my artist hit me up yesterday, wants me to come in on Sunday for the photo session, now that my arm's had over a month to heal. perhaps i'll post some of them when he sends 'em to me.

meantime, Josh...make with the #1s.

A traditional bee with red wings for my queen bee with red hair. "Resistance is Futile" is our motto, and is inscribed on the inside of my ring. I think it came out badass.

The musical note in the end didn't come out well. The lady who did it did a shit job. It's going to need to be totally redone. :undecided:

You mean it's not symbolic of your personal growth from an ugly worm underground in the dark into a beautiful flying creature reaching for the clouds and light of the sun?

Need to keep this one. Tried getting an appt with Ren Sakurai here in PDX but no go. Still need to have Lola design something for me when the idea hits me.

Had a consult with a custom artist...getting a piece done Wednesday night for our youngest daughter...super traditional. I gave him some references, and he's running with it.

Sounds like my left sleeve. I had a few pictures and requirements, and Zam painted a masterpiece melding my requests with his unique vision. We're gonna do likewise on my right...I have my scene set, he'll realize it and fill in the gaps.
