“I got this dreadful haunted house and found out afterwards the artist had been using other people’s tattoos and passing them off as his own.  I wore long sleeves for a good two years before finding an amazing artist that was willing to and capable of covering it up, and I’m still as in love with it now as I was on the day I got it.”
