so, inspired by the recent hair thread, lets see y'alls tats, that's "tats" not "tits".

Heres my most recent, got it a few days ago, recently my dog died unexpectedly, he was my brother as i was an only child, and prolly knew me better than any human... so here's his commemoration.


this is my little prince, if you don't know the story, it's beautiful. means alot of things, but in short, it was frequently read to me as a child.

it was a blast haveing this while working at an iron fabrication company... "why do you have a fairy on your arm" "why are you illiterate?"
and i don't have a great pic on this comp, but here's half of my sleeve. it's also a long story, as most tattoo's are, but this one is still growing.....

This is my most recent, added a couple wave lines since it was done. 8 colors, the artwork is from a native guy in the Canadian Pacific Northwest, the work is by Donna at Art With A Pulse in Colorado Springs.

That's a nice tatt JR, I've seen heaps of crap dog tatts but that looks great. Nothing like a tatt to keep a memory alive.
Here's a pic of my dragon, it's on the inside of my arm from my elbow to my wrist. When I'm riding in jacket and gloves it still manages to poke it's nose out. I have a few more but I've only got a pic of this one.

Branded, Nice Dfib. Sorry 'bout you're dog JR, too bad they can't live as long as we do. Nice tat though. I've yet to have any done, I've thought about a couple, but I havn't really stuck with any of them. The ones I think I'll get is a kanji for my family with some japanese artwork, possibly a cherry tree branch with blossoms or A Dutch crest to honor my Dutch heritage and grandfather for whom I'm named after. He had no son's so the Roelof name'll die eventually.

Thanks trip, yeah, i spent a whole night drawing it, going back and forth between ink, photoshop and illustrator. my mom says it looks just like him when he would first hear my bike coming down the street.
sweet dragon as well, i love dragon tats, just somethin about dragons, i keep trying to work up the guts to go below t-shirt line on my arm, but i'm just not ready to do it yet,, do you feel you get disciminated against for it?

Thanks JR, I was a bit worried about going below my elbow but people hardly seem to notice it. A long sleeved shirt still covers it. They are so common here now. I can't get over the amount of neck tatts people have. The only people who give me a funny look are guys in singlets with a tiny tatt on there shoulder.

Yes. Small stream fly fishing for trout is my other addiction.

Hey Goat wanna make a trip to WI so we can use you for IV practice? Those are some big honkin veins! I'll bet I could get the paramedic students to provide you with one hell of a drunk in exchange for a night of practice!

Here are mine.

Left Arm:


Right Arm:




He DeFib - You guys could use me as an advanced course - Every time I get blood drawn, it takes them two or three tries in each arm before they go back and get the best person in the shop.

It always gets a laugh when they start to ask me if I'm afraid of needles, then taper off halfway through the question.
