"Show Dem Tat's" Contest

So Mr. NO_H2O is the inspiration for this thread. He just got himself the first GL tat i have seen. Let's see some other tat's. Doesn't have to be GL, just a chance for you to show off some artwork. I am about 10 years into the undecided realm of what to etch on my body myself.

[EDIT] This just became a contest. Contestants need to post their entries in this thread. As there is no way to validate if this is really the their tatto, everyone needs to just play fair or you will be hunted down and brought to GL justice. This thread and therefore the contest will be closed at some time around, but not before, the end of September. I will then post a thread with a poll for enduser voting. Voting will be open for about 2 weeks and the high amount of votes wins.

Prize set is a GermanLook.com baseball hat, member mini-lam, and a window sticker as seen in the Gear store. Winner will need to cover shipping though. Good luck to all! [/EDIT]

Nothing fancy like I have seen before, but this was done by a friend the last time I went to visit S.Africa. He asked me what I wanted. I said :" I dont realy know, you know!?". "Well, because this is permanent, I am not even going to touch you if you dont REALY want something you like". Took me some time to decide, and when I did, I had a tough job convincing my friend that I made the choice not under peer pressure!!! Anyway, here it is(on right shoulder):

It just 'spoke to me'. Not into mythology etc. Just like it.

He said afterwards that it is a good choice, because if I wanted to, I could get it 'developed' into something bigger later...

If I would go for another on the left shoulder, it would be this:

Not VW related but here goes...
I'm not into reptiles, don't have any as pets, just like the look of the skeletons.

Arm band. Wraps ALL the way around. My tat guy said quickest way to tell how tough a guy is by where on the arm he said "WHOA!".




Center of my back. Two pics to give idea of size and detail. Tats on the spine not recommended! I had to take a break about half way through, grinding on those bones made me dizzyuke: .

Jeff-
I had a nice chat with my mate while he was busy with mine about tattoos and stuff. So I asked him where is the most painful place to get ink. He said, no doubt, on the skull and underarm/inner bicep! So I tend to believe that, based on Panelfantastic's assesment too! We went on having converstation about the most interesting tattoos he has done, and he went ahead telling me about this girl that 'opened the doors' and got some ink.........[graphic detail snipped]

I know the feeling Jeff, three hours a piece . Sorry about the shameless Tattoo shop plug . The Tattoo's weren't that bad to sit through, but I have been told i'm not very smart .

The graphic novel hero Sandman on my shoulder:

On the inside is an owl, a ghost house, the year I was born and some other minor stuff:

They are between 8 and 4 years old and I still love them
