Tatoo X Two


Tatoo

The topic of tatoo is a rare find since it has two meanings.

Tatoo:
Mark (the skin) in patterns by pricking it and putting in colors.

Tatoo:
A signal on a drum or bugle calling soldiers or sailors to their quarters at night.

I am sure, if you were trying to learn the language this might create some confusion. But, Hey! you only had to learn one word.

I tried to include both in this painting and it makes a pretty good period tatoo.

Make of it, What you will.
