In memory of a father

Charles Cowling

Found this touching memorial to a dead Dad… It’s his actual hand print tattooed onto the son’s shoulder.

    Mea culpa (oops sorry, no more Latin.) ‘Twas me!
    That’s interesting Vale, as I thought of it as arm round shoulder/loving/support/presence/good sort of thing, but see where you’re coming from – there could be times when you might not appreciate your father being just over your shoulder 😉 Seriously, I understand that the hand can also be a restricting/controlling/domineering thing too, but figured you wouldn’t choose to have that tattooed on your shoulder?

    Not me Charles – mysterious! It actually made me feel a little uneasy. The hand on the shoulder isn’t always felt as a blessing…
