  • "The overall piece is meant to be a tribute to Leonardo Da Vinci. 1452, is his birth-date, and on the wrist is a replica of his signature. The pinky is an Aries symbol, which is his zodiac sign as well as an Illuminati symbol. Sometimes Leonardo is given credit for being a forefather of the Illuminati so the finger tattoos are plays on that symbology, the all seeing eye, inverted cross, and 6 pointed star. Da Vinci is known for his symbology in his paintings and I wanted to pay homage." -M
