Last February, I saw that tattoo design on the artist’s Facebook page, and after quickly conversing with her, I grab an appointment to get this inked a few days later.
As she was drawing this design into my skin, I slowly realized that this design, that I liked at first glance, suddenly came to take more signification in my mind.
The arrow pointing to the upper part of my body, to my head…
The green, my favorite color…
The compass rose, which represents my Pirate side of me…
The navigation star, there to guide me while I was lost in the sea of depression and utter nothingness for the last year…
My intuition was “spot on” when I selected this design!
Can you tell I love it?
Perusing through a pile of old Playboy a friend collects, he showed me this, knowing my sphere of interests in history. I always said it: I read Playboy for their articles!

And another interesting article from Christian Heilmann, on the current bad status of the Web Development work field, where most experienced developers are exhausted, tired to fight against a philosophy of “shipping fast, deliver now, quality later”, and also…because of tech privilege!
No, I am not against innovating and I’d be the last to pretend that the web stack is perfect. But I am also tired of seeing talented developers being burned out. We have a 1–2 year average retention span of developers in companies. This is not sustainable. This is not how we can have a career. This is not how we can become more diverse. The ugly brogrammer is only in part our own biases and faults. It is a result of an unhealthy work environment based on “release fast and break things”. We broke a lot. Let’s try to fix it by fixing what people use, not telling them what they should be using.
