Thanks, guys.

CultExciter, that was one of the reasons that took me so long to get a tattoo. I always wanted this image but knew it wasn't "unique". Oh, well. I like it. :)

Did your friend change the design at all? I considered that too, but liked the simplicity and the message of the original so left it intact.

I'll choose a classic image over a convoluted amalgam of exceedingly sentimental ideas any day.

He kept the design pretty much the same with a few stylized differences. If it ain't broke...

I'd think I'd have to agree.

Shaun Bushnell @ Blue Flame in Raleigh where I go posted this on IG not too long ago, looks like he cleaned up the original design a little.
