One of my favorite places to go when I was growing up was theSalem Public Library. I spent hours lost in the stacks. Invariably, I always ended up in the art section and the artist I was drawn to the most wasMarcel Duchamp. Fast forward to my 44th birthday and I’m getting my first tattoo. I wanted something related to the artist that left a deep impression on me. I originally considered“Fountain“but a urinal on my forearm? Not quite right. “Bicycle Wheel” was a much better choice and Lisa Orth atAlleged Tattoo did an amazing job. I doubt Marcel would have thought much of me getting one of hisreadymades tattooed on my arm but fuck, it’s cool.
