If you’ve ever seen a jumping cow, then you’ve been in the right place at the right time. It’s quite a spectacle to see a big, meaty rectangle defying gravity. This tattoo on my left forearm of a young jumping bull reminds me to embody spontaneous joy. It was graciously inked by Noel’le Longhaul of Charon Art in Turners Falls.
