Fooking Metal Forever!
As me said in me earlier posting, me didn't get fooking plastered on me b'day yesterday. Instead, me went & added this "little" tattoo on me right arm. This was me wifey's gift fer me (TQ Wifey! Love you loads!)
Am sure the headbangers amongst you will recognise the cyber assassin as Iron Maiden's mascot Eddie. Why did me get this design? Ok, indulge me as me does me Miami Ink moment - Me embarked on me metal voyage a good two decades ago & Maiden's Somewhere In Time opus (original artwork below) was one of the albums that got me thru me A-levels. Lo & behold, 20 years on & me is still on this metal journey (whilst many of me brethren have let their stereos die a natural death, nevermind listen to metal!!!).
Me tattoos are a reflection of who me is - Liver Bird speaks fer itself & was done days after Istanbul. Me has also got a Sanskrit 'Aum' to signify me spiritual side & have me name tattooed in Chinese characters to reflect me mixed heritage. So this Eddie tattoo is a simple 'Fooking Metal Forever' battlecry in the face of impending middle age.
The tat took a fooking painful three hours plus and many thanx to Vicky & Cheam at Xotic Tattoo studio (16-1 Jln ss15/4 Subang Jaya. Tel: 03-5637 6167 / 012-3156167).
