c’est la vie – LOVE SICK

Hi there, my name is Pascual Romero, and I have a hard time finding jobs ;)

I kid, but I do have knuckle tattoos, and I thought I’d share mine.

The “c’est la vie” statement is something I like to live my life by.  Loosely translated from French, it means “such is life” or “that’s life”, which is my rather laid-back way of looking at what comes my way.  Bad day, good day, it’s just life and it’s up to me to take it for what it is.  I think it’s a very positive way of looking at things, personally.
Second, my “Lovesick” tattoo across my lower knuckles was actually the end product of the little heart tattooed on my right middle finger.  I got it in honor of my TV show “Rad Girls”, where I serve as the associate producer and occasional on-screen personality.  I wanted to incorporate it into something clever, and being the romantic that I am, figured it would be a pretty fitting statement.

Thanks!

ON A ROLL

I recently made a big decision and quit my job to do something i want rather than to just slave to the grind you know…

HOLD TRUE – PARAMORE

Jesse Bink is a bad ass mofo. His knuckles and his reasons:

hey man, im Jesse Bink, i’m a tattoo’er from NYC, and my HOLD TRUE knuckle tattoo’s are based on a feeling i have that you should hold true to your convictions whatever they may be, mine being Straight-Edge… the small staggered knuckle set was a dare by a good friend of mine after calling me out on a “i will get paramore knuckle tattoo’s i love that band so much.”…. so i cant back out of a “you wont” challenge… hence, paramore knuckles… i DO love me some paramore though… dont like it? fight me.

ARCHENEMY

Dave Bireley is back again, and trying to force my hand to create a new category (9-Down), but he didn’t realize I already had an “other” category. Good to hear from you again Dave. This is his reason for getting his double (and a thumb) deckers.

Just had these done 3/12/11. Story is that ARCH ENEMY is my favorite melodic death metal band.
