First ink

Винаги съм харесвал татуировките. Поради една или друга причина, винаги съм отлагал татуирането си. В крайна сметка смъртта на Лора ми даде причината да започна. Тази татуировка я завърших още на 11 юни. Впрочем вече правя втората и ще опитам да я постна тук по-скоро след като я завърша.
Първото ми мастило е доста лично и емоционално и съответно не планирам да обяснявам какво значи, а просто ще кача няколко снимки. А хората, които ни познаваха ще го разберат и без обяснение.
Татуиста е Стилян Смоков и е правена още в старото им студио на Юрий Венелин (до 7-мо СОУ). Работата отне почти 3 пълни сесии по 3-4 часа.

The pictures tell the story
This life had many shades
I’d wake up every morning and before I’d start each day
I’d take a drag from last nights cigarette
That smoldered in its tray
Down a little something and then be on my way

I traveled far and wide
And laid this head in many ports
I was guided by a compass
I saw beauty to the north
I drew the tales of many lives
And wore the faces of my own
I had these memories all around me
So I wouldn’t be alone

Some may be from showing up
Others are from growing up
Sometimes I was so messed up and didn’t have a clue
I ain’t winning no one over
I wear it just for you
I’ve got your name written here
In a rose tattoo

This ones for the mighty sea
Mischief, gold and piracy
This ones for the man that raised me
Taught me sacrifice and bravery
This ones for our favorite game
Black and gold, we wave the flag
This ones for my family name
With pride I wear it to the grave

Some may be from showing up
Others are from growing up
Sometimes I was so messed up and didn’t have a clue
I ain’t winning no one over
I wear it just for you
I’ve got your name written here

This one means the most to me
It stays here for eternity
A ship that always stays the course
An anchor for my every choice
A rose that shines down from above
I signed and sealed these words in blood
I heard them once, sung in a song
It played again and we sang along

You’ll always be here with me
Even if you’re gone
You’ll always have my love
Our memory will live on

Some may be from showing up

Sometimes I was so messed up and didn’t have a clue
I ain’t winning no one over
I wear it just for you

Signed and sealed in blood I would die for you
