Billy Bragg opening for the Pogues, Tour Dates, tattoos
‘Miss C’s arm tatoos, Billy Bragg lyric included (Neil Fitzgerald)
What and where is your tattoo?
It’s the start of a half sleeve on my right arm. So far it pictures Jenna Jameson and Dita von Teese (just missing a third girl) with Mucha style flowers and vines around them. It also says “to have an to have not” at the very top.
What does your tattoo mean to you?
Each of the girls I look up to in some way. Jenna was the 1st woman to take the sex industry and be the boss and take charge instead of being used like to many girls before her. She has also been through a lot in her life and is still going strong. For me she represents a strong independent woman. Dita to me is one aspect of what a woman should be. She’s smart, classy and does her own thing. The Mucha aspect just comes from a love of his (and that movement) of art. “To have and to have not” is the title of a Billy Bragg song. I’ve always loved the song and what it means. In the context of my tattoo it reminds me to keep my feet on the ground. [Miss C talks about her tattoos]
