"I really have a good attitude about tattooing. When I first got one, two years ago, I was like, I'm not going to overthink this or what it means, or what it's going to be like when I'm 80. I want to get tattooed today, and in five weeks, I'll get a Sponge Bob tattoo. Will I regret it someday? I don't know, but I'm not going to deny myself this pleasure today because of what I don't know in the future."

About his "shameless" chest tattoo Jacobs says. "That's what I think everyone should aspire to in life: being shameless.

On his "perfect" tattoo - I put it there to remind me, for when I'm looking at myself and wishing that I could be stronger in this way or better at that thing, and I can just go, "No. I'm exactly how I need to be." 

"Well I have a lot of tattoos. My first tattoo I had when I was a teenager was just a little heart. I am very friendly with a great artist Scott Campbell and I started going to him to get tattoos. I'm very spontaneous about what I get. There is a story behind each one of them but they were all very spontaneous thoughts. They are permanent but I don't give it that kind of importance. They are just things I felt like doing at that time - if anything they are like my diary of where I was at that particular moment and there was a reason for each one."

Most of Marc Jacob's tattoos done by Scott Campbell.
