Ran Maclurkin, The Grim Ruiner tattooist.

Ran Maclurkin

The Grim Ruiner

Is it actually anything? A cog in your head, tattooed eyes, a broken back repaired with steel and bone. It has little care from the mundane, yet utmost sympathy for the fallen. Death is to be run from, for as long as one can run. An average fabricator, a competent mechanic, willing to just fucking do it, very little time for that which it does not like, new is generally shit, old is to be respected and life is a single shot of alcohol .

Enjoy it, and fuck your fame, its all in your mind.

God is a dream created through fear.

Satan is an amusing idea.
