Why I'm Suddenly Longing To Get Inked In Midlife

Why am I even thinking about a tattoo for the first time, at the age of 53, with grown children and aging parents and memberships to three synagogues on Manhattan's Upper West Side? Why do I keep on asking myself what sign, what image, which words, what message I would want marked on my body? Is this a sign of mid-life crisis? Is it a diversion from more important matters?

Clearly, I don't like tattoos. But disapproval aside, hearing the news of my daughter's tattoo made me feel...sad.
