A few years ago my porch collapsed, sending me fifteen feet down onto concrete. Luckily the only injuries to come out was shattering my left foot and spending six months unable to walk at all. After that, I knew that this was the perfect thing to get on my foot. My favorite poet growing up was Shel Silverstein and the poem, Where the Sidewalk Ends, was perfect to represent my situation. This is one of my favorite tattoos to date.

Shel Silverstein “love” poem…*so im all of love that could make it today* this simple quote always sit in my mind. Sometimes I feel like i’m the only one to who keeps on showing up no matter what. I got this tattoo done by Anthony at McKenzies in Mahopac NY, he is a very talented artist that makes you feel super comfortable and will tell you his honest opinion.
V is the best letter.

My arm is dedicated to my childhood. Shel Silverstein was and continues to be one of my biggest literary influences. I chose the illustration from “Falling Up” and the second verse from “Where the Sidewalk Ends”, two of my favorites.

This is my third tattoo, and I’m already in love with it. My parents used to read me Shel Silverstein poems when I was little and I still read his books today. This particular poem, which is from the newest compilation With Everything On Top, really makes me think of my dad. He passed away last fall and most of the inspiration for my tattoos comes from him. This was done by Matt Bushart at Enchanted Dragon Tattoo Parlor in Sierra Vista, AZ.
