Byron Bay, Australia was where Kyle first began working on his full sleeve tattoo. He lived there working as a manager at a hostel for ten months. Kyle says he became very spiritual at this time in his life and found a special relationship with god. His sleeve tattoo resembles that time in his life. After he moved back home to Victoria, Kyle met with Colin at Government Street Tattoo where he had some of his other work done. The large tattoo on his neck is a dagger going through a heart. “It cuts through the bad part of my life and separates the good from the evil, Kyle says. The right side of my heart is on fire which resembles pain and all the bad in my life, but the left side is the opposite, it resembles the good.”
The dragon which is on Kyle’s side, was tattooed on him because he was born in the year of the dragon according to the Chinese Zodiac Calendar. From straight on, Kyle’s body looks half tattooed and half not, which he says is exactly the look he was going for.
