White - Tattoowise
I've always wanted a daisy tattoo on my toe because of a song I loved from an old Smothers Brothers album. "I've got a daisy on my toe. It is not real, it does not grow. It's just a tattoo of a flower, so I'll look neat taking a shower. It's on the second toe of my left foot. A stem and flower, but there's no root (because that wouldn't look good). A pretty daisy on my toe. My right foot loves my left foot so."

"Here's what I think, Mr. Wind-Up Bird," said May Kasahara. "Everybody's born with some different thing at the core of their existence. And that thing, whatever it is, becomes like a heat source that runs each person from the inside. I have one too, of course. Like everybody else. But sometimes it gets out of hand. It swells or shrinks inside me, and it shakes me up. What I'd really like to do is find a way to communicate that feeling to another person. But I can't seem to do it. They just don't get it. Of course, the problem could be that I'm not explaining it very well, but I think it's because they're not listening very well. They pretend to be listening, but they're not, really. So I get worked up sometimes, and I do some crazy things." — Haruki Murakami (The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle)

haha, this picture makes me laugh, there were about 15 punks outside the electric ballroom, and I went up and asked if I could take their photo! They look kinda intimidating, but they're softies really!
