I Love My Tattoos, My Family, and My Animals

Just a Little Bit of My World

I love my tattoos; they are an expression of my creativity. My animals, an expression of my compassion. My family, an expression of my love. 

I'm a fan of many different types of writers, the most influential being Hunter S. Thompson. He lived his way and died his way. If I can influence a tenth of the people he did, I'll have done my job.
