Recycling Moments in Life

Echo says that his tattoo, done by X at Whatever Tattoo on St. Marks Place, Manhattan NY, is symbolically meant to be both simple and vague so that people could pull different things from it.

For me its rooted somewhat from the recycle symbol, but thats only because its moving in a clockwise fashion symbolizing the passage of time, the black and “white” areas represent duality of self and situation.

He tells people a variety of things — that he’s recyclable, that he loves the spin cycle, that he’s a poke’mon master, but his personal phrase that he uses when he’s being serious is,

The black area is when you’re in a shitty place, the white area, a good happy space, and it’s a reminder that when shit sucks eventually over time it gets better, when it’s awesome, don’t take it for granted… it might not always be that way.

  1. i really like the idea, i try to live the same way. whenever stuff is bad i know it is only a matter of time before it improves, and vice versa :)

  2. I really like the simplicity of it and yay St. Marks Place! I loved walking there and checking out the different fetish clothing and tattoo/piercing shops there. I wonder if Andromeda’s still there.

  3. grr. it said i less than three you, you rock :) (stupid moveable type screwing up with the less than sign)

    thanks again.

  4. personally i’d tell noone about the real explanation and solely stick to the pokemon one.

  5. Ok, so, best pose I’ve seen in a long time. And I’m so glad I don’t have to be signed in to post anymore. I miss posting on here.
