I was originally planning to get the (animated series) batman logo on my back but my friend Nate had this design he did himself and I absolutely loved it. Batman was always my favorite childhood comic book character. When I was 7, I underwent surgery again and, friends & family gave me batman gifts which meant a whole lot to me and it still does.

I wanted a tattoo that would embrace my love for astronomy and consciousness of being. I remember years ago realizing the fact that we were made of star stuff when I was watching an episode of Carl Sagan’s “Cosmos” series. Since then, my entire outlook on life has changed. Our ability to experience is so cherishable. I am not one of religion, but the feelings that I experience when I think about our origins, are not unlike spirituality.
“We are part of this universe, we are in this universe, but perhaps more important than both of those facts… is that the universe is in us. When I reflect on that fact… many people feel small, cause they’re small and the universe is big, but I feel big! Because, my atoms came from those stars.” - Neil DeGrasse Tyson
