The story behind this little sea creature is long, but meaningful. Jon Bang Bang who owns the shop explained it the inspiration behind the drawing in Inked Magazine

“He was telling me that there was a transformation for him with his career decisions when he was swimming in Saint John. He spotted this turtle with a chunk missing from its fin and a scar on his face. And that turtle let him swim with him for about a half an hour. He made a transcending decision right after that. So that turtle was pretty significant to him."

Who wouldn't be thrilled to swim with a sea turtle? But Michael didn't just walk in with a picture. It took about 6 weeks of collaborating before he got inked. So if you're thinking about getting one no need to rush. Remember Michael is 57 years-old so it's never too late.
