Day 183: St. George of the Subway

Wreathed in vibrant ink
The old man's arms tell stories
Of dragons and skulls

I often wonder how elderly people feel about the tattoos that seemed so timeless and bad-ass when they were 19. This man was well into his 70s, but his saggy, spindly arms were covered in the full sleeve tattoos of a young heavy metal roadie. And you know what? It made him look pretty bad-ass.
