Definitively one of the weirdest tattoo I've ever had. It happened I was goin to a demonstration wih my small group, a group of that area that is now called "BLACK BLOC". The point is we were anti globalization and anti capitalism, but we didnt Want to be identified with the mass of communists that organized the demonstration. In the Middle of us there were ultranationalists, far right individuals as anarchists and antiglobalization in general. We were there to protest against G8, it was soon after Seattle and Goteborg, and we were against economical centre of power like Bildeberg, Trilateral Commission etc. Well, to be different from the communist demonstrators we adopted some rules: only dress in black, With Black boots, Black military pants, black sweaters with the hood to use to cover our faces together with a Black bandana. The riots started immediately. Me and my group were focused in destroying symbols of the globalization as Banks, job agencies, police stations... the smell of molotov gasoline used by us and of gas used by cops was filling everything and soon we heard a demonstrator was killed by cops in Piazza Alimonda, kinda far from us: me and my small all black Group avoided the big riots to go on fighting against symbols. I remember another rule was to speak only English between us. And The Last rule: when we left the place we had to burn in a pyre all our black clothes and dressing casual go back at the metro and avoid cops. I was wearing my Pennywise: "FUCK AUTHORITY" sweater, that reproduced the logo, like the one on the left of the photo. I had to burn it too not to be recognized by the footage, but some days after I decided to Mark my body with that symbol always to remember my GENOVA 2001, WITH BLACK BLOCK.
