Today we’re featuring AP member, artist Fanesha Fabre. She told us: “I have a total of 7 tattoos and to me tattoos are a rite of passage, a memory, a reminder. They are also a form of self expression, you’re telling the world that you don’t care to be different or to stand out, FOREVER. I actually want a whole sleeve but I am working towards that. :D”
