The spider web on my face is a cover up of a spider web that was hand made by my sister. Before, it was a mess. It was another web. The ones on my head are from my sister as well. It was when I was a punk.

The spider web on my face is a cover up of a spider web that was hand made by my sister. Before, it was a mess. It was another web. The ones on my head are from my sister as well. It was when I was a punk. I’ve had these since I was 17 and I’m 42 now so that’s a lot of years. The one on my neck is a gun. I’ve had that for eight years. I also got “Skins” tattooed on me for a bet. I won a fiver. I dunno why I got them really, I just like them.
