Hello from the Seattle area


Recommended Posts

I debated getting a tattoo for quite a while, finally took the plunge a couple years

back with a pun on a kanji character. I remember thinking half way through it

that I didn't think I'd get more. But by the time I was driving home, I was feeling like

I'd earned something and that I had to do it again.

I've got tattoos now:


- that first one (the "way" character from kendo, crossed out)

- the laughing wolf in my avatar (designed by my daughter)

- the word "timshel" from East of Eden

A little larger:

- Triumph Speed Triple motorcycle

- a Canadian maple leaf with a buffalo in it (since I grew up on the border in Buffalo, have lots

of family on both sides of the border and my favorite thing is riding my motorcycle up into

BC & sometimes Alberta.

Now talking to my favorite artist about a larger Firefly sci-fi tattoo. Planning to get some

while travelling, e.g., joining the Bristol Tattoo Club in England.

Looking forward to talking with you all!

I'm liking that laughing wolf, what's the meaning behind it?

Thanks! I've always thought wolves are awesome, strong predators but social, pack animals.

And canines have a sense of humor....was going for something that's a bit of a predator

but not taking itself too seriously.

Also, representing family. So, my daughter is a budding artist and I asked her to come up with

the logo and she completely designed it. She knew it was for a tattoo but when I actually came

home with it inked it kind of wigged her out a bit. But she's getting used to it and talks about

possibly designing tattoos or even getting one herself. She rocks.

What's the ink in your avi?
