  1. My look varies. Have some tattoos below the short sleeve. I cut my own hair. It’s been long/short colored. It’s just hair. I don’t really care what happens to it. If I screw up cutting it? I’m fine with just shaving it and starting over. At the same time I think I clean up fairly well.
    Looking forward to hearing from you.
