Could you talk really quick about your parents or about what they thought or about— My parents . . my parents are Jewish schoolteachers who were really put off by me getting tattooed. But they’re pretty liberal and openminded and I think once they got over the initial shock of the stigma they attached to it in their generation, ’cause they were coming off, you know, Holocaust survivors were the only Jews who had tattoos .

And most people got their tattoos from Tony Polito on Westridge Boulevard. I thought he only had four tattoos.
