      1. When I think of the reason why Sarah chose “tattoo,” the first thing I thought of was those who have been branded without a choice in the matter. It’s mind-boggling. Hate is a horrible thing.

        Your novel sounds interesting as well. Are you researching material?

  1. Reblogged this on kirstwrites and commented:
    Check out the #SixWordStoryChallenge over at Wonderwall this week. It’s an intriguing prompt this week – “tattoo”.

    This gives me a few ideas. I’ve been considering getting myself inked for a few years now. Will I ever take the plunge? My grandad had a tattoo on his arm, so happy childhood memories there. And my youngest daughter regularly “tattoos” herself with biro and felt tip pens, getting ink all over her bedding.

    So… just need to think how to turn one of those trains of thought into a six word story.

      1. I wrote a book about a magic death-predicting tattoo and have been in the thick of querying that book out. So I figured I would visit the other type of tattoo. I used to work in a music store with two military peeps so they would practice the tattoo on their trumpets all the time.
