    This is from a few weeks back. I decided to get one image tattooed across both feet. The art is based on Dionysus, the Greek god of wine and ritual madness. His animal form was often represented as a sepent, he carried a thysus staff, and wore fox skins in human form. I gave my artist (Matt Lambdin) full run of those ideas.

    My toe nails spell out IRONCLAD, the name of the studio I got it done at haha.

    I dig this for four reasons:

    1) Artwork is fantastic
    2) Placement/orientation is unique
    3) Big fan of greek mythology
    4) My surname is pretty rare, so it makes me happy when I see it.

    Happy New Ink Day!

    Matt is the god damn man! Small world. I've hung out with him a couple of times because I'm good friends with the guys in And Hell Followed With. He's done some work on a couple friends of mine and he's fantastic.

    Also, feet tattoos suck dick.

    I am debating on having Matt do my torso. I already have a ton of appointments booked for tattoos this summer from guys I have been trying to collect from for a while, so it's a ways a way.

    I really love his style. I might try to get tattooed by him the next time I'm up there, if I can plan far enough in advance. I want to get my torso done soon as well. A few of my friends who have theirs done have said it put them out of getting tattooed for a long time because it was so terrible. Good money saver, I guess. :lol:
