The One

Vaihteeksi taas englanninkielinen raapale eli tasan 100 sanan novelli.

The One

“Let me guess, a Yahweh tat that needs to be altered?” asks the tattoo artist, examining his fingernails.

“Actually no,” the customer replies, blushing. “I have a Buddha on my butt, but we had a bit of a …rough patch. Now I’d like him altered into a Krishna. You think that can be done?”

She loosens her jeans to show.

“Young people,” he mutters. “Wouldn’t it be easier to just, you know, wait a bit before rushing out to get inked? Or even skip deity tattoos altogether.”

She sighs.

“Maybe you’re right, but I really thought he was the one.”

(Tämän raapaleen inspiroi pari viikkoa sitten Twitterissä käyty keskustelu. Jokin hollantilainen kirkon tunnus twiittasi, että uskontotatuoinnit ovat nyt kovassa huudossa ja eräs uskovainen retwiittasi sen kommentilla “Minä en uskaltaisi/kehtaisi!” Näin tämän skenen heti päässäni.)
