The Time I Got My Gums Tattooed


Hey Y'all. Rocsi here. Let’s talk gum tattoos.

When it comes to tattoos, some ideas are great in both, theory and praxis. Whereas others are good only as a thought. Tattoo ideas come to me sporadically. There are some ideas that take time to plan out and others that appear in the spur-of-the-moment. One day, as I did some research for INKED, I came across some pics of people with gum tattoos - HAND POKED GUM TATTOOS - that is. I thought, “Hey that’s dope. I want.” In my mind I imagined it to be red ink saying “reDruM” for me it would say “Murder.” A reference to my favorite Stephen King movie “The Shining.” Let’s follow me on my journey to my gum tattoo, that forever changed my life.
