What's the story behind your choice of the design?

Just curious is all...


It's no secret that I love and revere reggae music.

More importantly, it's for my son Jacob who will be two on 3/11. He's my little lion. It's like how the anchor is for my other son...who truly is my anchor and keeps me tied down and aware.

Jacob's also named for Jacob Miller, so it all kind of ties in.

Nice!

I'm not a big fan of tatts myself, but I always love knowing the stories behind people's choices - especially when it is something as well thought-out as this. :)

So the redhead says "What do you want for father's day?"

:coffee:

It's on. I've got a consultation this week for another. It's going to be a custom piece based on my oldest daughter's likes and personality traits and how they tie into me. This one's going to be fun.

I was able to get in early. It was nice to be able to get it on Father's Day!!! It's sideways so it might look like an alien with flames shooting out of its ass, but it's really a note with rockabilly flames. My daughter came and watched. Nice rock n roll bonding experience.

Thanks Dave. This one was for her and she was involved in the whole process. She picked out the design and finalized it. No matter what it looks like, it's for her, and by her, and that makes it special.

Nice. Ties in well with the tat below it. I like that the meanings of all these tie into family, music and your way of life. Style.

Long ago, a sailor would get a swallow tattoo after successfully sailing a certain amount of miles (obviously a great deal of miles, but I'm not sure exactly how many).


This was definitely a factor in choosing the swallow. I've covered many miles recently...
