He had several rows of skin. An all-day skin, tattooed with must-do and one for Sunday, on which he wrote "şşşşt". One for work with the boss' name in temporary tattoo and one for home painted with flowers. One of them which he wore to church and had invisible tattoos so that the spiritual father would not argue that he was defiling his body, one for parents with quotes from sages and one for grandparents with a Christ the Redeemer on the left, where the heart is. He had another special one for sex.
The only concern was to not mix them.
