Because, you know, he's obviously a pretty heavy fan of the Fall, and they can be a bit . . . uh, sectarian in my experience. But finally I said, "Hey, that's a huge tattoo of Mark E. Smith out of the Fall on your arm." And then I was so glad I did, because I didn't make his day, I made his year. It turned out that mine was the first positive ID of his tattoo ever. Guy's been walking around with Mark E. Smith on his arm for ten years, and nobody recognized it once.The tattooed man, identified as Alan H, later clarified in the comments section that the tattoo was only ten weeks old and that it was on his anterior deltoid. The artist was Patrick Cornolo of Speakeasy Custom Tattoo.
