| Heather has a dream.
Ever since an early age, I was heavily influenced by the movies of John Waters. I remember as an overweight child, knowing I could be glamorous because of the "role models" of his films. I remember giving my stuffed animals the most absurd random names I could fathom because of his characters. I remember at 9 breaking open a sparkly baton with some friends, and drinking the contents from martini glasses because we were "drapes." Even as an adult I can't get enough of watching his films, reading his books, and seeing any live performance in close proximity. A couple of years ago, I had a reoccurring dream in which John Waters was a "space octopus," shooting lighting from his tentacles. I decided this was a perfect tribute to my favorite artist of all time, and got the image tattooed on my body. I hope to one day "share my vision" with him!
