I hate it when I want to incorporate something into my story, I totally mean to do it, but then I forget. Sure, I can go back and add it in the multitude of edits I make, but still, it pisses me off anyway.
So something I mean to do to help contrast the characters of James and Garrett a little more is to make the latter tattooed. See, James is fairly traditional and conservative whereas Garrett is more worldly and progressive.
I decided in the course of chapter 6, which I finished this morning, that Garrett has the following tattoos: one on each shoulder/upper arm, one on his chest, a large one across his upper back and another on his right calf. The one on his back is described as an owl clutching a scroll. I haven't described the others yet.
So, knowing that Garrett is a tall, fit redhead poli sci PhD student who is very assertive, charismatic, open about his sexuality and an extraordinarily talented singer/actor/pianist, what do you think his other tattoos should be?
Do you have tattoos and how do they reflect your personality?
