this is get cake die young I woke up with it I had no idea I'd even got it I was so up I literally was just like alright that's their got the name little peep because since I was a small baby my mom has called me deep I don't know why peepers feet just it's just what she calls pretty much every one of my life calls me peeps Oh Pete I was born in Halloween night November 1st so I got the 11 one also so I got like bats over here this pumpkin one I got a lot of spooky going on these things I hate these things centipedes they just seem to find me and like bother me all the time so I figured I'd get one tattooed on me I did not always know I was gonna get tattoos the first one I got is this big one right here it's my mom's birthday err initials so that she wouldn't get mad at me because it's my first tattoo when I was 14 you got what grandpa I got my mom I got friend to taunt me so yeah I have a weird you know definition of family it's not the same as everyone else's like I got my son right here on my leg but my son is a doll that I bought at a store and his name is meat I bought me a year ago now with my ex-girlfriend and he's our son and so I decided I had to get that to money I said this is my relationship with my mom found Lisa it's screaming mom you know because whenever something's going wrong in my life I'm freaking out I call my mom on the phone I stress her the out underneath here says hell boy that's my first mixtape that really caught people's attention and it was very important to me I read the hell with comics and but I just loved him as a character and I love the whole like idea of Brian I think that movie is very underrated I got the Pink Panther actually I had stayed up all night on mushrooms it's not my best friend we took it over to Venice Beach and I was like dude what could I do just to make this like worse and I went into a random tattoo shop when the others pink bedroom got homesick tattooed on me right here on my fingers as I travel a lot you know it's musician and I'm 20 years old so I'm still young and I'm still it's my mommy at certain times I'm from Long Island New York fashion didn't do this there it's just does isn't a thing so that's pretty much where I got my style people would always copy what I did in high school and you know try to dress like me and whatnot and it really pissed me off so I kept changing there almost isn't style because it's just me you know what I mean if I'm feeling really Punk like it's like everything I'll get it weird red anarchy logo on my face or this mood tattoo I don't think there's really one particular style but if I had to choose my favorite it would probably be like cholo style testes I for sure 2015 I got this broken heart I was not feeling today – well I'm very just like out going with it it was kind of like a push for myself to let you successful with like the music I was doing because it can make it harder to get a job when you have interfaces cover in tattoos this is a lucky charm it's just a horseshoe it's just for good luck working really well sometimes you know ed hardy drew this in London for like an exhibition and I decided that I would get a tattooed on me in London as well right after I shaved my head that one really didn't hurt as much as this one which I just really recently got my hair still kind of up from it it's like towards the back of your head more and like the front of your head really is not that bad but the further it gets towards the back just like whoa now my tattoos have kind of become a part of me and when I look in the mirror I just see my face literally when you get it it takes about a week to sink in and then you're like this is just part of me there are people who are like you know get a tattoo on like their forearm and like are like I have to see this every day for the rest of my life but I'm freaking out and I'm like dude I have I woke up with these tattoos this is get cake dot young I woke up with that I had no idea how to even got it I was so up I literally was just like alright that's there this is one of my favorites this is just my mood I turn a mood it's really low quality but that's because my mood is low quality you know anything most people who were to get this but this is like one of my favorite acts so I found myself complaining a lot being very ungrateful for the things that I have in my life and so I got the crybaby tattoo on my face to remind me that I have a really good and there's a lot of people in her food but you know love to be in the position I'm in so it just keeps me really grateful I plan on going from my feet covering all the way everything as much as I can without it like really hurting you know what I mean I don't have any like secure plans I just come up with tattoos like I'll wake up I bet you all want to get tatted today I kind of like looking like a mess and just like what the if you're thinking about it do it and if you like how people look when they're all covered in tattoos and you should be covered in tattoos wake up every day and like look in the mirror and be like holy this is this is sick if I woke up and I didn't have any of my tattoos
