For example, earlier this week I was passing through K-Mart in Penn Station when it struck me: the guy I had met several months earlier in there never ended up on the site! How did that happen? I'm still scratching my head over that one, because how could I forget this tattoo?
"I'm a big opera fan ...[it's] just a form of music and expression that has always meant a lot to me," Will told me. He explained how he had waited for two hours for a singer to emerge from a venue after a performance, but she never came out. That missed autograph opportunity gave him the idea to recreate the signatures of an array of great singers on his flesh.
Among the names visible in the photo above are Maria Callas and Grace Bumbry.
The signatures were inked by Dave Wallin at Eight of Swords Tattoo in Brooklyn.
Thanks to Will for sharing his operatic arm with us here on Tattoosday!
