Drew three nines in a motorcycle poker run benefit for Dalmatian Rescue of Southwestern Virginia Sunday (yes, we rode in the rain).

That three-of-a-kind hand took the grand prize: A $300 tattoo from Asylum Studios in Salem.

Ohmigod! Did he say tattoo?

Yep. At 61, I’m getting some new ink. Amy decided she wanted a tat when she turned 50 and she got a nice one of a parrot from an ex-con in Belleville, Illinois.

I’ve been considering some new body art for a while now but never got around to making a decision or taking the step.

Now, with a certificate for $300 worth sitting in my wallet, I’ve got to make some decisions:

  • What design to get?
  • Where to put it? (And I get a lot of advice on where I can put things)
  • And when to have it done.

Suggestions are welcome. It will be motorcycle-related, so keep that in mind.
