description:I know that a bad tattoo isn't usually something to celebrate, but I was young (18/19) and thought I had access to BME, I did not have access to multiple artists. There was one tattooist in my area, and I made an impromptu decision to get the BME logo tattooed on my back. I submitted it when Shannon made the call for people with the logo to share their tattoos. He literally wrote me back within minutes and told me it was the worst logo he had ever seen. At first I was hurt. I mean, I put money and time into subscribing the site as well as paid a pretty penny for a young adult for the tattoo. I never had it covered up, though. I'm almost 31 now, and I can't bring myself to cover it up. I'm actually working with my tattooist to incorporate it with my back cover-up piece. I never got to meet Shannon in person, but as social media grew, we did exchange some messages on Facebook. I did the late-bloomer thing and started my piercing apprenticeship when I was 29. He was a member of the Tattoo & Piercing Scratch Attack private group and was staunchly defending the fact that in some areas, $20 and $30 is all you can make, even as a professional piercer. We exchanged a few messages about the pretension in the industry, and he gave me a lot of encouragement about keeping at it and becoming the piercer I know I can be. BME and Shannon were a large part of my young adult life. I met the artist who did my scarification through BME, I found out about the Church of Body Modification through BME, I learned about the Fakir Intensives through BME. None of that would have been possible without Shannon. So, I cannot, in good conscience, cover up my horrible "worst [he's] ever seen!" BME logo tattoo...
