    An unfinished piece on my left leg, but I will be getting it finished soon.. My artist was out for a decade!! We started this 10 years ago. I will be getting more work on it next week though.

    Funny, because Im a christian, but I love horror movies and evil looking art! Go figure. Sometimes I wish I didnt have it because I get dirty looks now and then, but its just art to me so I just learned to let it go.

    I'm a "christian" - but for the past few years, i havent given it much thought. perhaps i should.

    I'm debating a leg sleeve on my right leg, it'd be a spruce tree taking up the front on an island, with the first third or so of a 19th century ship going out from either side, on waves.

    my incredibly rough sketch is with dave (my artist) at the tattoo shop. i said i'd hold off till january 2009 for another one, so i have loooots of time to think about it haha.

    Yeah, think about it a lot before jumping in. I was 19 and just oozing to get ink, I have 5 now. This one was not supposed to be like this, but because the artist is my friend, I told him to go freehand and just make a cool piece, it was supposed to be bio-mechanical flames with a couple of skulls, but this is what he drew with the pen and I loved it and said go for it. For a while there I wished I never did any tattoos but now Im going to jump in full force and do a full arm piece.

    oh, im already in ;) - got one, and 3 weeks later i got 2 more. $44o (incl. tip) in 3 weeks on ink...

    [​IMG] (needs updating - its healed and most of that black is now grey fogging, and the red isnt there).

    [​IMG] - same story as the treble clef, only its not finished healing yet

    [​IMG] - my baby :wub:. just a little bit of dead skin left to go, and the heat rash is nearly gone :D. the progress pics of this one are insane. and its going in dave's portfolio :D

    and i have my idea for my next one already :lol:. as dave said, i'm addicted. im trying to avoid sleeves on my arms, but for some reason i dont mind going to down on my legs :scratch:. what started out as a simple small birthday present to myself has turned into something bigger. im trying not to get any on my upper body, because im pretty sure that'd be the end of me haha.

    you guys are crazy :lol:

    my right leg sleeve design is a spruce tree/pine tree done in the style of "where the wild things are" on an island with waves at the bottom by my ankle. two 19th century ships with 1/3 visiable coming out from the sides around my leg, and possible the water going all the way around and the lighthouse at my hometown's pier on my calf.

    wont be even starting it until i pay off the custom though. im not into the evil tats thing much :lol:
