Since I was 12 years old I knew I wanted to get a tattoo and got my first one at 15 on Khaosan Road here in Bangkok. That first tattoo is long gone thanks to familial pressures but I’ve well made up for it over the years. I had a short lived apprenticeship in the late 90’s but ended up giving my equipment away to help someone out. When we pass, so will the tattoos and I like that they will age, fade and eventually return to the earth.
