A tattoo that I got done about 5 or 6 months ago, I think. It's just a little dedication to Rastafarian culture & the roots music scene down here in Hawaii. Inside the hands of Unity is the island of Oahu. A few people asked why I didn't put the whole island chain of Hawaii. I just put the island of Oahu because that's where I'm from specifically. People say, "Hooo, so MOKE now.." Not really. It's just something I wanted for myself. I.R.I.E. = I Respect I Eternally; which refers to the positive emotions that I want to live by every single day. Everything is good.

Three random tattoo ideas
Cherry: i have shown you guys my first tattoo which is the one on my foot
this is the second one since i love cherries <3
The black ink's still bleeding out so the red isn't as vibrant in this picture as it should be—once everything's scabbed over and healed, though, it should be perfect.
As a friend put it, I'm 'in transition'. The last few months (hell, the last few years
) have been pretty difficult for me, and even though I've wanted so often to give up, I stuck it out. I feel like, right now, I still have a long way to go before I'm 'whole', but I'm starting to accept who I am—flaws and all. The significance behind this tattoo is twofold; firstly, it symbolises the side of me that's 'broken' or 'imperfect', the side of me that, as much as I might hate it at times, is just as integral a part of me as a wing is of a bird. The second reason I got this particular tattoo is because it was (or still is, I'm not too sure) the logo of the band The Icarus Line. It might sound cheesy or cliché, but this band's music has meant so much to me this past year. Maybe it's not the music I turn to when I'm at my lowest (Nine Inch Nails' Still
is the record I put on when I want to cry myself to sleep, in case anyone's wondering) but it has certainly been the soundtrack to my life of late. I not only feel like I can relate to the music itself and the ethos behind it, but whenever I listen to these guys I always feel like maybe it's okay to not be 'normal'. Like maybe I can take everything dysfunctional in my life and twist it into something beautiful—much like this tattoo.
Joe Cardamone's explanation on the name 'The Icarus Line':
Icarus is a person in a Greek myth. Is there a relationship between the myth and the band name?
'There are two ways on this one. In Los Angeles, in the Hollywood area there is this boulevard. Here in Holland you walk by and you see these whores. There, in our red light district we've got these non-chick chicks. Probably the most famous one, his nickname is Icarus. Apparently his services are so good that there is always a line. That's The Icarus Line. The second one is that The Icarus Line is the breaking point, that certain time in life when everything is hard. That is more about the Icarus in the myth. When he tried to reach the sun the wax he made his wings of started to melt. So in that's another explanation of the name: trying to reach a point you can't reach.'
I loved my eye makeup that day
