I got another tattoo done on impulse on Sunday evening. I decided to commemorate the breakup with *x with the new tattoo and said so in the video (actually I said “Steph” in the video, this is a semi-honest mistake, I meant to say “star crossed”). It was done at no other than Borneo Headhunters Tattoo and Piercing for RM 500.
The tattoo is the very same Celtic cross tattoo [sixthseal.com] that I had wanted to do for a long time. Celtic cross sounds too generic so I gave it a name – “For the devil my soul, for you, my flesh“. It’s a tattoo of a Celtic cross with the inscription “In nomine patris, et filii, et spiritus sancti” which means “In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Sprit” in Latin.
The tattoo was done at 5 pm on the 3rd of September 2006, the very same day I was warded for psychosis. I was in a manic state then, and wanted to get a tattoo so I called up Ernesto at Borneo Headhunters (who won the best Celtic/Tribal tattoo award twice in a row) and got myself inked.

“This is dedicated to Steph, because of you; I never stray too far from the sidewalk.”
This is the tracing of the tattoo being done…
…and getting the outline on my back.
This is me getting inked.
There’s the tattoo forming…
…and it’s done.
For the devil my soul, for you, my flesh.
