    I think that each person mailing the video should put a picture of something about their life in the package, just for the sake of getting to know each other a little better. What do you think?

    I don't have any good pictures of them, but can I try and take some. Right now they are different pieces, but when I find the right artist I would like to tie everything together with flowers, and bits and pieces of things that remind me of the keys. Hopefully one day I will have both of my arms, chest, and back covered by tattoos. I really don't want it to be some thing that everyone thinks is distasteful. I really want it to be something that people think is really pretty, and quite tasteful. Which is why it is taking me sooooo long to find the right artist. Right now I am planning to get all of the schomb flowers that I have in my collection tattooed. I plan to get the hurricane monument tattooed on me (monument in Islamorada dedicated to all of the people who lost their lives in the Labor day hurricane of 1935). A palm tree up the back of my arm with the fronds going across my back. Lots of plans, but there aren't any very good artists in my area. So when I don't have so much going on, and I have time to take to travel somewhere every month then I will look seriously for the right artist.

    LOL, I can just picture a Schomb tattoo...Aaron's feet will be tattooed with the leaves, a long spike will run up his leg, torso and neck, and the flowers will adorn his forehead!

    Or maybe a really great new book where the tattoos on a dead body give the clues which solve some mystery! There you go McJ--better start working on that new manuscript.

    Arron do you know Shadow, who has a shop in The Tiffany Square shopping center off San Casa? She did mine and also did a great cover up of old military/mexican tatoos on my uncle's arms. She is really good. I am pretty sure that she is still there.

    No, never met her. Although, I have heard some bad things about that shop. This was a while back, so I don't know if it's a new owner or not. I had one done up in Venice, but that guy doesn't really tattoo in the style that I want it in. I'm in no real hurry, so I am just going to wait until I come across the right artist. Next time I am up that way though, I'll stop by there to have a look see at her portfolio.
