Haven't talked in depth much on what this tattoo even is or what it means.
The important aspects of the image are Zorro, the mountains and the water.
Around 6 years ago, my older brother, Josh, passed away.
I wanted to get something permanent to remeber him by.
When I think about him, a lot of things come to mind.
Alaska, our home, hence the mountains and ocean, and Zorro, his favorite show growing up.
We’d watch countless hours of Zorro, and Josh would always dress up as the masked vigilante almost every Harvest Fest (aka Halloween for Church). Apparently while he was super young he’d draw z’s all over the place in the spirit of his hero.
The pain that followed his passing was beyond words, but the triumph that Jesus had over the tragedy was infinitely more weighty.
In a time where I thought God was either distant or cruel, He showed me that he was good and near.
That revelation literally saved my life.
It’s been a long journey, and the pain is still there and real, but the joy and peace God has given me is the most real thing I’ve ever had the pleasure of experiencing.
God is real, God is perfect, and He loves us tremendously.
Live for Him.
Any other life is infinitely pail in comparison.
This tattoo is a memoir for Josh, but it’s more so a testimony of the supreme love and comfort of God.
Special thanks to @boss_667ttt for the design and putting together the ideas.

Any dim sum restaurant that serves the full dim sum menu all day, gets an A+ in our book! Checked out Cai in Chicago’s Chinatown yesterday. So. Much. Deliciousness. Going on here! Once you are seated, you’re handed basically a picture menu the size of a placemat. It’s definitely“let the gluttony begin.” You get all the choices up front, as opposed to choosing from the dim sum carts. Which is good and bad because (1) you order way too much, (2) you have no idea how full or hungry you’ll be once everything comes, and (3) back to number one and two, if you order a crap ton, you end up forgetting what the heck you ordered. 🤷🏻♀️ Not only was it spectacular, but super affordable for all the items we ordered!!
Anthropocene: the current geological age, viewed as the period during which human activity has been the dominant influence on climate and the environment.
Highly recommend #AnthropoceneProject at the Art Gallery of Ontario, @edwardburtynsky 's stunning display of large format photographs of the ever-growing mark we are leaving on our planet. The added AR interactivity was an interesting experience (the white rhino and the ivory tusks were not "there") The #AGO is a great place to hang out for an afternoon with my daughter
