First up in our BKB Tattoo Stories series – BKB climber Mike. He has multiple tattoos, but the one that stuck out in particular was his tattoo of Batman with a cartoon caption.
“I started climbing a couple of weeks ago, at least methodically. I was born in Russia but grew up in Brooklyn. This Batman tattoo represents my friend that passed away – his nickname was Batman because he was a super genius, an astrophysicist, and my mentor. “We are going to do big things…” was the last text message I ever got from him. I keep it as a constant reminder that we all have the ability to do superhuman things, and as a promise that I’m going to keep to him”
