That’s it. I’m getting a tattoo. After a long period of rumination, I have decided on this: Trope. (Thank you to my friend Daniel Farrell, who gave me this nickname.) It is Latin and will complete the word “Zoetrope” (translated as “life turning” or “life movement”): a 19th century form of animation technology. (I’m getting the word, not a picture of the device. That would be expensive and painful.)
1. What font should I use?
2. Where should I get it? I need a body part that a) will not wrinkle with age or reproductive activity, and b) moves.
