I have carved into my skin...

tattoo of an eagle covering a chest

Well, tattoos for me go beyond simply ink on skin.

A tattoo is the birthmark that life forgot to stamp on my skin.

A tattoo is the painting I decided not to hang on the wall but rather to print on my skin, so that anybody wherever I go might come to see it.

I always say: I have carved into my skin what I have lived.

All my tattoos have their meanings, they have a story, a purpose, nothing was random.

Through my tattoos I express the message, the stories I carry with me.

And I still have a lot of story to carve, to print on my skin.
