I’m in AZ right now sitting in the shade and soaking in this beautiful weather! We’re well into the left-coast leg of our acoustic tour and it’s been a blast so far. There’s plenty to chat about but I don’t want to gobble up all the blog content and leave the other dudes with nothing to talk about so I’m gonna talk about my new tattoo.
I got my first tattoo years ago in Nashville when we were traveling through on one of Philmont’s first tours. It was a great bonding experience and something I’ll remember forever. Since then I’ve really wanted to get more but they’re expensive and I’m a baller on a budget so I’ve always used the money on other silly little things like paying bills, feeding myself and putting gas in the car!
My birthday was on the first of this month so I had some cash in my pocket and a morning free while we were in L.A. so I decided it was time for #2.
Justin Sams designed it for me. It’s a dandelion with the roots running into the words, “You See Flowers in These Weeds”.
That’s a lyric from one of my favorite songs of all times- “Dandelions” by Five Iron Frenzy.
They’re a ska band (who, after a 10 year hiatus, are about to release a new album in 2013!)
It’s a beautiful song about how God sees us as something beautiful when it’s just as easy to look at us as ugly weeds.
If you’re not familiar with the band or the song check them out on the Google machine!
I’m also interested in hearing your opinions on tattoos on Christians. I know some people are for them and some are against them.
What are your thoughts?
