As many of you are aware, I have a tattoo of ‘The Mark ‘ on my right wrist that I got when Jewel Torres came to visit me in Phoenix, in Jan 2018. Having both spent far too much time in the church, we loved the delicious irony of the name of our tattoos, as well as the placement. (The Mark on our Wrists) We loved that we got them, but we were certain our artist was fresh out of school, given the obvious imperfections in his work. But we loved them, and we loved getting them done; together.
Side by Side
Over time, mine showed signs of micro scarring, (blank spots where the ink did not take properly), which was not nearly as bothersome to me, as the iris being off center. The two things combined, really bugged me. So today, I decided to do something about it, and went into a tattoo shop by my house to inquire about having it fixed.
Having found myself feeling extremely confident in the artist I consulted with, I sat down on the spot -to let Issac make the adjustments we spoke about. In the course of our conversation, trigger words and mantras, like integrity, critical thinking, don’t ever give up, keep going no matter what, flew between us as naturally as if they had been divinely scripted.
Eventually of course, the conversation turned to The Illuminati, due to the symbolism of The Mark itself. We were shocked to discover that he had only a few days before, downloaded a copy of The Eternal Oath he hadn’t signed yet! Although I bet he will tonight, Lol I mean… what are the freak odds Issac!?
Anyway, I was able to share more information about the outreach, and tell him about my book, and he in turn shared a brief version of his life from prison to his present understanding. I was so excited, because I know IAM digs it when folks crawl out of the ditch, and climb over their dominos! I knew they would want to watch This guy closer!
It was all very surreal to meet a brother out of nowhere, and being able to invite him to join us; personally. He is everything IAM looks for in a human, and it was amazing watching his eyes Light up, as he became more animated in sharing his journey with me. There was no doubt for either of us, I was there by “appointment”, even though I was a walk in!
I am really just so blown away, I am having a hard time articulating myself. But it sure makes sense now, why I was drawn to this particular shop! I always glanced towards it on my way home.
As you can see, he did an incredible job of reviving my Mark. I freaking love how he not only fixed it, but made it FABULOUS! He even used some white outlining, to make it pOp! This is it under the protective coating designed to aid healing. I will add more images to this little shout out, once it heals and I get back over there to grab a photo of us together. Suffice to say, it was an incredible experiences getting my tat rehabbed today~
Here are Issac’s deets, if you happen to live in the Phoenix Metro area~
Remember, Issac was improving upon someone elses work. I actually asked for the Tat to be simple in form, like it appears.
