Murakami tattoo, submitted by Nikole from Las Vegas, inspired by The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle and Norwegian Wood:
"In WUBC, it seems like whenever people hear the call of the wind-up bird, they lose control of the situation they are currently in. I concentrate on having an internal locus of control, and accept responsibility for my faults and think about what I could have done better rather than trying to blame external factors (without ignoring the obvious, of course). In Norwegian Wood, Toru often describes how he must wind himself up every day in order to keep going. Boiling it down to the bare bones, the bird represents responsibility of my own life and motivation to keep living it.”
Tattoo by Mike Biggs of Studio 21.
