I have a few. And I'll have a few more in the coming weeks.

The first tattoo I ever got was a love heart on my pinky finger. I got it from a biker tattoo shop when I turned 18. Later, I got my heart broke and had a year or so of mutilating myself. I cut the tattoo right off my pinky finger one day. Just another of the stupid things I have done in my short time here. You can still see traces of ink through the thick scar on my finger.

My second tattoo, idiotically, was the name of a girlfriend. It now sits under three big-ass roses on my chest.

my next tattoo was a rose with my mother's name in a banner. It's on the inside of my left arm. I got the outline done because I had limited funds. When i went back to get it shaded the artist had moved to Melbourne, so I never ended up getting it done. But a mate of mine just started an apprenticeship a few months ago, so i'm gonna let him shade it for me this week.

next up is my most recent tattoo, my tribute to tattoos. it's on the inside of my right leg and it's still healing.

I'm booked in for this thursday, but other than getting my mum's rose shaded, i'm not sure what else i'm gonna get. I've got a few ideas, so we'll just see what happens. It's only skin, right?

And then in two weeks i'm getting a Bob Dylan portrait on my upper left arm. Here's the photo.

I plan on having traditional work mixed with realistic portraits all black and grey. And I plan on being covered by Christmas. I think I'm gonna get a portrait of Bukowski on my forearm, but I'm trying to look for a good photo.

Well, that's me done. Now show me your tattoos.
