Does Kurt's tail indicate his moods?

We all know Kurt's tail is very strong and prehensile, with a neat little fork-spade at the end. He can use his tail as easily as his hands. But does Kurt's tail ever indicate his mood, like some additional subtle body language?

It all depends on how well he's drawn. I've seen him drawn all tense or upset with his tail in a spiral curl, sometimes around his leg, sometimes in the air. Biding his time waiting for something, the tail may be drawn swaying. But it really depends on the artist and the attention they care to pay to detail.

Like Angelique said, it depends on the artist, but yes it has been used by some to indicate his mood.

It was also implied back in Dave's era to be sensitive.
