Marking The Years

Secret South got the “32″ on his thirty-second birthday, followed by another friend who got his on his 36th birthday, and then another during her 33rd year. Finally, his lover got hers this past Sunday for Mother’s Day during her 34th year. I can make some guesses about their personalities from their individual choices of fonts, but the only thing I can deduce for sure is that Secret South is mature and prefers the company of people older than himself.

  1. Shannon.

    Thanks so much for the post! I am so stoked to be a part of ModBlog while you are still here.

    My BME page is currently down, although I am working to get it back up. If anyone is interested in checking out my other blog, I post as wiseblood at

  2. Here is a bit more commentary about my 32. When I got this it was very spur of the moment. I felt this weird sense of urgency to get it on my birthday. Fortunately for me I was able to get Jack at Apocalypse Tattoo (Seattle) to stay a bit late and provide it for me. I decided to go with the typewriter font and for it to be a bit blurred to look old.

    At the time I had no idea that any of my friends were going to get theirs done. It is just something that happened. And as it turns out these are the most important people in my life. So I really consider myself lucky.



    I got my IAM page back up and running:

  3. I really really like the 36. Man that’s cool.
    Wait! That’s me!
    Thanks for the post. I can attest – none of the people whose wrists are in this picture have even a hint of maturity.

  4. reminds me of the tattoos of the numbers prison gang in the bbc south african prison gangs film.

    Secret South – thanks for the extra explanation. Seems like it was fated for you guys to be inked together!
