Russ Chimes may be better known for his rad remixing skills, but apparently this dude has more talent than meets the ears.

I was going to say that it's making me feel like I want to hide in my room with a note pad and get all 'thinky' and withdrawn, or maybe take a long stroll on a gray afternoon. But, now I kind of want to just go get another tattoo. Maybe putting some ink on a page will suffice after all.
