LET US MATCH YOUR TATTOO WITH THE PERFECT STORY

 

 

JOE - EL CORAZON LOTERIA CARD

 

Joe shared his tattoo of a loteria card. He got the tattoo on his 27th birthday when he was stationed in El Paso, TX with the US. Army.  Joe, we’re glad you’re back in California. This tattoo is a perfect symbol for any soldier who goes on deployment. It's deeper meaning is   "No me extrañes corazón, que regreso en el camión. Do not miss me, sweetheart, I'll be back by bus."

 

You might like the novel El Paso by  Winston Groom, the movie, American Jihadist as well as the collection of poetry by Viola Canales The Little Devil and the Rose: Loteri´a Poems (El Diablito y la Rosa: Poemas de la Loteri´a).

 
 
 

MYCHAL - WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE

 

Where the Wild Things Are was Mychal's favorite book as a kid. Growing up he was obsessed with it, and always wanted to be one of the wild things. When he was 11 he told his mom he was going to get a tattoo and this was the one he mentioned. She freaked out and tried to talk him out of ever doing it, but a little over a decade later he went through with it anyway.

 

You might enjoy Dave Egger's loosly based version of the story The Wild Things as well as Abarat by Clive Barker and the music album "My Head is an Animal" by Of Monsters and Men.
