Th3doctor is back

Hello,

I’m an illustrator and painter who lives in Oregon. I joined the Despair Faction back in 2001 but had to rejoin because my original email expired.
I have the entire bands signatures tattooed on my right arm… well technically my entire right arm is dedicated to AFI.

Thank you.

I was apart of the Dispair Faction back in 2002. Since then I’ve lost everything I had regarding my membership… except the T-shirt. I’m assuming I’d have to rejoin since it’s been so long.

You still have your DF card by chance?

I wish I did, it got lost by an ex in a move. Sad days

If you have a way to verify that you’re DF, just PM me so I can get you verified on here, similar to how I have Verified DF by my name.

I have an empty space on my left sleeve where I was thinking about signatures as well. Just waiting for the vaccination incubation to follow through :slight_smile:

I highly recommend getting those when you can. I did when I met them at a crash love signing.

I was gonna get Adam’s name tattooed… he actually asked me if I was going to get it tattooed when I had him sign my arm. I said yes and he talked me out of it… lol.

He said something like, “think about it… years from now people are gonna say, ‘who’s Adam?’”.

Granted, I believe this was back in 2001 when i first saw them.

On the real though, I’d love to cover my left arm with BSITS waves/water since i already have the ship and clouds.

That’s fair. For me I personally see my tattoos as a chapters in my life. If I’m asked what they mean I’ll just tell them they’re some of the greatest moments in my life.

Hello fellow Oregonian! I’m an old DF member circa 2005 ish. From Northern Cali now on the Oregon coast. Wish I could remember my old DF login. I was very active back then, even made it onto their dvd from the Long Beach Show. Can’t wait to see them in Portland next year!

That’s fantastic to hear you were in the DVD!! I’m obviously extremely proud of you and jealous. If I may ask, where abouts in Oregon do you live? I’m about 4 hours south of Portland.

Ha its a good memory to have. I’m a few hours down the coast as well. Can’t wait to catch them next year, been too long for me!

Awesome. I wish I had the time to go see them again. Last time I saw them was when they were on tour for Crash Love.

Aw I never saw their crash love tour. I can’t remember the exact year of my last show. Sometime around the Long Beach dvd and the Blaqk Audio show at PopScene. Best times of my life!
