My favorite tattoo and the story behind it
My favorite tattoo is my zombie tattoo on my leg that was taken from the back cover of issue #28 of The Walking Dead by the impeccable Cliff Rathburn. It all started when I went back to new haven for a visit. I was staying at my friend Laguna's grandparents house in the basement. Laguna is an amazing tattoo artist and we were both bored and decided at midnight to get started on this fuckin' beast. So we popped on Shawn of the dead and eventually two other movies and away we went. 8hrs later we had a beautiful finished piece that I fuckin' love.
My first tattoo and the story behind it
I got my first tattoo in a small dive tattoo shop on the corner of Normandie and 59th in Los Angeles. It was called For Life Tattoos and I had to patiently wait my turn while the gang members in front of me got their laugh now, cry later tattoos. It was fuckin' rad/interesting. Shadow did a piece on me that's an angel split between good and evil with the words For those who helped build my wings that helped me soar, Para mi familia, para mi vida. *Side note, I'd been hanging out with puerto rican gangsters for a good part of my teenage years and because of that I thought I was a gangster too. Yes people if it wasn't blatantly obvious before, than it certainly is now, I'm a fuckin' idiot. Regardless of my warped brain, I wouldn't change it for a thing, it's a great fuckin' story.
My next tattoo
I have so many in the works, but the two that I am most excited about are based on a few of my favorite comic book characters. I love a good anti hero and no man is greater than my love John-motha fuckin'-Constantine. I want to do a sleeve revolving around john constantine with a guest appearance by the swamp thing. However it's a toss up between that and another sleeve dedicated to my beloved batman and all the villains that are equally as brilliant. It'll center on Arkham Asylum and all the villains that we know and love escaping while batman sits perched on top looking over the engulfing madness. Oh what to choose, what to choose? But until I have the fuckin' cash to pull either one of those radtastic pieces off it's kinda a moot point.
