“But as I went farther into my passions, that fear was becoming curiosity, and that hatred became love.”

“Years later, having started my blackout tattoos, I saw a very similar thing happen all over again.”

Throughout his years of posting, however, there isn’t a short of negative comments from observers.

Remy wrote, “I’ve been around awhile, and so it’s no surprise that there are some people who are ‘sick of me’ or sick of seeing this project. That’s okay. I’ve got thick skin (physically and of course metaphorically speaking).”

“My project is nowhere near finished, so plan to be a lot more ‘sick of me.’”

Speaking about why he blacked out, Remy explained that he didn’t have any offensive tattoos that he was trying to cover up.

“I found that I didn’t really want to stop,” he shared in a video. “I know with blacked out; I can continue tattooing.”

That was how he started blacking out parts of his body and then added new tattoos again over them. People were always amazed at what he managed to pull on what seemed like a finished project. One wrote, “I’m consistently fascinated by your tattoo journey! Every time you post, I always think, ‘wait, he can do MORE??’ and it’s so beautiful. Props to you and your artist!”

He also jokes about his ear piercings, “It’s either modern art or a finely aged cheese.”

Remy also has a son in his teenage years, often featured in the videos he shared on Instagram. When asked if he’s going to get him tattoos or piercings, Remy answered, “If he wants to get tattoos and piercings like I did, he’ll have my blessing, but if he doesn’t, that’s fine too.”

“It will be his decision, and in either case, he’ll have my full support, the same as any parent should give.”

“It’s honestly a little sad that we even have to wonder these things; family of all things should be unconditional.”
