Zafera​ is a woman with super powers for sure. We’ve been trading art for art and I couldn’t be more grateful for her. You should definitely get tattooed by her, she’ll have you telling her all your secrets. She taught me that pain and emotion are bound together in the brain. She’s a legend. // 5.16.17
