The artwork from the poem “The Edge of the World” by Shel Silverstein from the book Where the Sidewalk Ends. My favorite book growing up and reminds me daily to never take things too seriously.

This is my third tattoo, and I’m already in love with it. My parents used to read me Shel Silverstein poems when I was little and I still read his books today. This particular poem, which is from the newest compilation With Everything On Top, really makes me think of my dad. He passed away last fall and most of the inspiration for my tattoos comes from him. This was done by Matt Bushart at Enchanted Dragon Tattoo Parlor in Sierra Vista, AZ.
“If you are a dreamer, come in, If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, A hope-er, a pray-er, a magic bean buyer… If you’re a pretender, come sit by my fire For we have some flax-golden tales to spin. Come in! Come in!” - Invitation by Shel Silverstein
My Shel Silverstein tattoo that I’ve been building for a couple years now, not sure if it’s totally finished yet or not.. but for now it’s my favorite thing. Done by John Bicknell at Steel City Tattoos in Bethlehem, PA. I live in Boulder, CO now and I’ll still travel all the way home for my ink.
