The unexamined life is not worth living - attributed to Socrates
My first literary tattoo. It’s from Hamlet “Doubt thou the stars are fire, Doubt that the sun doth move, Doubt truth to be a liar, but never doubt I Love.” I added the image of Eros after to make it into an entire piece. I love it so much; it means the most to me!

“All is an Ocean. All flows and connects so powerfully that if, in this life, you manage to become more gracious by even a drop, it is better for every bird, child and animal your life touches than you will ever know. Start praying to the birds in ecstasy! Cherish this ecstasy, however senseless it may seem to people!” - Doystoyevsky from The Brothers Karamazov

This was my first tattoo I got Thanksgiving of 2011. A line from the amazing musical Rent, which shaped my childhood and formed my teen years.
This is my seventh (and last) tattoo and is the title of a book by Haruki Murakami. It is made in white ink.
Always the Shakespeare fan, my first tattoo is from “Romeo and Juliet”. I like to think of it as a reminder that free will can always overpower whatever the stars have in mind for you. Done at Bang Bang Body Arts in Northampton, MA
