2. So obviously this is an interview regarding tattoos, let's talk about your art and why it is important to you.
Each tattoo is from a point in my life and tells a story about who I am.
3. What made you want to get a tattoo? And how many people told you not to do it? And did it make you think twice?
Everyone told me I'd regret it. I love the aesthetic and it never made me think twice.
5. What was your first piece? how did you pick it out and was it done professionally(where) or underground? (where)
It was a clock. I wanted it to remind how short life is. I had it done professionally.
6.were you scared about the pain or the consequences more? Neither. I live fearlessly.
7. How has your art hurt or helped your career or has it hindered anything that made you wish you didn’t have it? It just helps me fit the part in all of my jobs.
8. Are you about a story with your pieces or are you just into cool art? In other words, does your skin tell a story
Every single tattoo has a story about my life.
