"The tremendous world I have inside my head.
But how free myself and free it without being torn to pieces.
And a thousand times rather be torn to pieces than retain it in me or bury it.
That, indeed, is why I am here, that is quite clear to me."
This is my freshly done representation of the Greek myth of Baucis and Philemon with a quote from Some Trees by John Ashbery. It was done by Steven Lam at Working Class Tattoo in Honolulu, HI. He was amazing and it only took about two and a half hours even with my ambivalence over completing the piece all in one session. I absolutely love it! :)
