This is Nicky's tattoo.
Armed with Madness is a book by British author Mary Butts. I read the book about four years ago and the inscription for the book simply reads "Armed with madness, I go on a long voyage."
To be honest with you the book itself isn't one of my favourites, but that line, inscription, title just stayed with me for so long, I would write it everywhere, on anything, so I decided that the logical thing would be to get in tattooed.
I got it done whilst travelling around California, in a little shop in Monterey called Creative Visions. My tattoo artist was a lovely, very mellow surfer who liked the message my tattoo gave, twas a great experience.
