„Ever thought of getting one?“
Starsky's question echoed in his mind and he remembered his answer.
„I don't see any reason for self-mutilation.“
But it got him thinking and the more he thought about it, the more he had to
rethink his answer.
It wasn't self-mutilation and he had to admit having been wrong.
A tattoo held a special meaning for the one wearing it and as Hutch sat there in the chair a few years later and the whirring noise of the little machine started, he thought about the meaning of the one he'd chosen for himself.
notes: The little machine tattoo artists use to put ink under your skin is also called a tattoo gun
