After prancing around Brentwood in her bright dress, we step indoors with Kris Ekmard. Right away, she reveals all her tattoos. I liked LOTR, but I probably wouldn't get any of its characters tattooed on my body. But then again, I find it really fantastic that Kris is so passionate about certain things that she chooses to permanently commemorate them onto her skin. It makes me think about how strong each of our emotions can be and how brave it is to place ourselves in the vulnerable position of being criticized. And that brings me a couple of important conclusions: 1) Tattoos are not permanent because we are not permanent. 2) Very few people are as badass as Kris.
