A couple of days ago my wife asked me what tatoo I would get now that I am out. She wondered if I would get a tatoo of a LGBT emblem on my chest or elsewhere on my body. I was startled because I wasn't thinking about get a tatoo. My wife assumed that most gay people, as part of coming out, will publically proclaim their sexuality with some permanent ink. Since when did being gay mean you had a tatoo? True, I've seen some gay porn stars on video sporting tats, but lots of straight people have them too. My wife's question made me think. Now I'm wondering if I should celebrate my coming out by getting a tatoo. Have any of you, as part of coming out, had yourself inked? If so, what emblem did you opt for? Thanks!
