Since I made a thread about my third sleeve I guess I should throw up some pics of the first two.

Both pics were during progression, they aren't complete yet but pretty close. I have a lot of tattoo work done tho, both arms, full back, 2/3 of my legs.

I know they are. You said you had 2/3 of your legs done. I was just stating all the legs. Hahaha.

It is Sanskrit, from India. The symbol is Om or Aum, represents the creator, preserver, destroyer (liberation) or the complete cycle of life - whatever. It is a meditation on existence and the 'Word' itself is a mantra.

You will see it as a tat on many ppl, not necessarily Hindu.

^ What he said. hah.

For me it is to help me remember to "breathe" daily. "Breathe" being one of the mantras this symbol stands for. It's a reminder to stay true to myself and the universe. To stay centered and focused/

MY NEW TAT

Well, I have observed that tattoos may be addictive. I just got my newest.

Today I added a Florida illustration, because I have been here off-and-on since 1975

Actually, it is to balance the last one I got, which illustrated two cities that influenced my life, St. Louis & New Orleans.

I'm thinking of getting a tattoo, what are your thoughts on white ink? And does anyone have any?

I heard it does not last. All my tats are in black ink, but one (without me knowing) got hi-lited in white ink. It was the Mobius strip (infinity).

It is a small tat and barely noticed but that is when my friend told me it wouldn't last anyhow. He wanted to get a golf ball tat and learned that white ink is not long-lasting.

Thanks Shale, I do prefer the blank ink and if I got a tatt I wouldn't want it to fade so quickly. Thought I'd consider all options though, was looking at something like this...

Shale is absolutely correct. It won't last long. The photo on the left was last June when I first got the tattoo, the right is now. Notice the tips of the flowers and the teeth. Same with reds and pinks. They tend to fade faster.

Are you sure that's a white tattoo? It looks like branding to me.

Personally, for me, I wouldn't get a white tattoo. Most tattoo artists would tell you the same thing. Like Mama and Shale said...they fade so fast. I just don't see the point. I think they look cool when they are first done but you have to enjoy it fast before its gone. If I'm going to pay for and go through the process of a tattoo I want it to last.

I did a "repositioning" cruise across the Atlantic in April and was at sea for 11 days - the most time I ever went without seeing land.  I was also thrilled going thru the straits of Gibraltar.  Even tho it was at night and the rock was just a shadow in the dark, I could see the lights on the shores of two continents at the same time. 

 

So, to commemorate this first event I got a tat in Barcelona. (also the first tat gotten outside of the U.S.)

Just got back from a 9-day stay in Italy.  I was there 40 years ago, so I was gonna get a tat there commemorating it, but had artistic differences with the artist and it never happened.  However, back in Miami Beach for one day I got the tat done by artist Sara Della Torre, an Italian from Milano where I spent most of this trip in Italy. So, I guess Mission Acomplished.

Just had this tat done yesterday while in vancouver! It is a salmon. I went to a shop recommended by ashalicious. I'm thinking of having some colour added later, but I like it as is too.

Imagine it less sideways. I had it facing that way so it looks like it's swimming upstream, up my leg.
