Typewriter Tattoo

By
When I was sixteen, my grandfather gave me an old Adler desktop typewriter. I started writing and never stopped. A couple of years ago, after dragging the machine with me from BC to California and back a couple of times, not to mention the constant use, the machine broke down and was deemed beyond repair.

I took a photo and redrew it in Illustrator with a linocut style, and then I had it tattooed on my chest. It was three hours' needle time.

can't really believe you did that. you must felt/feel strongly about having that tattooed.
Hey, I know this is like digging up an old grave but would you still happen to have the file that you created that tattoo with? The linocut that you did with Illistrator? I'd like to work it into a piece of art that I am working on. Let me know, Thanks!!!
