My other Neil Gaiman tattoo.  I remember laying in a really small bed with my then boyfriend reading Smoke & Mirrors’ “Troll Bridge” and reading this line.  I swear my heart stopped, it is the single most perfectly bitter sweet line in any story that I have ever read and I’ve read A LOT.
It says “I fell for her like a suicide from a bridge” and it is in War Letter font (sounds just like what it is, this font makes me gush, those ink and blood splatters around the letters actually make me kinda turned on) and the tattoo is written in reverse, so I can read it when I look in a mirror.

It’s that last sentence that made me happiest…

This is Burton Olivier’s back. He’s the person who wrote to me and asked if I’d write a comic for his back… and I said yes, if it could also do some good for the CBLDF. And then I asked who he’d want to draw it, and he said, David Mack. So I asked David, who also said yes.
I wrote a poem about words written to be tattooed…

I met the owner of this tattoo last night, at Kickstarter’s third birthday party. She was really nice, and only showed me the tattoo when Amanda asked to see it (I was much too shy). 
She asked how I felt about people with tattoos of my words on them, and I told her I felt honoured.
And afterward, I thought, yes. That really is how I feel: not proud, just that it is an honour to have given people something they felt was important enough to place permanently on their skin.

This is my fifth tattoo, second literary. It’s a quote from Neil Gaiman’s American Gods that reminds me to always believe in something, to have wonder, and be open to magic. It’s the beginning of a long and brilliant soliloquy by Girl Sam.
