My new sarcastic motto: for a good time, tattoo your spine!
More like: if you would like to feel real pain, tattoo words on your vertebrae.
It's all of "the Road", with a 3D, cracked and weathered map of the world. Then FTHC is in the corner (and Frank, even if you're like "don't do that, it pledges allegiance to me instead of my work", meh. It wouldn't feel right to put your words on there and not give you credit, and even if I disagree with you sometimes...just makes things interesting)
Stage 2 is shading of the continents, and the addition of a wicked sweet compass to balance out the FTHC.
I'm gunna go rest. Jet lagged, tattooed, hungry and I didn't cross the dateline, so only 5 hours ahead. Don't worry, Darlene, I'm being verrrrrry careful :)
Wow - love this, looking forward to seeing the completed version

Why thanks you guys! I'm excited too!

I already panicked about the transfer; I thought the whole thing was backwards. Here is a better shot:

Haha! If you sat through that tattoo, I'm not worried. I feel very at peace about you (St. Christopher is watching over you; he's just having a hard time keeping up!)

So. Your tattoo. Just fucking, WOW. Perfectly suited for you. Now, you just need to find a gorgeous Sheik to keep it lotioned up. :wink:

Can't wait to see next stage......
shows? 62 so far

Why thanks! I shall share, and with a better photo! And EVEN a close up of the compass. Perhaps a Ken Burns effect on the compass.

Say... *tests waters*... Polar shift...happening...

Magnetic north... Migrating...again...

Anyone? Anyone?

Also, triceratops didn't exist.

Venomous, that's awesome! Thanks for sharing! Curious to know (once you're done) how long it took in total... And, yes, tattooing over the spine (and for me, shoulder blades) was excruciating.
Brevity is not my forte.

I shall keep you posted! It's likely I won't go back in until after October 15th. It's crazy though, it's technically not even a neck tattoo, as it is really the last possible stretch of the neck, and I guess a few people saw it at the bar and asked me what it was and what it said. This is the first one I've had that is more visible, so it caught me off-guard, but it was so interesting how people reacted. "Some people have one (that they proceeded to tell me about), some have one that they're ashamed of (they also told me about theirs haha), most people think that we're fools ("what's that going to look like when you're older"), some people don't get it and some people don't care (not very many of the last), and some of us we have tattoos"

Marowak, thanks for the link! Tuning in :)

If you're bored, play "find the typo on VB's back" :/ thank goodness it's an easy fix! 'twas not in initial file.
Oh well! Could be worse :)

#31 on the list of tats on the first page. What's the story behind that one? A dare? A fan? Feel the need for speed?
