Bill "Muthafuckin" Murray ladies and gentlemen...

Dear Mum...

I have been invited to be part of a Bill Murray exhibition at Gallery 1988 in California.  We have been asked to do our own interpretation of Bill in one of his many great movies, so I chose his 1981 comedy "Stripes".
And because I live in New Zealand where our indigenous people are maori who traditionally tattooed their faces to symbolise their rank within their tribes , traditionally known as "ta moko". combined with my work as a tattoo artist I thought, "you know what?! I'm gonna tattoo Bill Murrays face!!"

So here he is, I hope you like!
