No lol. Although something the psychopath said in the other article stuck with me. I'll have to hold onto it for a few months and see if I still think it's a great idea then. Besides, you'd see any new tats on #instaink if I got 'em.

This quote

    Sometimes the truth is not just that it hurts, but that it's just so disappointing. You want to believe in romance and have romance in your lifeā€”even the most hardcore, cold intellectual wants the romantic notion. It kind of makes life worth living.

The tattoo idea: just the phrase "the romantic notion"

That's interesting. Where would it be?

I'd put it on my chest, near to my heart, in a half-circle shape, I'm thinking. I like the idea, and I like it especially because it is said by someone who is mostly divorced from emotion. I am not a romantic person but I find sometimes I want to buy into, as he puts it, "the romantic notion." It's like, I fall for it - then it happens and I realize it's not really me at all.* So I can relate to that, although I wouldn't call myself "the most hardcore, cold intellectual." - Maybe if I am lucky, someday ;)

*Or rather, it is probably more likely that the traditional romantic notion is not what I want. I have my own form of romance, I'm sure.

I guess the point is, I grapple with romance. It doesn't make sense to me and a lot of it is, well...haha "gross." But yes, some parts of me still want it sometimes.

The whole quote resonates with me quite a lot.
