Jimmy: There’s one brother that designed a tattoo for you.
Alexander: Yes. This was like Christmas eight years ago, and he was 7-years-old and doodling. He just drew a little thing on my leg. We were just hanging out and I took a picture of it. I thought it was kind of cool. Went back to LA and went to a tattoo parlor. I’m the oldest and he was the youngest, so for me it kind of symbolized the family and everything. So I went to the tattoo parlor and said, “I want this on my leg forever - for my family, for my brother.” And I did it, I got it. I didn’t tell him, I wanted to surprise him.

“I’m always looking for something that’s real and that’s got meat on it. I think it’s artistic suicide if you’re too vain, or if you’re afraid to play ugly. I would never fall for that.”
