I'll Wear Any Color As Long As It's Black

Of course I love my actual family. But the bonds between me and my chosen family are just as permanent.

1. Justin Matthew Briand. Justin is my oldest friend. We met when I first moved to Salem, NH in 1991 (5th grade) and though we didn’t start to achieve bff status until 1995 (Earth Science), once we got there we knew it would never end. We grew up down the street from each other but we haven’t lived in the same state in almost ten years. Still, whatever turns life takes, I know that we’ll always be connected. There’s simply no other possibility. This tattoo is a stick-and-poke done by my roommate Sara in her studio last summer.

2. Massimo Damiano Scoditti. I met Massimo at Odessa in 2002, when I had first moved to New York. He immediately asserted himself as the voice of reason in my (at the time) tumultuous life and there’s no one better to turn to in times of crisis, happiness, drunkenness, etc. We got these on Valentine’s Day 2005 in San Francisco (best time ever).

3. Amy Marie Koteles. Amy and I have a mythical friendship. We started out as complete enemies because I was dating her ex-boyfriend (who she sometimes still dated). Too many insane things to list happened to the three of us and it ended up with Amy and I being basically soulmates. These matching seagull tattoos were a drunken Mars Bar idea (based on a series of events that I won’t go into here) and surprisingly, we actually followed through and got them the next day. This is the tattoo I get the most compliments on.

    I was under the impression that it was related to BSP and that time you were on tour with them…. and of course, representing the souls of dead sailors so they can get into heaven…
