tattoo with keith haring babies

jamie’s original tattoo

my good friend marco guzman and i designed this tattoo for me. the
illuminated baby is from keith haring, and we duplicated the baby in a circle of
ten to illustrate “one in ten.” it’s on my upper back between my shoulder
blades. the actual tattoo has the rainbow flag colors in place of the red in the
top baby.

late breaking realization! one of my favorite songs, “the origin of love” on the hedwig cd, refers to men in love as “children of the sun.” my tattoo is sun-shaped. coincidence or destiny? you decide : )

i am completely absorbed in the colorful window before me
tattoo with hedwig art


tattoo with hedwig art


for our 5th anniversary, kirk and i decided to get the hedwig artwork tattooed on our necks. it’s the same artwork that’s on our wedding rings, except that we switched artwork. my ring’s half is on kirk’s back, and vice-versa.

for our tenth anniversary, we’ll probably get them colored in.

and that’s the origin of love.

update: the nice folks at artsy found this page and liked it, and alerted me to their keith haring page, which is very nice and very comprehensive. check it out, and explore the rest of the site.

  5. … are you still suffering from Wall Warts? ;P
    Chuckie is doing well, not together anymore, after 10 yrs we decided to end it. But we’re still good friends. Yep, been back in SoFla since 2003, in Fort Lauderdale. Everything is good, steady job that pays the bills and doing the “art thing” on the side.
    In Breckenridge, Co. right now, on a skiing vacation… boyfriend couldn’t make it, so I’m here by myself… and so far I’ve only managed to sprain two fingers! Anyway… lots going on…. it was nice to hear from you…
