is a poison and you have poisoned your body' then he shut the door and never mentioned it again.

                            When I came home from a night out with a neck completely disfigured with lovebites my mother asked me who had choked me. I explained what they were and my mother banged on and on in tones of absolute menace about the lad in question trying to get inside me. My father asked if he'd stood on a step ladder.

                            Not a funny story, but a meaningful one. My dad looked after mum's younger sister when their father died and their mother moved in with the Catholic priest. Mum was 15, aunt was 13. Dad was 21. Aunt says my mum was useless (though my mum says something quite different), but my dad kept her safe.

                            *Later best friend, Zoom and I found a park that had giant wooden badgers in it. We sent my father a picture of his daughter pretending to be receiving oral pleasure from a badger. I've still got that photo on disc somewhere...it's hilarious.

                            • That tatt and the idea of it looks the business, it'll look fantastic, liking it! Saw the girl who done my last one in passing on Saturday and thought that I need to get my next one in motion!

                              Your pre-stroke dad sounds like an absolute hoot.
