When All Is One and One is All....

I met Monica outside of my office on Broad Street last week and instantly recognized the lyrics on the back of her neck. She was kind enough to let me take a photo:

This is, of course, the penultimate line in Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven."

Why these lyrics? Monica elaborated:
"[There are] lots of reasons ... the short version, I guess ... obviously I love Led Zeppelin, rock and roll, but that moment of that song is one of the most powerful feelings that I would like to always feel."
As if you needed convincing, take a few minutes and watch this classic footage from the concert film The Song Remains the Same (the lyric appears at 9:55):

This was tattooed by Kevin Jang (@BlackFishTattoo) at Black Fish Tattoo on 32nd Street in Manhattan.

Thanks to Monica for sharing this rocking tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!
