1. ‘BELIEVE’ Tattoo

Meaning: This was Ryan’s first tattoo and he got it at the age of 18 years. Ryan’s decision to get it done at such a crazy location on his body was, that he wanted to hide it from his mother as she was scornful towards the idea of getting inked.

“Yeah it is my absolute favorite word. It is my mantra, what I live by. It was a place where at the time my mom wouldn’t be able to see it and get mad at me.”

 “I had just turned 18. My mom does not like tattoos, and I wasn’t a very rebellious kid, sort of always on the straight and narrow, but I wanted to get one and not make her too mad. So I got a tattoo on the inside of my lip. How did she find out? Well, as any kid would, I told a few of my buddies about it. I showed them. They told their parents. And so I was out with my mom eating dinner one night and one of those parents comes up and says, ‘Let me see your tattoo!” Right in front of my mom. Well, she wasn’t too happy. It was tough sledding for me for a while. What does she think now? Well, she loves her baby boy. So I think she’s forgiven me.”
