I feel like I’m a pig.
I don’t want to be a pig, I want to eat my own flesh.
I have a very low tolerance for pain, and I am very sensitive to touch.
But as a human, I am one of those people who can handle a little bit of pain.
As a human being, I can survive a little pain.
I was fortunate enough to be born into a family that lived to the age of 85.
That was a great family.
I’ve seen my family die and have had to live with their grief.
I’m not trying to be bitter, but I feel that I can relate to them.
I can empathise with them.
My family is one of the most important ones in my life.
And that’s why I wanted to get a tattoo.
It’s the only way that I could put on my face that I have.
It means a lot to me, because I have the opportunity to help a lot of people, especially when it comes to animals.
But I also want to make sure that this is something that I will never regret.
The first tattoo I got was the one that says, ‘Bark’.
It’s a reference to the barking of dogs.
It just meant something to me.
The second tattoo is the one saying ‘Hang on’, and it means ‘Stay strong’.
It means I want the world to know that I’m still here, that I am strong.
I just want to put on a tattoo that will help a person understand what it means to be human.
That tattoo is my biggest tattoo.
I like that, because it says I am here to help.
I want people to know, and to help, that they can do whatever they want to people, no matter what they have to say.
I really love the animals and I want them to feel safe.
When I first got the tattoo, I had a tattoo on my right arm, and my right calf was covered with a black strip, with the words ‘I am a lion’.
I had been in the cage and in the paddock.
I’d never been in a cage before.
I had just gotten out of it.
I wanted the tattoo to be on my calf, and it was just like, ‘I don’t know what to do’.
I don, either, because this is not a tattoo, this is a piece of paper.
I asked a friend to put it on my arm.
I wrote a little message on the paper, and then I got the other side.
It was a message saying ‘I love you’.
And then the other end said ‘I want you to be happy’.
That was the tattoo that I got.
But it was really weird.
I felt a little awkward.
I didn’t really know what it meant.
I said, ‘If I want it, I’ll get it’.
But I couldn’t understand why people were thinking I was doing something wrong.
When you’re an animal, you are a lot more conscious of your body than you are with a human.
So, it was like, why is my arm covered with black stripes?
I felt really embarrassed about it.
When the tattoo was done, I got up and went out and got a few things for the people in the yard to see.
When they saw that, they started cheering me on.
I remember walking to the door of the paddocks and I said to myself, ‘Okay, I’ve got the thing I want’.
I walked to the paddocking and I sat on the bench.
I opened my arm and there was a big white stripe across my arm, like I had put a tattoo marker on it.
Then I put my foot on it, and there it was.
It said, I love you.
And it was on my body.
But they still didn’t understand that it was me.
So when they saw me with that tattoo on their arm, it wasn’t an insult.
I think they were kind of impressed.
They were like, yeah, you’re a lion.
But when they looked at me, they were like no, you aren’t a lion at all.
So I put the tattoo on again and I had this feeling that it’s okay to wear the tattoo.
They didn’t know that.
I guess I was just lucky to get it.
But at the same time, I just wanted to give back.
I thought, if I’m doing something good for somebody else, I might as well give it back.
It might as better than nothing.
I hope that I do more things for animals.
I got a tattoo to say ‘I’m here for you’.
I got that tattoo for my friend, and she got that on her leg.
They said to me: ‘We don’t need a tattoo because you’re going to be famous, and we don’t care about your tattoos.
You should be able to get that tattoo anywhere you want.’
That’s the last
