Tattoo #13

Category: Life,Tattoos

Last night, with the upcoming trache change and all, I decided to go for my thirteenth tattoo. I’m really into Elliott Smith, I think his music is some of the truest, most honest music ever written.

    That is a fantastic song; good choice. Elliot Smith is the perfect companion for heartbreak and pensive reflection. I like the new tattoo.
