As a graduate student, you tend to over think things. I got this tattoo because it’s really nerdy, it’s useful, it’s funny, and it reminds me that some things in life are best enjoyed without thinking. I got the piece done by Liana who was working at Living Canvas Tattoo in Tempe, Arizona at the time. She was a pleasure to work with and the people at Living Canvas were equally inviting. So, I present to you, the Rule of Thumb tattoo.
