A tattoo is a true poetic creation, and is always more than meets the eye. As a tattoo is grounded on living skin, so its essence emotes a poignancy unique to the mortal human condition.

Were you and Tupac Shakur friends?
[Long pause.] Yes, we were friends, and I remember the last thing I ever said to him. It was at the “Waiting to Exhale” party last year, and I was so surprised to see him because I didn’t know he’d gotten out of jail. So I waved him over, and we hugged and I told him, “Baby, you got to promise me something—don’t let them get you.” And he said, “I won’t.” That was the last thing I ever said to him, and he didn’t do it. It hurt my heart for him to die.

When he shall die,
Take him and cut him out in little stars,
And he will make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night
And pay no worship to the garish sun.
