What did you do in lockdown? Make banana bread? Do yoga? What if you decided to try your hand at homemade tattoos?I have a little tattoo of a cross on my right hip. It is horrible. It is small and fat, like someone made a cross out of clay then squashed it. It leans to the right for no particular reason, like a terrible tribute to the tower of Pisa. I am very fond of it, because the story behind it is incredibly stupid.I was 18 and cool-adjacent â€“ just about enough of my acquaintances were cool that I could hang out in â€œcoolâ€ social circles, but deep down I knew I was only cool by association, which pained me greatly. My housemate and I had been invited to a squat party in south London by this woman, Cat, who was definitely cool.
