My Tattoo Story
I’m all about balance in life – good bad, light dark, yin yang. Both are needed and both need each other. When I saw this from a Maori artist I thought it a perfect example of something which transcends and echoes through different cultures and beliefs.
When and Where
Saw the original design in Auckland when I was over in ’98 but waited a year before having it done when I next went back. My partner at the time insisted that if I was serious I could wait a year.. just to be sure. And I was, so I did .
Three hours (the last hour’s the killer) but well worth it – $300 NZ in a place called Dermagraphic in down-town Auckland near K Street. Cool place and nice guys.
Researching and designing an organic, fluid Tree of Life for the other shoulder. I’ll get there some day….top
