She is just everywhere now, 2020
temporary tattoos installed throughout Mood Room at Park Central

Growing up, my mother had rules against piercings and tattoos. While I was able to get away with the former, the latter was not to happen under her roof — unless it were to say “Mom” and be on your ass, that is.

Although I have not yet gotten the permanent version done, these temporary tattoos function as a tongue-in-cheek memorial to her. The tattoo features her signature pulled from a recent birthday card.
