Here's my first tat. The image on the left is the original which was drawn by my oldest son on his birthday last year. Saved a pic of it and took it to the shop last month. Can't wait to add some from my other kids as they get older. Also working on designing a memorial piece for my grandpa in the next couple months.
whoa. dang that is just fantastic!
I have already looked at some designs I am happy with.
The tatts would be ok around the elbow area as far as formal dress is concerned. I roll my sleeves up at work but can roll according to the tatts if required.
Am thinking of getting two half sleeves. Anyone have that? Any ideas/tips?
Good thing about the larger ones, oftentimes you don't finish them in a single sitting, so you can typically pay for each sitting of work. A sleeve, large back piece, etc...get the outline done first, pay for it. Wait awhile, then go step 2...
That way, you can get started, don't spend or require as much up front, and it encourages you to keep moving forward since you've started.
My New Tattoo
Thanks Fred, I've seen too many people and heard too many stories about having regrets after it was done. It's my reminder to myself to always bounce back, I've always considered myself a ride out and meet the storm type of person not one to wait for it to hit so it seemed very fitting.
Now my only problem is I have the bug!
Just got my first tattoo on my left pec oddly enough it was partially inspired by AOM. A few months ago I rediscovered a poem that I had all but forgotten about that I studied in High School. Invictus by William Ernest Henley was a great poem I analyzed then and it has really resonated with me lately. I waited a couple months to see if it was just a passing fad but it wasn't and without further ado, here it is:
