This is Tom.
Guess what Tom does? Mechanics and Gearheads will recognize his tattoos instantly. That’s Tom’s tribe. If Tom got stuck in some shitty dinner party with a bunch of stuck up assholes, he would stick out like a sore thumb. But if another guest recognized Tom’s tattoos and showed him his arms marked with crossed pistons and spark plugs, immediately Tom and his new buddy would be best friends. With in minutes they would be swapping stories of engines and car builds. By the end of the night Tom would take a punch for his new friend. Because they are in the same tribe.
This is why we get tattooed. To mark our tribe. Even if that wasn’t your intent, the choices you make and the images to which you are drawn to show who you are. Good, bad or indifferent. What do your tattoos say about you?
