Shortly after this photo was taken, Mario (pictured above) climbed a vine up to a cloud and punched the shit out of a turtle. Err, wait, this is Andres, and he says:
Mushrooms have always been seen as a way to get in contact with inner knowledge. The symbolism [of this tattoo] is to drive my inner knowledge out of my body, through my tongue and turn it into words of knowledge.
