    I got my first 3 hours booked in for 27th July

    I already have this:

    Going to get it touched up so it looks alot more like this hopefully:

    [​IMG]

    On the other side of my arm im getting this but alot darker and coloured ala Giger:

    [​IMG]

    this will go from my wrist to my elbow and fits pretty much perfectly next to the Magus tat i already have.

    il then get this dude coming out from underneith the xenomorph above, below my elbow to fill the gap:

    [​IMG]

    Il prob end up with all the background gaps filled with various Gigerness and behind the Magus tat im thinking of having a wall of alien eggs with a few of them with facehuggers leaping out.

    i also wanna put a facehugger on the magus as i dont like the face anymore. not entirly sure why i got the face on it as iv always liked the way the original doesnt have one ... hmm

    but ya any thoughts?

    dont fully know yet. i have some ideas but i also have 2 more years to come up with ideas. i also want his imput on what he thinks would tie in with what i already have, so i wont fully know till i get there :) i try to not take the normal approach to getting tats. i am 33 and have been DOING tattoos since i was 13. i have had access to a tattoo gun since then. i also gave MYSELF my first one when i was 13. and believe it or not i am NOT covered. i take tats very serious and will NOT get something that is a passing phase on my body, if you know what i mean.

    on and off for what 7 1/2 years, it's fully sleeved now, but I havnt got any decent pics, I'll get teh wife to take some as she has a new digital SLR.

    The work was done by Matt at the Sharp Practice in Salisbury, Wilts.

    Very talented artist, not only with tattoos but airbrushing, painting the works.

    When I get soem new shots Ill post tehm up.

    nice, chiba! did you just give the artist a general idea of what you wanted and he gave you some drawings? I want something big-ish on my shoulders, but I'm not 100% sure what. I want to go in and say "ok, this theme draw me something awesome" - the guy has done all my tattoos. My thing is being able to live with the tat. I haven't had one in over a year :(, still gotta finish up my leg - but i dont regret any of them.

    Tim, it should look pretty cool :yesway:
