My self-summary
I make art on and off skin.
I have a sardonic sense of humor and an acerbic tongue.
I am a fountain of random facts and useless knowledge.
I love mythology, folklore, and fairytales.
I have a fat ass puggle named Meatball 🍝🐶🍝
I began every sentence with "I".
What I’m doing with my life
Sometimes this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9g_EheqtAOw&t=0m56s

Opening my first tattoo shop this Spring

Tattooing around the world (7 countries so far!)
I’m really good at
Ahh, the boasting section.

Stabbing people with needles. IG: he_draws

Making puns.
The first things people usually notice about me
My thick ass eyebrows, piercing gaze, and how politically incorrect I am.

Stretched lobes, currently 3/4"

When I'm at my tattoo shop it's usually the (current) lack of visible tattoos.

I also love classical, opera, classic rock, nerdcore, and hip-hop. There's a handful of country songs that I can stomach, but only a handful.

Deadlines
On a typical Friday night I am
Most likely I'm sequestered away in my cave, arting like some sort of social pariah.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
...could cause a universal paradox that would end existence as we know it.

A good chunk of my vocabulary comes from playing Magic: the Gathering. One of my life goals is to illustrate a card or two for that game.

Gene Belcher is my spirit animal.

When I'm walking the streets at night, I enjoy looking into lit up apartment windows, especially in fancy schmancy neighborhoods.

I'm utter shit at sports.
You should message me if
You want to be drawn like one of my French girls.

You (and others) would consider yourself to be intelligent, enjoy foul humor, are capable of deep conversation, love the visual arts, would like to accompany me to gallery openings to eves-drop on befuddled patrons, and can tolerate listening to (or better yet enjoy) heavy metal. That about sums it up.

Also, I've never been to an opera before and have been dying to go see The Ring of the Nibelungs at the Metropolitan Opera, but holy shit is it expensive.

One final word of warning: My career as a tattooer comes first and foremost at this point in my life. This is the kind of job where you reap what you sow. Most of my free time is spent preparing my designs, leaving not a whole lot of time for dating/relationships. This has caused issues with people that I've met here in the past, hence the disclaimer. Please be aware of and cool with that.
