Moi. Tämä olikin tänne julkaistu ilman lupaani, mutta eipä haittaa. Voi olla että näin on hieman vaikea löytää tekijää heh :) Kiitos palautteestasi! Olen todennäköisesti luennoimassa Thirteen festivaaleilla aiheesta, jos tarkentavien kysymysten esittäminen kiinnostaa.'

Hou! Aika mainiota, että olet dokumentoinut tätä tarinaa pätkän, näinkin korkeatasoisesti. Olen päässyt läheltä seuraamaan stooria itsekkin, ja olen miettinyt, jääkö tästä mitään historiaan.. Tässä nyt ainakin yksi stoori..Huippua! T:Mika(Tampereen tatuoija) Ilmaniemi
