As suggested by Turd in some other thread. Thought it sounded like a good idea, and since everyone seems to be in the posting pictures mood these days... Here we go.

My newest, being done by george atEverlasting tattoo, here is SF
This is after the 6th session.

Nice, I have a back piece with Balinese figural demon, not going to show, scary.

I like that.

Have to hook up a scanner, I do have one, just not on the desktop.

Mine is more to the modern primitive style, you gotta re-post when the color is finished.

I only have a couple pieces. One on my arm, the other on my calf. Both designed by me, though the first involved some serious character development, reworking into sketches, and scanning and retracing to get the final product. Big thanks to my friend Juan for the sketches. The second is my dog, it's the same image that I used for my avatar.

The only ink I have on me is a blue spot on my right shoulder where my older brother accidently stabbed me with a fountain pen when I tackled him while he was doing homework.

damn, that back piece is smokin'! anyway, here's mine. it looks a lot better than this pic, cos i just threw my arm on the scanner, and since it's on my forearm, i had to twist my arm a bit awkwardly. it's the only one i've got right now, but my roomie's a tattooist so i'll get the hookup soon... i just gotta design something cool...

oh yeah, it's a fly circling a lightbulb. i drew it one day, thought it looked cool, and held on to it for a few years til i finally got it done about three years ago...

You all might recognize some of the characters and designs on my arm. A free smiley face to the first person to figure the main ones out. In the pics the chain looks all messed up. I guess that's because I had to twist my arm around to get the right light. It doesn't look like that in person.
The back is just the first step of my whole back piece. We just started on it recently.
My left calf is the Monkey King (Sun Wu Kong), if you've ever heard of him...

Gally - is that Alita?

Sweet ink, people. Dirtydan, yours is particularly excellent.

No ink on me yet, but it's just a matter of time.

Fantastic koi, 165! Can't believe I didn't get to see those before. Is that what you were getting done at the place on Belmont (uhh... Chicago Tattoo and Piercing IIRC) ?

Yeah, theres still a lot to go on the piece. Probably 6 or 7 more sessions, and there will be some BG spaces filled up and other things added onto it.

yeah, its green tara. Post up your pics if you get a chance.

VERY hot butterflies turd...I have see some similar sweet Japanese-style back pieces on women. Well done

Additionally - gally99 - nice coverage. My fav - the simplicity of your first.
And hands down to dirtydan - not sure what to say. Excellent.

how else do you get missionaries to leave you alone?
funny story, actually. i was getting that one dun in kentucky (wtf?) and the artist (who had done 3 other tats of mine) needed a 9V battery so she could copy the art. i went down to the corner store, and bought a battery, a bottle of tea, something else, and the lady at the register said "the total is... hmmm, i don't like that number... six dollars and sixty six cents!" i paid, said thank you, and can i have a receipt?
