The reason I have never gotten a tattoo
Is a hold-over
From my days as an actress.
To be a blank slate.
Inhabiting the skin of another on a whim
Without any brands to give me away.
Who’s to say who I am?
I could be anyone.
Never wanting to hold on to any one identity for too long.
Unsure of a statement about myself which could be definitive.
Still learning to be comfortable in a skin free of adornment.
Unwilling to part with my chameleon-like ways.
