A Special Tattoo
Spice has a Klingon Symbol tattoo on her ankle from one of the best! Zulu is her tattoo artist and he is a lover of Klingons!!! She has her Klingon name, “Vixis” at the bottom of the symbol and Qapla’ to the side, written in Klingonise! This tat was at the request of her son, Luke, who felt she should have the “mark of a Klingon!”
In terms of skill, Zulu is considered one of the top artists in his field. His Celebrity-client list includes Janet Jackson, Dennis Rodman, Rosie O’Donnell, Lisa Bonet, David Duchovny, Danny Elfman and Queen Latifah. He speaks proudly of the large works he’s done on local body-art legends,including drag hostess Divinity Fudge and bulldagger photographer Marina Spike. Zulu believes in the process, and his clientele tends to be interested in acquiring a meaningful tattoo. The experience should be interactive to some extent: “I encourage clients to get involved in the creation of their sacred markings as we work together to bring that which is within you to the Surface,” Zulu states.
