- His body is covered in tattoos from the neck down.
- I think you’re a natural walking tattoo and you have one of the most recognizable tattoos in the world, because that’s been in a lot of movies, and an insane amount of magazines. What do you think about it?
I am flattered by it. I also think it is ironic that there was a time about 20 years ago when it was quite the opposite. What I mean specifically and without bitterness is the treatment of individuals like myself who were heavily tattooed in America in the early 1980s. Whether it was on the work front or social circumstance it was definitely not perceived as cool. I think it was looked at by the average person as a declaration of war toward the collective conservative mentality. So it was attacked and demonized. I'll leave it at that...
