Bland Ambition: A Tribute to Paul and Mary

A couple of months ago I got a new tattoo by the wonderful Shay Cannon at Liberty Tattoo here in Atlanta.

This design is dedicated to two of my favorite people: Mary Woronov and Paul Bartel. The caricatures are by illustrator Bob Schulenberg from the album cover of the Eating Raoul LP soundtrack.

Paul and Mary have been my movie heroes for years. I like to pretend they are my Bizarro World, fantasy parents. In fact, most people that have seen this tattoo ask, "Are those your parents?" 

I just smile and say, "Why, yes, it is!"
