Forever and ever. Need to get an Archer tattoo, weird If I got a 16 year old lorde tattoo tho.#boundaries” One day later she took the plunge and visited the famous Los Angeles tattoo parlor Shamrock Social Club where artist Louie Perez put her idea into ink.  The tattoo depicts the show’s title character Sterling Archer with his arm outstretched holding a gun.

    “Father forgive them, for they know not what they do. the rulers sneered at Him saying, “if thou be the king, save thyself”
    I’ve had to forgive those who have caused me great agony & knowing that no one else could have possibly saved me, I have saved myself. I have prevailed… against all odds. These words, are for you, my angel… placed in the same spot your scars marred your belly… the transplants that scarred your precious, little body. I couldn’t save you, but I saved myself… #rip”, she captioned her tattoo Instagram post.

    LIGHTS Poxleitner


    Lights’ very first tattoos were the sparrows on her hips which she got as a symbol of moving away from home.  She explains: “I had just moved away from home and I was 18. I was living in Vancouver at the time and I moved to Toronto, so it’s a big move, it’s like L.A. to New York. I was kind facing the world on my own for the first time and my parents probably would have never let me get a tattoo but I moved out, like ‘I’m a free bird.’ So I got [on my hips] — it’s super cliché, but I got two sparrows. From this hole in the wall place and I was underage. The guy wasn’t that great. But it was exciting because it was my first tattoo.”

    Why a sparrow? “I never get anything that doesn’t mean something.  The sparrow travels the world but always knows how to get home. And a sparrow is a love bird. They find their partner and they stay with them forever. They’re a really loyal bird. It just had a really cool story behind it.”
