Land of the Free

Tattoo // Wednesday, July 04, 2012

And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air, Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there; O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave, O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.... Happy 4th!!

Tattoo // Tuesday, July 03, 2012

Just because Lil Wayne and Gucci did it doesn't mean you need to also. I'm not going to say that it doesn't work on the right people, and sometimes it even looks good- but remember, everything in moderation....
