This is one of those times (but not the only one) where I really wish self-loathing hadn't led me to periodically purge my journals (both online and years of bound notebooks and diaries mostly from my teens and 20's.) All the records I have left are contained in this current LJ, random saved ephemera, and the bits and pieces of memories in my head. *pout* but such is life, huh? :(

I *think* I've still got a book I crafted in Book Arts class in 1994 about my tattos up until then. Will look for it at home tonight. Will also create/organize a flickr.com or imagecave.com album of photos I have showing my tattoos.
