Tattooing for the recently deceased.

I am writing this sans new body art and I am pissed. After spending an afternoon at the tattoo shop, getting the design of my dreams drawn up, getting prepped, stencilled and totally buzzed, the whole thing came to a big fat nothing.
Because I have a pulse!!
Yes, you heard it right....Paul was unable to ink me because I have a strong arterial pulse close to the skin's surface and it creates too much movement for him to be able to work properly. Unlike Mick, who apparantly has been dead for six months, so was able to get his done with no problems.
I am SO disappointed, because the design I have had in my head for the past 4 years is not going to happen. Ever.
I'm going to have to look at other designs so that I can get inked somewhere where I'm slightly more dead than alive. i.e. pulseless. Is that even a word??
What stopped the afternoon sliding from crappy right into tragic was Paul's unintentional (I hope) statement of the facts.
" I'm really sorry, but this isn't going to work while you've got a pulse"
Rigor Mortis anyone???

Dang. I know you were really looking forward to that. BTW, I finally got around to's all I can think about anymore. I even went to the Stephanie Meyers website to read the first chapter of the 5th book. I just hope it doesn't take too long.
