David Lynch Gave Me A Tattoo

I got an original David Lynch for life.

March 16, 2012: David Lynch had his first art opening in New York since 1989 this Friday at The Tilton Gallery. I found out about it just a few hours before it started. I ran up there as soon as I got off of work. I walked in and didn’t see him. I felt disappointed for just a moment until I realized there was a staircase. I went up and turned a corner and there he was… an Icon and my hero! He looked amazing. It was like George Washington stepped off of a dollar bill and was standing in front of me. I didn’t have the idea for the tattoo until about 30 seconds before he talked to me. I had that marker in my pocket from work and I touched it and the thought popped into my head. An hour later I was in the tattoo parlor. It was all a blur. It was fantastic! I will never forget it.
