Every day in October I will be rocking an A To Z Blog Challenge about my terribly terrific tattoos. Every day a new letter. Today is October 11 so the letter of the day is J (I’m taking Sundays off)
J is for JS… My Initials.
JS. Two letters. Too easy. As I kid I dreamed of having to sign a lot of autographs. My dream has been achieved… if only because I embrace a pretty loose definition of “a lot”. Used to happen every night while on tour in the UK with Tragedy. So I’ll take it.
As a kid though I wasn’t prescient enough to practice signing “Robin Gibbens” and I sure as shit wasn’t going to worry about signing my entire last name. But I WAS prety sure I was gonna be a big rap star (listen below for evidence). So during the few high school classes I actually attended I spent my time working out “artistic” combinations of the letters J and S and this is what I came up with. It’s a cursive J that turns into a modified S where the S takes the shape of a star. The fact that I have to explain it makes it a pretty decent fail. They say you get the tattoo you deserve. You certainly do. I call this one my prison tattoo cuz it looks like that’s where I got it. Maybe it was?
J.A.K.E. (Just As Kickin’ as Ever)
