To connect with the world he decides to have a lily tattooed on his back, not because everyone else is getting one, but rather to encapsulate his ideal self. And the tattooist chosen to do it has made his best creation.

By the author of Aphrodite’s Cold and Road Block and availavle at Amazon and Kobo.Opening ExtractOn the back of a man is a tattoo of a flower so enchanting that all who might get to see it would truly be spellbound. The flower is a Lilium Regale, its petals pearl white and maroon tinted- its long stem a deep animate green- its decorative stamens, proud and aloof. The stem follows his spine, and the crown leans over his left shoulder blade.

A truly remarkable tattoo- and surely the most beautiful in the world. But none will ever see it.The man, the bearer of the tattoo, will not see it adorned on his flesh. His flesh that was someone else’s for a time. When the tattooist first saw the man’s form he knew he could do the lily the man wanted. His hardy back will remain strong in the man’s older years. The delicate pigments needed for the lily’s vivid expression won’t migrate deeper into his sub skin.

It is as vivid and as vibrant as any wild lilium, and it will live strong for the time of this man’s natural life. This lily is the proud tattooist’s greatest work.The tattooed man has had little sense of the ‘other’ outside of himself- an orphan only, he is a man who is extrinsically cold, a man who is nigh disconnected from his past.

This is of no matter to him, because he draws his strength from his mystical lily, his moko, his talisman- and though he is a believer the lily is the greater inspiration for his faith. It is a flower in nature that once meant nothing to him, and now it means absolutely everything.Like the Yakuza the man is discreet with his tattoo.

He is never seen on the beach with his shirt off and he is fortunate that his humid society applies no pressure on him to remove his heavy clothing in public. Sweat that which fortuitously cools. He is a man free to never expose his back on festival occasions called for. He will swelter in fur.

He knows the whereabouts of all cool shade. He knows when and where buildings cast their black screens upon the ground. Lucky is the unoppressed man, free and stoically clothed beneath the rancorous sunshine.
