You can just see a scar on the inside of my right foot. After an operation my foot doesn't look like it is mine so I am planning a tattoo of this lyric - although in a much prettier font! This is just a biro looking at a layout playing with separating the words.
Natural light, just fixed the levels in photoshop - the black ridge at the top was part of the raw shot.
...in myself for the first time in my life. And here's my memento to remind me anytime I falter
My girlfriend and I both got this today 2/2/2009 for our 1 year anniversary. We got it done at Octopus Ink in Tacoma Washington. She really did slap me so I kissed her and check us out we've made it a year and were still going strong!
Self portrait. The writing is from Exodus and Revelations, courtesy of a good friend of mine. It took roughly three hours of writing.
the last 7 words in james joyce's 'ulysses'. i've wanted this forever, and it'll probably turn into a larger piece. i think i'll probably have him fix up the S's a little bit so they're more connected. otherwise it's perfect! it's still red, i still have tape marks on my boobs, but it's only a little sore this morning. tattooing directly over the sternum HURTS. the collarbones do a little bit, too. oh, and as far as what it means to me: it's hard to explain, but it's one of those phrases that's stuck in my head since i read it. it's one of the most passionate statements ever written. it's very female. and if you know me, you know i'm not the least bit tentative about anything. i tend to know right away what i want and how i feel, and i'll jump without thinking twice. it kind of sums that up for me.
