"Generally, all my tattoos symbolise a place and time - a moment that I had wanted to remember. The angel on my back (the center piece) was my first tattoo when I was 17, and back then, the whole concept of angels just meant a lot to me. I guess I liked the idea of angels - whether or not I believe in them, don't ask.
The one on my leg, the three stars, I did it on the last night in New York, before I flew off to Brazil. I was at a bar downtown, and I did the same tattoo on the same spot with this newfound Brazillian girl I met in Florida - it was suppose to symbolise our connection but I have not seen her since that night.

"This is my second tattoo after four years of getting my first. I was in no rush to getting another one; I knew I would but I wanted the ink to represent something. 'Dreamer' was my way of reminding myself of the 1001 things to do and an oath to doing the 1001 things I want to do."
