"I think everybody's got a way of expressing their feelings, and mine is through my tattoos."

"The idea to get tattooed came to me a little while after Brooklyn was born. I was talking to Mel B and her then-husband, Jimmy Gulzar, and the subject of tattoos came up. I ended up going to this Dutch guy who'd done all of Jimmy's. I'd finally realized what I wanted a tattoo to represent. Mine are all about the people in my life, my wife and sons, who I want with me always. When you see me, you see the tattoos. You see an expression of how I feel about Victoria and the boys. They're part of me." 

"I don't plan on having a tattoo, it's just sometimes I wake up and I think, you know, I've got an idea of an image I would like on me.


"Some people love tattoos, some people don't. It's just something that I have always found can kind of express how I'm feeling, or the thoughts that I have or memories...most of my tattoos are memories and things that mean things to me...there's not one tattoo that I've got on me that doesn't mean something."
