My chest and stomach is just about covered up. As soon as I get around to getting the background done on the last tat my front torso will be 90% covered.

Both of my upper arms have ink, more coming when my schedule and wallet are friendlier.

There's a way-back old thread on BoB ink with some good pics... I'll scroll back and link it when I find it.

Got a few hours under the needle.
Only one story out of all of them. The Skull in the cowboy hat on my left forearm. Well, when I was in Germany in the Army I got a bit too mouthy after a few shots of tequilla andenderd up with 15 stitches over my eye and forehead. When I got the tattoo one of my eyes was still swollen shut so the artist made the tat have one eye blacked out and the other red with a black pupil.

My wife hates the ones on my chest, one is a pretty lady and the other side is a skull, I jokingly tell people that is my marriage before and after shot. ( I had these before I got married so my wife know I am joking).

I have a girls name covered up twice. I was young and dumb on this one.

I've been meaning to start a thread like this. It took me 44 years but I finally got my first tattoo. In my life I never wanted a tattoo, until a couple of months ago. It is a tribute to my dad who passed away over the summer. I designed it myself. It came to me while I was running. Everything about the tattoo has meaning.

Let's see....

1st was the "speak no, hear no, see no evil" skulls on my left shoulder at age 19. I was an honor roll student, worked, but like to have fun and rock out. Pops was told later and I was pronounced nuts and told I "would regret it." (yeah, Pops got his first tat 10 yrs later...) Originally I had "honesty is my only excuse" underneath, but it was smallish and as time went on, needed to be redone. Tat was a kinda motto for life thing.

2nd was the skull and fingers poking through the same shoulder. This was a friend of a friend who specialized in skulls. As a firm believer in letting an artist go to get the best of them, I told him to just add as he saw fit. He drew on me with a bic pen (black, to be exact) then went to town. It's a shame you can't really see the detail.

3rd was the right shoulder. That's the Guinness harp, with the latin phrase "truth is light" around it. In the background is the sun shining its rays through the harp strings.

Last, thus far, is the larger skull with the flame eye and smoke (covering the honesty phrase) and the arm reaching through my body to rip the skin away revealing the harp and sun.

The last two were done by the same artist, but it was my concept. It's a 'right side is how some people see me....the left side is what lies underneath' motif. The artist took creative license with what I wanted and created, what I think, is a very compelling piece. Whether others feel the same..well, I guess that's really of little consequence.






I think the Victory hop devil will be next, right in the open space behind my neck...

There is a long story behind it with explanation here if anyone cares to read it - very old blog post

I want to get another, and probably another, and maybe another...

Here's some pic's of mine. My first was my dog Yukon that my daughter drew a picture of for artist Troy Simkew of Vernon BC to tattoo for me.




I found out tattoo's are like pipe's, I thought i only wanted one but then you get addicted. Here's # 2 from the same artist.


My last tat was my wedding ring/sleeve. The Japanese kanji say's "Love, Honor, Loyalty" & the skull represents"Till Death".
The symbol on the Samuria & the skull has an emblem on it from a Japanese samuria movie i worked on back in 1990.



My Samuria/Koi Dragon sleeve was done by Lucas Ford from Red Deer AB.

That is epic.

My name translates to "tall tattooed warrior from the dark waters" Eventually I'll have a complete back piece done to that theme.
