I rememeber there was some fashion show on VH1 years ago and Dave was featured on it for a little tiny segment about the woman that designed his coat or something during the SOFAD era. The coat she made him matched that massive tat on his back. He was pointing out his tat's and explaing them. For the life of me I can't remember what the hell he said about them tho. All I remember was that the phone rang and he said it was his wife telling him to bring home cat food and milk. Strange the things I remember and don't!

Do you want to know what's sick. I still have a copy of it. It might be worth it to dig through my closet to find it and relive it! I taped it on my uncut version of "In Your Room" video tape that I got through mail order when it was all the rage. Ahh..the memories of being a deep soulful teenager!

Judging by everyone's misinformed interpretation of "I Need You," the initials with the dagger going through 'em are probably MLG. :P

Yeah you beat me to it !! I just found the clip in the archives. Sadly,he just shows you the tat on his back..no explanation..I thought that he talked about them for some reason. The clip is funny anyway..its called Fashion Cafe..He's really hyper in it!!!

The tattoo with the dagger on hisleft arm...the one with the intials underneath has something to do with his second wife...I forget exactly what the intials stand for...I know it is mentioned in Malin's biography and I can't find the book...UGH
