John (not his real name) loves his tattoos. His lower legs are tattooed all round with a curious mixture of Gothic images and verses from the Bible. With his tattoos covered, John can strut down Shenton Way like any other lawyer.
John shocked his colleagues when his legs were exposed during a overseas trip. To make things worse, his father teaches in a prison. But John is a professional and not a wayward child. He is comfortable with his tattoos and his love for rock music.
Day or night? Good or evil? John believes that only God can judge. That’s the theme of his back piece.
