"Your mohawk looks incredible! I just had to run after you because you look outstanding- and now I even get to see your neck tattoo, which I think is awesome as well!"
How did she react?
She looked down for a second, then looked up and said: "Thank you!"
How did I feel?
Nadine was beautiful. Her green Mohawk shone from ten feet away and caught my attention instantly. When I approached her I spotted a tattoo around her neck: three lines of barbwire. It looked super cool. I loved how Nadine seemed a bit shy in the beginning but lit up throughout our conversation until finally she turned into a smiling, chatty woman. With a wink in her eye she told me she was a political refugee from Zurich who had found her home in Kreuzberg, Berlin. And that she was just coming back from shopping a few additional colors for her hair at a local record store, the gore tex: Apricot and yellow for her left head side and blue and green for her right one. Her left will get a leopard pattern and the right a zebra one. I dug that idea! Her hair is art. I hope I will cross paths with her again when she's done dying her hair. Good luck with that, Nadine!
Nadine was not cool with her picture being taken but she was ok with me drawing her. Well, I tried.. :)
