Two felt tip tattoos, one on each forearm, spreading down to the hands and the fingers in red and green. One a rat, one an “Indian pattern.” (No idea where that came from, but not India.) I’ve scrubbed and scrubbed at them and they won’t budge, like a stubborn club stamp on a Sunday night.

“We really need to try and get rid of the tattoos,” I said, “I’m not sending you to school looking like that.”

“I’ve got an idea.”

“Go on…”

“Just don’t send me to school.”

  1. Strangely enough, I’ve just been tattoing my own arm for a review for Screen150 (

    (The picture – – may not make much sense unless you know that it’s a review of 127 Hours which features a man chopping his arm off after suffering Scooby Doo hallucinations.)

      …it’s very applicable then. It’s a talking point. Get it done. I once met a bloke who had question mark tattoos. He kept saying “People always ask me why I have question marks tattooed on me. That’s exactly the point though. Why?” The conversation didn’t last too long. Unlike this comment. I might be having Scooby Doo hallucinations soon. Or worst still, ones about the gruesome hanging skeleton that comes with the Scooby Doo Pirate Castle Playset. It’s a toy. Good thing the protagonist of 127 hours hasn’t ever come across it.
