Tattoo of the Week
Featured Alex Scott
Who are you?
25 years young
How many tattoos do you have?
Which one is your favorite?
They are all my favorite! but they one I pay most attention to right now is the most recent one. “Readymade”
When and where did you get it?
March or this year in SF. It’s under my left boobie
What does it mean to you?
It was an ending and beginning point marker. I got dumped by someone I was in love w/. Readymade was a nickname they gave me and the day I saw my ex with someone else I went into the shop, told the tattoo artist what happened. I did because even though we didn’t work out I was still in a place way better than where I was before he came along. He told me that all he wanted to do was leave me in a better condition than he found me in. And in the greater scope of my life, he really did, I never wanted to forget that and I never wanted my love for him to evanesce, because it made me so happy. Kinda makes me sound like a living room I guess, but that is the shortest explanation I can give.
How old were you when you got your first tattoo?
Why should we feature your tattoo?
Because it is a beautiful depiction of a word that is not in any dictionary.
Do you have a particular tattoo artist you go to?
Taler Nichols @ Let It Bleed in San Francisco, CA
Have you ever received a tattoo under the influence of drugs or alcohol?
If I have, I do not remember.
Do you regret any tattoos you have?
Not really, but I would fix the stars on my ankle and touch up the two on my forearms.
Are you a tattoo addict?
If I had enough money to be one, hell yeah I would!
