Life is one long decay, no? There's a lot of beauty in it. Like the patina in an old city.
I love seeing tattoos on 60-year-olds who have had them for 40 years.
Many artists who don't go off to art school come to New York. It's about what you learn when you're here.
I think when tattoos are new and colorful, they look bad. But they look better the older and more bleached out they become.
I always have a lot of things going on because some things take years to make and others take five minutes. I like that there's always something going on. Working doesn't have such a momentous feel - like it's all or nothing.
