100 Words #18

After a four day break for Latitude Festival, I continue my 100 Words for 100 Days series of scenes with Day #18. This scene is inspired by the some of worst tattoos spotted at Latitude this year.

Shank swigged his beer. “You gotta see my awesome new tat, bro.” he drawled.

Shank put down his beer. “It’s like this cool sun beaming out cosmic love rays, bro.”

“Cool, let’s see it then.”

“It’s on me back.” Shank grabbed his t-shirt and pulled it over his head. His pale white shoulders flashed in the sun. He turned his back to Cam. “Look man, that’s awesome right?”

“Dude, that’s the RSS symbol.” laughed Cam.

Shank’s face fell.

“Crap.”
