I proudly supported my country by serving in the U S Military (4 tours in Iraq). As a former Eagle Scout and still try to be trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent. I helped to bring a wonderful little boy into this world, and I try to do my best to make sure he feels loved and is brought up with good values.
I feel a lot of time people view those of us with tattoos and piercings with fear and apprehension. To me, it is an art form and manner of self expression. Maybe if people got to know a little about those different from themselves, they would be more accepting of their packaging.
