While learning or improving your language skills in a foreign language, it is important to read a lot in that language. In this way your passive vocabulary will become bigger and you will learn useful expressions used by native speakers.

While doing it, it is a good idea to read books, magazines, articles on the Internet etc. about topics that you like and are important and appealing to you. So I read for example tattoo magazines, in English and in German, and today I stumbled upon a difficult and yet interesting question for tattooed people:

How many hours have you been tattooed so far?

My first reaction was...
Oh well. Gosh. So let me check. I guess... I would say about... No, maybe...
You got the picture. I had no idea. Not the the slightest idea.

I got my first tattoo almost twenty years ago, when being tattooed was not so common for a girl in my age, and since then I collected a lot of questions about tattoos. But in the end they are almost always the same and people usually ask me how many tattoos I have, which one was the most painful one, which one is my favourite one.

So far anybody asked about how many hours I spent while being tattooed. And yet it makes sense and it is actually a very good question, because having a lot of small tattoos and having for example both sleeves and the full back tattooed are very different stories, in my opinion, so knowing how many hours people spent in a tattoo parlour so far is way more explanatory than how many tattoos people have.

So Zombie Boy, how many hours have you been tattooed so far?!]

What about you?
How many hours have you been tattooed so far?
Did anybody ask you this question before?

This may never start. We could fall apart. And I'd be your memory. Lost your sense of fear.  Feelings insincere. Can I be your memory? So get back, back, back to where we lasted. Just like I imagine. I could never feel this way. So get back, b...
