A Single Man and Tattoos


I know, I know, old news right? There is a story (albeit a stupid one) behind my posting though honest. I am getting my very first tattoo later today and wanted to do a kind of related post but the majority of tattoo/fashion images are a little bit porny for me. But then I suddenly remembered that the lovely Aline Weber, lovely model lady, has a rather beautiful tattoo which you can see here.

I then remembered she played Nicholas Hoult's lady friend in A Single Man, Tom Ford's very fashionable film. So yeah, that's how I got round to posting about A Single Man!

It is an incredibly beautiful film, but who would expect anything less from Tom Ford? All of the characters are intrinsically messed up but impeccably dressed, I really want to grow up to be Julianne Moore's character, only slightly less depressed...

I thoroughly suggest you all watch it, hopefully in better circumstances than I did, which was at 2am on a plane...

But yes, this is a round about way of me saying, I'm getting a tattoo, yay! If you're interested, I'm getting the Sigur Ros brackets logo which you can see here, except they will be solid black lines. I'm getting this because it combines my love of Sigur Ros and punctuation. Sorry for coming across a little bit mental in this post, I'm a bit excited... Wish me luck!
