He will be back in May. I don't know for how long.

when he came back for the toys for tats thing a few weeks ago i saw him on the plane, so we drove him from the airport, funny coincidence... and he was saying hed be back permanently within a couple years.

I'm flattered! I'll also jump on the bandwagon and go with my tigers. All credit goes to Mr. Lehi. I just had to lie there and take it, and he was kind enough to complete the whole affair in 7.5 hours. And no, I did not get them in one sitting. He actually broke it up over 4, so it wasn't that bad.

Who am I kidding? It was the worst, but at least he's fast.

Really, though, there are so many jawdroppingly good tattoos that I see almost daily--often from our very own @Valerie Vargas and @Stewart Robson, but also from local shops like Blackheart and Spider Murphy's--that I can't pick a favorite on someone else. There's just too much good stuff out there.

All of my favorite works are all copyrighted and rightfully so, but luckily one of my favorite day of the dead girls is not and it was done I think this year by Liz Cook. I really love her work also I do not own this image and this is not my tattoo.

There is a really wonderful tattoo by Valerie that isn't up anymore, so instead I will go for second place, which is a tattoo from back in March by Thomas Hooper.

It's probably not objectively his best tattoo of the year, but I really love the choice of subject for this chest piece. It is a far less obviously aggressive animal choice than you tend to get on chest pieces, which is great because swans are as hard as fucking nails. I like the wing positions and it's webbed feet.

Those sharks are great, but I probably would have liked them even better if they didn't have bellyplates. I'm sure many will disagree with me on that though.

A sharks thread'd be cool....

This is only a small one, from Chad Koeplinger, but it's one of my favourite animal head tattoos ever. If I were going to tattoo my hands .... (As it is I'd love something in this vein for my feet next year)

There's a lot of larger scale work I've seen that is amazing in a probably more obvious way, but this is the one that popped into my head when I read this thread.
