There is still some healing to finish, but it looks good enough to share. Right arm, finished for now:

I assume that's some kind of LOTR thing?

I was gonna get a tattoo, but my arms are too skinny and of course there's the whole, against my culture, thing.

Nope, nothing Lord of the Rings in it at all, other than the presence of a ring. The symbolism is very personal to me and incredibly meaningful.

Yea, it was the ring that the two eyes (I assume they'e eyes) just reminded me of it. But it's a very cool looking tattoo.

Extremely.

However, you can continue picturing me as a tall, smooth black man if it so pleases you.

I'd rprefer to see the unedited copy of that pool pic.  I missed it the first time you unknowingly posted it.

Yes, they are eyes. Thanks. :) 9 hours totalto complete it from the initial tattoo seven years ago to the shading I had completed last week.

Got the jitters...I have a 4:00 appointment at a place in the East Village...  I've been toying with the idea for a while, and actually going for it was sort of a last-minute/belated birthday thing...

I'll post pics later.

What are you getting?

Offer still stands for designing future work...

And pre-tattoo jitters are awesome; they make the process that much more awesome. (I love getting tattooed, in case you couldn't tell.)

Oh, hyperplex... if I didn't already have a Husband who's good at design stuff I'd so ask you to fix me up!
Husband is good enough, though. He knows what I want, but pushes it so it looks better than I imagine it could be.

I'd still love to do something for you. There's no law that says the same guy has to design every piece you have. It's all good, though; I don't want to step on his turf. ;)

If I got a tattoo it'd probably be John Bonham's trinity logo on my right shoulder/bicep.

A coral snake, wrapped around my right upper arm, below the King Crimson (Tibetan sun/moon) tattoo.

Part of it is practically in my armpit, which hurt like a mother (especially the shading).  2.5 hours in the chair, all said and done.  I could have lasted maybe five more minutes.  Made my previous tattoos seem like childs play...

It looks awesome, and the artist even took pics for his portfolio.

There's a spot on my left calf that I'm reserving for one of yours, I think.  Just have to come up with an idea of what I want.  There's another one I have nearly planned, where I may seek your assistance for part of it, as well.

Hey guys, out of interest, how do you decide on what you want as a tattoo? I've been considering it for some time, but keep being indecisive but obviously need to be absolutely sure of it.


of course there's the whole, against my culture, thing.

So get it somewhere that you can hide it?

hehe. I don't really think he'd mind, though :P And I adore your work (what I've seen).

Tattoos can be quite badass, but are far too permanent for my tastes.  You guys have some awesome looking ones though. :tup

Don't remember who had what, but whoever had that King Crimson one is badass  :metal
I know Mike Portnoy has one, but I forgot if anyone on here as a Frank Zappa mustache tattoo, 'cause those are awesome

And like I said before, I'm strongly leaning towards getting John Bonham's trinity symbol on my shoulder/bicep

Personally, I want my tattoos to be unique to me, rather than related to something else. I've designed all of mine and that makes them more perosnal to me.

I tend to create my designs and then put them some place where I'll see it for several hours every day for about 6 months (like my desk at work). If I still love it and want it after that time, I'm usually pretty sure it'll be good in my skin.

That's quite a good idea actually.

I sort of co-opted the KC tattoo...more than a statement of love for the band, it's about the aesthetic that the band's music from that era represents:  Something fragile and delicate, within something corrosiver and acidic.  Beyond the aesthetic, to me it is also more broadly about my own duality, embracing both the primal and the intellectual, and having them be in harmony rather than opposition.

Generally, I will see an image that somehow resonates with me.  Gradually, the image will evolve in my mind, and I put a finer point on what it means to me.  Given enough time, I will have an image that means enough to me that I will want to make it a part of me.  Unfortunately, I lack the motor skills the even draw a straight line when aided by a ruler, to say nothing of drawing a tattoo, so I have to rely on others for help with the image itself.

I have a four leaf clover on my right back/hip and a kanji symbol for prosperity on the back of my neck. Both solid black.
