Nathan Boxdorfer got a cross for his first tattoo. But it wasn’t until a year later he realized it didn’t mean anything to him. Once he went to college, he started questioning if God existed.

Now six years later, he redid his tattoo. It suits him more now – with a landscape that shows his love for the outdoors and conservation, which he has made into a living, working at Forest Park.
