as a man with no tattoos – never finding anything I’d want to be buried with me, this is perhaps the closest and one i would consider engraving upon my flesh.

^As a man with no tattoos,^

^As a man with no tattoos, never finding anything i felt worth being buried or burned up with (that is my own personal criteria for tattoos on myself only), this is perhaps the closest phrase worth engraving upon my flesh. The dangers of gossip, the untrustworthiness of our eyes and memories (10 people see an incident, you get 20 different opinions as to what they're certain they saw — all colored by their prejudices and assumptions) – plus the message behind this phrase: To Think for Yourself – really make this quite appealing to me. And to know, now, for sure, that this was from Poe, one of my personal heroes, just adds to its power and authority for me.^
