Number of tattoos: 1 (with one planned)
Number of piercings: 1
Number of scarifications: 1
Tattoo: Trinity knot of branches wrapped with vines on my right bicep. 6 layers of symbolism all of which only mean things to me :). The branches wrapped with vines will also be a principle component of my new tattoo which is still in the planning stage.
Scarification: Vine on my left bicep. It's what I used to sign my name with growing up, because my initials are ERB and I'm fascinated by herbalism
Piercing : navel ring. My first and only metal. nothing I've gotten since has been willing to heal.
