this tattoo is poking fun at some "hardcore" ppl, in a playful way...some think they're so bad ass, well now here's an actually CORE. an apple core, and he's one mean fucker. I have to finish it off with the words "appleXcore" and I plan to do that when I go to get my 4th tattoo.. Its a very dear tattoo to me, it remingd me of a really good friend. Phoebe. She's the best, the design is hers.
