Gary uses body art to record phases, Good & Evil, Angels and Demons, he is experiencing in his life journey. Although themed Religion & Spirituality, it is more accurately, a remembrance of the confusion he endured as a child while being bombarded, by his parents, with religious propaganda. His teen years resulted in an introduction to an opposite perspective, Satanism.
His decision to carry his experience through life, to the end, resulted in his first tattoo when he was 17 years old. That was the beginning of the back piece, “The Fall of the Rebel Angels.” It appears balanced between good and evil now, but his aim is to end with the good on top of everything.
