    • Tattoos: How many do you have, and what do they mean? I have 4 Tattoos with 2 on their way.

      I have a Tribal Sign on my left pec. It's the first tattoo I got. I had visited the shop about 8 times before, and that particular design always called to me. A week or so after I turned 18 I went in and I got it. I have no idea of its origin or meaning.

      I have a Japanese word on my right deltoid. It means "Tranquility". It was the closest translation I could get to "Relax". When I was in university I used to have the word RELAX written in big black bold letters on a piece of paper next to my mirror. This was just an extension of what that meant to me..but on my body. So I could see it in every mirror.

      Below that tattoo I have a "Red Maple Leaf" the size of a half dollar. I'm from Canada. I'm proud.

      On my left wrist, in courier font, I have the last name of my friend Andre Noble that passed away a few weeks before I left for my journey to New Zealand. He was a gifted actor and the best soul I have ever encountered. He and I were founders of an acting ensemble in Toronto. We acted opposite each other in the play that I wrote (In Between). Together we had some very big plans and were writing a new play and screenplay together. I put NOBLE on my wrist to always remind to try and be noble in my life and art and so he's always on my pulse.
