InkPosted: June 12, 2011
I love tattoos. I may be an addict. I need Ink Anonymous!
Time to reflect and work with the tattoo artist who has done my back for the last 10 years.
Finishing up what the Maoris call “where we came from.”
These are the inks we put on our backs. The tats on our backs represent the past.
The past is my teacher, my hopes past, my family, my past loves, where I came from and honoring the lives.
Nothing I do is whimsy when it comes to tats. They all mean something to me. Not just decoration.

Tattooed Love Boys 1981
I ran twenty doors, Around the house, black and blue Between love boys Tore my knees up getting tattooed Cause I needed, to find out what the thing was for Been reading, a man time came to explore. I went apewire Cause I thought, like I like it Little tease, but I didn't mean it But you mess with the goods doll, you gotta pay. A good time was guaranteed for one and all With tattoos, target practice in the hall While waiting for their number to get called While I, I, I found what the wait was about. I was a good time Yeah, I got pretty good Changing tires, upstairs bro. I shot my mouth off and he showed me what that hole was for. Now I see you, all impressed and half-undressed, You got paint stick, all over the scars, lumps and bumps Tattooed love boys got you where I used to lay But ha ha, too bad You know what they say. Stop sniffling You're gonna make some plastic surgeon a rich man Oh, but the prestige and the glory Another human interest story You are that.
