Sketches on my skin

Sketches on my skin
I have more than a few
all telling storys
powerfull meanings too

The feel of the needle
pinching my skin
the ink being infused
become portraits on my skin

Sketches on my skin
they are of a part of who I am
they will be with me until the very end

People always looked at me
the paintings they would stare
made me feel blue
made me fell bad

Then I began to notice
all the people like me
free to express
what makes we, we

Sketches on my skin
I love every one
and there is more room on my body
to get a few more done

Sketches on my skin
they are a part of I

Sketches on my skin
they are all mine

Infused in my skin
infused in my mind

    I love tatoos. I am an artist and it blows my mind the details that can be done.
    I have one draw that I want to get done but can't afford all the color I want.
    I like the poem Thanks for sharing (Report) Reply
