After reading That Grape Juice for a long time, I know you all are fans of Beyonce. What am doing is having a sleeve tattoo done to celebrate her achievements.
So people are gonna hate the reason why I am having it done. I am 27, and for the last 14 years I have followed Destiny’s Child. And then as the group split, I focused on Beyonce. So half of my life I have supported Beyonce. When things have been extremely difficult for me, I always knew I can get lost in a world of her music.
I have had the pleasure of meeting DC and Bey once on many occasions; and at the last ever DC gig in Vancouver Beyonce picked me from the audience and sang Cater 2 U to me.
I was hoping that you may be able to showcase my tattoos, as I want the world to see firstly I am not a stalker or some crazed fan. It’s just that I wanted to have something on my body that has helped me out with so much pain in my youth .
Also I was at the ‘Night with Beyonce’ recording. I was the second fan to ask her a question, but it end up on the cutting room floor lol
Hope you like and will look forward to hearing from you soon.
The B Is from the 4 era and added a crown to it to make it King B.
The bumble bee, as you can recognize, was on the Deja Vu single and was included for promotional use during the Sasha Fierce era.
The signature is from the very first signed picture i got of her when Destiny’s Child were performing at Sheffield Arena on their Survivor tour.
The Gramophone is to represent the 16 Grammys Beyonce has.
The roman numeral is Beyonce’s birth date. 9-4-81
And i have just had done a Beyonce silhouette which is from the back page of the I Am…Sasha Fierce tour programme.
