The design and themes of my tattoos: The general design and theme for my tattoos, pretty much al fell into place, tattoo by tattoo. I feel that in order to have a great "flow" in one's tattoos. They first need to start of with a great quality artist, and slowly but surely, piece together tattoos that look nice with one another. Mine started off with mostly Japanese or neo Japanese tattoo designs, but i then ventured off into american traditional, black and grey portrait, and new school designs. I love seeking out a particular artist specifically for a style that they excel in. My collection is starting to be an eclectic one, but it is a collection that has won many different awards in conventions, and i am proud of them!
More specifics about my tattoo: Each tattoo that i have has a special meaning to me of corse. Some may not be because "my great grandfather's sisters, aunts, nephew, died in WW2 and i need to get this rose" but simply because i wanted a kickass tattoo from a great quality artist. While some of them mean a great deal mentally than others, some were, just for fun, or silly, or celebrating friday the 13th. either way, i never skimp on quality. I have made many friends along the way in the tattoo industry "my tattoo family" if you will. and it will always be a subject that i have grown to absolutely adore. I love the constant want and desire we all feel to get a tattoo or save up for their dream artist, or dream tattoo, or getting old ones touched up, finishing work, the constant flow, it is exciting and i feel that it shows in my tattoos as well was my personality.
My favorite tattoo and the story behind it: I got a portrait of Raymond Burr (the actor who played perry Mason) on my right calf. I used to watch that show religiously with my grandmother, needless to say it impacted me in a big way, associating great and funny times with my grandma makes me smile! In the meantime i got a great tattoo from a great artist (Zac Lefty Colbert, Infamous ink Waco TX)
My next tattoo: I jumped from my small little pineapple on my ankle, directly to a very large koi fish cascading down the whole left side of my ribs. I loo back on it now and feel like i was young and dumb ti make such a drastic decision, but i have always been in the "go big or go home" fashion. After two sittings, Dale Callahan out of his now private studio in Lebanon Pennsylvania, finished the job, and i have been in love with it ever since
