Tattuesday: Sammy Gonzales

Q:  Where do you work and what do you do?
A:  I work at Windsor as a server.

Q:  How old were you when you got your first tattoo?
A:   I was thirteen years old.

Q:  Any significant meaning behind your feature tattoo?
A:  The tattoo means a lot to me because the guy who did it also did my father’s first tattoo. He was a very old man who had just got released from prison. The tattoo was done with a guitar string and a tape deck. It is not the best quality but it is my absolute favorite.

Q: What does your tattoo represent?
A: It is my date of birth featured through the Long Mayan calendar. I have always been interested in the study of Anthropology, in particular the Mayan calendar due to it’s consistency and accuracy. The bars in my piece represent the dates, which I researched and found the exact time that the stars were aligned when I was born. Then I gave the artist freedom to play with the color and animation of the tattoo. I love it!

Q: Why do you find tattoos important?
A: I find it to be a physical manifestation of my personal thoughts and feelings. It also gives me the opportunity to keep track of my beliefs and a sense of ownership.

Tattuesday: Adriane Guzman

Q:  Where do you work?
A:  Joyride Central.

Q:  Tell us about your featured tattoo.
A:  It represents Dumbledore’s podium. I am a huge fanatic of Harry Potter and Dumbledore is my favorite character. I found it only appropriate to represent his inspiration across my chest! His podium acts as a reminder of hope and reason for justice. It was behind this object where he expressed this energy.
