I am posting this poem because it was inspired by the work of my friend, Spider.
I met Spider back in 1992 and consider myself fortunate to have met such a trustworthy person in the tattooing business.
He recently relocated his shop to Belvidere, IL. If you’re interested in learning more, check out his website: http://www.spidertattooz.com/home.html
She Loved Him in a Tattoo
Bound for life to another man
Denying love some called taboo
She did the only thing she could think of
To prove this longing real and true
She immortalized her love in flesh
The design revealed a clue
To love him more than words conveyed
She loved him the only way she knew
She loved him in a tattoo
