    It is quite possible that I am crazy, yes, but I’m okay with that. Since this tattoo, I’ve had another orang done, just below it, and I’m planning on getting more in the future!

    The artist who did the tattoo is John in Inkwell Tattoo, Dublin, Ireland. He’s fantastic with colour, and he stayed true to my original drawing, which I really appreciate.
