According to Aetius, a physician of some second-century repute, the ancients had their own receipt for it: as if preparing for their funerals they would take some corroded bronze previously attacked by vinegar and grind it solemnly with vitriol and just a touch of predictable gall before they applied it with needles to the relative permanence of the dermis.
And now, at both ends of the M62 there are reports of the stricken natives taking this rite of the hot scratch some way closer to their raw grief by asking their artists to grind the course ashes of their beloved with a suitably black ink and to bury this finer dust through repeated puncture wounds in the form of words which go down deep into their sore and grieving flesh: Just like me / They long to be / Close to you.
Writing on behalf of Ken Ken Ramen @ 3378 18th Street.

Ken Ken Ramen is a locally owned, Japanese restaurant located at 3378 18th Street , San Francisco focused on making quality Japanese Ramen since 2011. We have plans to open a small Japanese Bento Cafe, associated private gathering space and industrial commissary named Suika @ 3376 18th Street offering healthy Japanese snacks and options and are awaiting for zoning and appropriate approvals.
We are run by Mission residents and employ local residents as well. Currently the building is zoned under Urban Mixed Use and allows for a variety of business types ranging from industrial to commercial to service based business such as restaurants with the appropriate change of use application.
We invite you to read the zoning definitions of the planning department @ http://bit.ly/kvYllp We plan to renovate the current space @ 3376 into 3 parts. A front serving retail cafe, a private gathering space, and an industrial commissary. The small gathering space for private parties, poetry readings, live performances, desk concerts, art events, performances and group meetings at 3376 18th Street. The small intimate space is designed to encourage group activities, art meetings, and social interactions for residents in the community.

The commissary currently supports a variety of food based businesses including

“Which is hard, because skateboarders are, at our core, assholes. All of us. Skateboarding is assholes running through a city, treating it like the playground it is instead of the money factory the men and women in ties and sweater sets want it to be. Skateboarding is blood and filth and beer and laughter, maybe a nut-slap when one asshole catches another off guard. It’s about shinners and swelbows and sketchy landings that prove how badly you want it. And finally, it’s about cheering madly for a friend who lands a trick even if that trick is easy for you.”—Kyle Beachy - Skateboarder / Author
