Getting the name of your girlfriend or boyfriend tatted on your body can be tricky. What happens if you break up? There are even some people who have a superstition about it who believe that the minute you get a name in ink, the relationship is bound to end.
I don’t know. At least you’ll have that memory of a time when you loved someone so much that you wanted to show the world. Literally. No matter how things ended, that’s gotta count for something, right? Heh, listen to me. If I got a tat of my ex-wife’s name, that shit would be covered with a giant demon skull or something.
Reading, PA, here I come! I’ll be up at Super Show this weekend with a whole mess of other cartoonists including Danielle Corsetto, Dani O’Brien and Bill Ellis, and Ross Nover. Whenever you see Ross, you should go up to him and give a fist bump while saying “BABOOM.” It’s his new catch phrase which he loves.
If you’re in the area, I see you there! And if not, then maybe I’ll see you later this month. In Chicago. OH YEAH!
At least it's a short name.
Tara and Willem face off.
Willem had fiery hair and a temper to match. A right fierce competitor, that one.

Rivalry turned into friendship turned into, well…
Tara and Willem stand on a hotel balcony.
Things moved pretty fast. Training together. Driving out to competitions. Staying in hotels in different cities.

Our relationship was fairly competitive. So, of course, I went a little, erm, daft.
