A tattoo is a true poetic creation, and is always more than meets the eye. As a tattoo is grounded on living skin, so its essence emotes a poignancy unique to the mortal human condition. ~V. Vale and Andrea Juno, Modern Primitives
Tattoos fulfill a need to inscribe the self as an individual. ~ MARGO DEMELLO, Bodies of Inscription
A tattoo is an affirmation: that this body is yours to have and to enjoy while you’re here. Nobody else can control what you do with it. ~ DON ED HARDY, Douglas Kent Hall’s Prison Tattoos
My skin is my canvas. The artwork on it represents something that is very powerful and meaningful in my life. I look at my skin as something of a living diary because all my tattoos represent a time in my life. And I never wish to shut the door on the past, so I carry it all with me. ~ Dave Navarro
Doesn’t it just make you want to ink-up?!
Perhaps something fun to do on the long holiday weekend….xxx, c.
