my Kiss-story: Wow,,,been a fan since 1975 when my brother brought home Alive!! I used to put that makeup on constantly,,,,,I was Gene always! We used to put on 'concerts',,,spit ketchup, had fireworks, confetti! I used to get picked on at school because I ALWAYS wore a KISS item, be it a t-shirt, belt buckle, necklace, pin, etc. But I didn't care,,it made me strong! I stood up for what I believed in! Now as I've gotten older, I love KISS even more! The reunion was just about the happiest moment of my life!! I have been "dressing" as the "Goddess of Thunder", my alter ego, for the shows since the Psycho Circus tour. I have been put in the front row numerous times by Spiro and Tommy Thayer. There is NOTHING like front row for a KISS concert!! I got BOTH pieces of Paul's broken guitar at 2 different shows,,,I was shaking when I got them!! I have many friends now that dress up with me and go to the shows and conventions. We have a BLAST making "spectacles" of ourselves as we like to call it!
I am going to be a featured fan on an upcoming TV show on the channel VH1 here in the USA,,,it is a documentary on KISS fans, they picked 4 fans to cover. That's how I got to meet Gene and Paul in makeup! They were SO very nice to me!
Kiss tattoos: I have a replica of the "Gene head" rub on tattoo from Alive II on my right ankle, and had Gene recently sign above it and had the signature tattooed on! Also have a Kiss logo on top of left foot
