At Slave to the Needle in ballard, it works out well as I have to stop in Magnolia to feed my parents cats while they're out of town that day anyway.

You're getting a black square? Well, I've always liked minimalism.

It means a lot to me. It's a dadaist painting I saw at the Pompidou in Paris. I had been to the Louvre, The Orsay Museum, The Picasso, Monet and Rodin muesum, etc etc etc. I had seen all this amazing art, beautiful. Then when I saw this painting, so simple. Black and white, simple shape, line and color, minimal, I just loved it. I went back and looked at it like five times beofre I left. I love it. It's a tribute to my trip to pairs and love of modern art that blossomed there. :)

Ah, yes, I see. Well, I too appreciate minimalism; and I'm glad you're taking the plunge into what's surely the presently-tiny world of fine-art tattoos. (How about something like da Vinci's "The Last Supper"? Just kidding!)

What your soon-to-be tattoo reminds me of is the "Red Square" painting by Kasimir Malevich (1878-1935). You can read a bit about Malevich's work at WebMuseum: Malevich, Kasimir: Suprematist Compositions.

Kasimir Malevich, "Red Square: Painterly Realism of a Peasant Woman in Two Dimensions"; 1915; Oil on canvas, 53 x 53 cm (20 7/8 x 20 7/8 in); State Russian Museum, St. Petersburg

Actually, I think that is who this painting is by. I could never remember his name but I know he had a whole series of stuff like the red and black box. I also saw one of his at MoMA with a black and a red square. fancy fancy. It's all coming together now (i'd post a pic but it's on my computer at home)

I'm starting a new trend Mr. Cat modern minimalist art tattoos. :)
