I hope you all take the time today to congratulate yourselves on helping to build something as special and as wonderful as the KHK. This wouldn't be possible without every single one of you.

KH Fan Tattoo of the Month - Adam Falkor
What is the tattoo / where is it?
The tattoo is the sniper heart and “Carpe Diem Semper viva” written in Mat’s handwriting down the inside of my right forearm. I hope to expand upon that in the future onto the other side of my forearm.
How long have you had it?
I’ve only just had it done about a week ago; actually I’m still waiting for it to completely heal.
What inspired you to get that design?
The design had a specific purpose and meaning to me, I always wanted the words and the heart but I never expected to be able to get it in Mat’s writing. It was only thanks to the fantastic Lisa Humphrey that that happened, I told her one night months ago what I wanted to get done, cause the original plan was just to get it done in a traditional swirly tattoo style font and she came straight back saying that she’d send it to Mat in the off chance of him writing it out if I’d be interested in having it done inhis handwriting. Having seen some of his beautiful writing tattooed on a couple other people I jumped at the chance. Within an hour Mat had replied and she sent me the picture of it all written out for me. Eventually I want to move onto the rest of the forearm with the bleeding butterfly surrounded by other butterflies and colourful flowers… you know… traditional manly tattoos
Is there a story behind it you would like to share?
I specifically wanted to have the tattoo on my right forearm because that way it’s always there visible to me when I’m playing guitar on stage. A lot of kids come to me and the other members of my band for advice and kinda look up to us in a way, it’s a great message to share with them, even in this week I’ve had a lot of kids come to me and ask me what my new tattoo means, and I get to share it’s meaning with them, which I thinks kinda cool.
Does it have any special meaning to you?
Yeah it does, it reminds me of a very important friend who has the same writing written around a sniper heart tattoo, they’ve made a huge diference to my life so it’s nice to have something that reminds me of them and coupled with my wrist tattoos I guess I’m kinda a walking billboard of great inspirational phrases. But I do find that due to that it really inspires me not to give up my dreams and not to let a single moment pass me by.
