MY TATTOOS

I have a bunch, and I love them. Eventually, my arms and legs will be (mostly) filled up. Thought this might make an interesting list - if only because I'm showing a lot of skin... 😳
  1. 1
    My name in Hebrew (c. early 2006).
  2. 2
    A giraffe for my brother - he got a bear for me (c. May 2008).
  3. 3
    "Oh what a world..." - the Wicked Witch of the West's dying words. Also a great Rufus Wainwright song (c. Jan. 2009).
  4. 4
    "Inga kompromisser" - Swedish for "no compromises. Inspired by "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest" (c. Sept. 2010).
  5. 5
    Bougainvillea, which has grown all over my front/back yard since I was a kid. It's everywhere in my neighborhood and it's gorgeous. (round 1 c. Aug. 2011, round 2 c. Oct. 2013).
  6. 6a
    The Nautilus, giant squid, shark, and diver from "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea," the hot air balloon, boat, train, Phileas Fogg, and Passepartout from "Around the World in 80 Days," and the moon (with rocket ship) from "Trip to the Moon", by Georges Méliès, which was inspired by "From the Earth to the Moon" - all by Jules Verne (c. May 2013).
  7. 6b
    Body shot.
  8. 6c
    Body shot of it with shading. Needs color... Procrastinating (c. June 2013).
  9. 6d
    Finally put color on this bad girl. (c. February 2016)
  10. 7
    My ex and his friend were getting tattoos to commemorate their dog who had just passed away. One of the artists finished first and had nothing to do while the other one finished, so I had him do this (from The Phantom Tollbooth) (c. Jul. 2013).
  11. 8
    I got this in NYC while my LA artist looked on and harassed me (the NYC dude was a friend of his). My friend Chelsea was getting a dream catcher at the same time, same placement (c. Sept. 2013).
  12. 9
    Done same time as above. We're both LA natives and Dodger fans, it just made sense.
  13. 10
    Always wanted a pin up girl (c. Dec. 2013).
  14. 11
    My friend Sam and were I going to get flaming coffins - but I got mine first and thought he'd get the same one. His is a rabbit jumping out of a flaming coffin and I was super fucking pissed. But I'm over it now (c. Apr. 2014).
  15. 12
    Done same time as above. Had an extra 20 minutes of the hour I was paying for, so I picked something from his flash that looked cool.
  16. 13
    Wanted to get something else but the guy could tell I wasn't really excited... So he showed me this piece of flash he'd just done that day and said he'd only tattoo it on one person. I liked it, so hey! (c. Jul. 2014).
  17. 14
    Sweeney Todd, my favorite musical (c. Mar. 2015).
  18. 15a
    I had to be talked into this one. I pose nude for my artist and he wanted to do a piece to put in a book. It was excruciating, but I love it! And it led to him doing many, many more pieces like this one (c. Apr. 2015).
  19. 15b
    All healed up.
  20. 16
    It's a heart. No, a butt. Wait, it's a lady pulling her panties aside to show you her vagina?!?! Oh! It's a beach sunset! Cute! (c. Aug. 2015).
  21. 17
    Oblio and Arrow from "The Point." My favorite movie! Body & Soul Tattoo Parlor in Brooklyn (c. Nov. 2015).
  22. I've gotten work done at a lot of shops by a lot of people, but a majority has been by one guy (his partner has done 3).
  23. This is the shit we do at the shop.
  24. This is their T-shirt/slogan.
  25. Their names are Talley Matthew and Bryce Oprandi,
    And you can find them at Martlet Tattoo Parlor in Hollywood. They're fucking awesome.
