Licking tatts...

I often get other writers emailing me asking me to describe how touching or licking a tattoo feels. I have tatts. I like them a lot. But I have no idea why people think your skin is more sensitive because of them. Yes, straight after it’s done and for about a week afterwards it feels like gravel rash – and I guess if the artist did a crap job he could damage your skin for life. But more sensitive to a lover’s touch? No. That's hype invented by romance writers. Licking a tatt? Touching a tatt? Go for it but it’s no G spot and I’d hate to think anyone would get one inked on them thinking it was. Don’t believe what you read.
