Also, on the topic of first tattoos... I've always loved ink and wanted one right when I turned 18, which is when I got the shitty first version of my left shoulder piece. I rushed into it and paid for it with a crap tattoo. Now I get them at a fast pace because I found an artist I trust who I'm friends with outside of our sessions who helps me out by letting me pay as I can afford it. I see them as an art form, and usually don't get them to have deep meaning, so I don't invest much time into the concepts aside from the vague ideas in my head and we toss around ideas and create as we go. Anyways, to anyone who wants their first tattoo: take the time to find a shop and artist whose work you like and who you can trust, it's worth it. Robin's the only person I let tattoo me now and he tweaked my left shoulder piece line for line so only his work is on me, and if I ever lose touch with him then that'll be when I stop getting tattoos. Being heavily inked becomes a matter of dedication for the artist and his 'canvas', and I mean c'mon... it's permanent so take it seriously.
I'm not the Devil. I'm much, much older. I watched the Beginning and I will see the End. I am the dark behind the stars. I am the dark inside you all. (Event Horizon)
