This is what it is to love an artist: The moon is always rising above your house. The houses of your neighbors look dull and lacking in moonlight. But he is always going away from you. Inside his head there is always something more beautiful.

This picture was taken a few moments after i got it done, so it is incredibly swollen. i plan on submitting a healed one so that the colors are more visible as well. i got this tattoo today while in florida, although i’m from canada, because that has been one of my dreams since i was young; to get a tattoo in my favorite place in the world.
this song has always been my favorite pink floyd song, but as i’ve gotten older, it has become special to me on a deeper level. pink floyd has been getting me through a lot lately, especially this song, so i am especially stoked to have this tattoo.
i have my mom to thank for my taste in music, as she brought me up listening to pink floyd and other amazing bands from before my time. i was lucky enough to have her hand to hold today when it got painful.
the tattoo is based on something i painted not too long ago, and decided i would love to have it as a tattoo. I went to Pleasures of the Flesh in Fort Myers, Florida and it was Aaron that made it come to life. he was so awesome and helpful with tying the design together for the tattoo. he is extremely talented and i would highly recommend him and the shop to anyone in the area, or going to be in the area.
