I wear my inspiration on my body, in my tattoos. They are more than ink stained skin: they are reminders of events, emotions, symbols of things that have inspired me and continue to every time I absentmindedly look down on my arm or leg. My tattoos immortalize moments that changed my thinking and represent moments yet to come. It's not like I can forget these moments because they are inherent to who I am today. There is not a tattoo I regret. Inspiring people who push their artistic boundaries make me want to do the same; they aren't afraid of making mistakes or looking like fools. They live life out loud and dare you to take it or leave it. I live for the moment that I figure out how to do something in a different way, but in a way that produces something I never thought it would - it’s that "aha" moment! And I live for the moment where I, in turn, will inspire someone else. Who knows what's to come, but as long as I have vacant areas of skin, I will continue to get my inspirations recorded on my body and to attempt to dream and live out loud.
