Where is your favorite place to be?
In good company. Intelligent conversation is my jam. I could educate and learn on just about any topic that peaks some form of creativity in me. Usually anything to do with the ocean or organizing my bedroom. One is usually managable in a day, the other a terror if not taken care of for a lifetime.
If you had a superpower what would it be?
To be able to think of a place or time and go there. Take a partner with me. Basically Dr. Who, in all there forms & experiences. See, feel, appreciate things as they became a part of the world & the struggle these types of experiences can teach us about ourselves. I know, butterfly effect and all. I’d be like Jane Goodall in the judge. Observing and falling in love with the heart & intentions of the majority of us throughout history. Imagine the people we will never know about from our past because history is easy to replace without folkloric music, art, invention, and natural disaster. Digging is important but must be done with compassion and an eagerness to learn.
Favorite movie, Then and now?
Then (circa 1980’s): Dumbo. I lost my mom, not like Dumbo. I had my own kind of metal door.
Now (circa 2000’s): Inside Out. I watch it more it seems when I have a challenge coming.
How many tattoos do you have?
54. I have sat for more than that to have them all completed and many more that need work or covered up all together. No regrets.
How much did you pay for them?
Very little. Not because they didn’t all deserve to be paid well — they set the price. I always tipped double what it I paid. 4 didn’t take and had to be reworked and will need to be reworked again.
Why aren’t they all outlined?
I have always dreamed of the days I would get a tattoo and it wouldn’t be conventional. As a child — as soon as I felt the relief of what a drawing could look like when you stayed between the lines, I was ruined. It took me years of appreciating where the artist mindset was when they created their piece. I felt unmasking the artist and the pieces purpose gave me an understanding I didn’t feel when looking at it like everyone else, standing in a room and the small talk. This is my interpretation of taking away those boundaries within ourselves to still create something so delicate and beautiful as art on the human body. Fragility I guess you can call it.
