    At 3:00 this afternoon, work begins on my latest tattoo. It's the word "PERSEVERANCE" from shoulder to shoulder across my chest. That'll be stage 1. Stage 2 (when I have more money) will be crossed sledge hammers below the word, with a banner wrapped around them with the words "Pride, Faith, Respect, Today, Tommorrow, Forever" on it. This tattoo holds a lot of significance for me, revolving around my struggles to overcome the many obstacles and oppostition I have faced over the past decade of my life. I have been drug-free since January of 1998, and totally clean and sober (took awhile to give up the booze) since February of this year. I've lost friends and family to drugs and disease, struggled to find myself throughout all of this. This year has been a defining year for me as far as my own identity and self-worth and now that I have chosen a path, I have decided to get a new tattoo to always remind me of my struggles and the fight to succeed in spite of them.

    Yes, I kick ass.

    Better hope that freak doin the inking spells it right, thats a BIG word to put on, esp. misspelled. lol.

    thats awesome man! very cool you have found yourself and a good path to move forward in life on. pics when its done.

    I too am getting a new tattoo, very soon. been 10 plus years since my last. getting my sons name in large, maybe Keltic or Viking type lettering down the back of my bicep. above the first letter will have it say "my son", or maybe "my boy", and below the last letter will have it say "my love", and his birth date. cant wait to get some ink, its been far too long.

    That's crazy. But the whole beleive in yourself thing is where it's at brother. Perseverance is all about self-supremacy. Right on.

    Damn I was hoping you were gonna get all the CO Crew's names tattooed on you. :D


    That is awesome though, Bro.

    Personally I've been thinkin' of some serious arm sleeves.... that's a lot of money that could go towards my rig, though....
