Tattoos - do you?

Just wondering who has a tattoo?

Got a good story about it?

I turned 50 last January and spent 24 hours getting my left arm "sleeved".

I'm about to start my right arm next month.

I had two little ones that I got when I was in my 20s.

My "plan" for turning 50 was the sleeve and learning to play the piano.

So I got the tattoo and bought a piano. No lessons yet. Soon. Really.

The tattoo will change your appearance, but the piano will change your soul- get on it!

None and never will. But, getting a real Deja Vu here, maybe do a search.

That's impressive work right there. Tattoo's are not for me but I can appreciate them on others.

One thing for sure. You'll 'never' get just one..Finding a great artist is essential.

Boulder INK here in the republic, 'PeeWee' or Lance, if anybody thinking and is local.

mine are home made, ink bottle, needle with thread wrapped around it, tapped by a buddy. sort of prisonish. tats mean something totally different to me. they're not art but markers. My teenage experience is getting pulled over then searched for a tattoo to identify.

Looks great! Looking pretty damn good for 50 as well! (At least from the pics...)

This is very interesting to me. I have no tattoos and have always kinda thought they were cool (except for face, neck, hands, or legs) but the desire as of late (I'm 43)has been getting more and more palpable. Even my wife has given the go ahead and said "Yeah I think one arm sleeve would be hot". Okkkkkayyyy..........

But the biggest deterrent for me not getting one is having kids and telling them NO they can't have one or get one while I'm sportin ink........that sound weird?

Sorry for ramble.

Cool tat and good on ya for wanting to learn to play the keys. I too have always wanted to sit down at a piano and jam.
