Myself, in a sentence
I am 35% morbid, 50% sarcastic, and 15% obscene. Don't worry, though. I'm 100% charming.
My favorite tattoo and the story behind it
It really is hard to pick a favorite tattoo. My back piece was designed and done by Amy James on an episode of Miami Ink for my wedding. It was such a great experience, and Ami is such a funny guy that despite the eventual collapse of my marriage, the tattoo still holds a lot of great memories for me. Another is a heart and crossbones I share with a dear friend of mine who has the same tattoo on his hip. He's gone through several deployments to Iraq, and we got the matching tattoos so that no matter where he was or what was happening, he always knew someone out there cared for him and wanted him to come home. The phoenix on my side was a tattoo I got as a form of rebirth, rising from the ashes of my old life to be a better, more amazing person. To my surprise, I discovered that the reminder of this tattoo encourages me to continue evolving. Rebirth isn't just a one-time deal, it happens over and over, just like the phoenix does.
My first tattoo and the story behind it
My first tattoo was a tramp stamp in hebrew. I love it because living in the midwest, I get asked a lot what it means, to which I always give jackass answers to, such as "25 cents a ride", "exit only", "beeps when backing" and "wide load" among others. The real meaning behind it? Well, a lady never kisses and tells, does she?
My next tattoo
I have my entire body planned out, but my next tattoo would be to add flames to my phoenix and have a trail of fire setting my other two tattoos on fire, and a hidden message worked into the rising smoke across my back. After that, I want to start on my sleeve which will be a heavenly scene in blues with an angel surrounded by stars. I'll tie this in with the phoenix with her shedding feathers catching on fire and falling as ash. Then down my left leg I plan on having a hellish scene with the four horsemen of the apocalypse, with me riding as Death.
