A New Tattoo

>> Saturday, August 1, 2009

Ever since Oldest Son M was 12 he has been fascinated with tattoos. At first it was just the art , but as he grew older it was the entire process of getting one and the artist who created them.

Whenever there was/is a tattoo show on TV he would/will stop whatever he was doing just so he could/can watch it. He has read and studied about many famous tattoo artists ,to the point that when he sees a tattoo he can tell you who the artist was.

Last school year for his graphic design class he had to make a slid show presentation and he picked famous tattoo artists. Because of his subject matter he had to get special permission from his teacher to do his research here at home. the reason being that the school blocks most of the sights he needed to look at to find his information. He spent many long hours searching for and then narrowing down images. In the end it was all worth it because he ended up with some of the most amazing and beautiful tattoo designs I have ever seen.

Because of his love of tattoos it came as no surprise when he took a good chunk of the money he got for his 18 birthday and got inked himself.

It's on the back of his right arm and this photo does not do it justice at all. In person it has this almost 3D effect.

Very cool! I love tattoos! I have two of my own and I'm dying to get another. But i feel that it should represent something important and meaningful, and I just haven't come up with that thing yet. Been about 3 years since my last one. Anyway, awesome tat!!!
