    I just got this tattooed at the Montreal convention by Mike Rubendall.
    We did 4.5 hours last night, and then finished it in an hour this morning.
    I'm so pleased with it.

    i always saw ganesh pictures, and never really understood more than that they looked cool. well back in december my father took me to china town in las vegas and i saw this little ganesh statue. i bought it because it looked cool and on my way home i googled what it meant. I loved the whole lord of wisdom, remover of obstacles, god of prosperity and remover of ego and vanity angle to him. I became fascinated with the whole of hinduism. and even though I liked shiva and rama way more than ganesh, as far as a personal connection was felt, I still loved the symbolism and imagery of ganesh, and i knew that unlike a tattoo of shiva or rama that it would be easier to make look good.
    but i wasnt sure what i really wanted. i had wanted a tattoo since I was in middle school, like most of the kids i had gone to school with. i had done tons of research into tattoos in general and was thinking of all the stuff I wanted but i was afraid to get a fucked up version of anything. My friend showed me her tattoos done at a local shop so I sent the guy this picture:

    and asked him to copy it exactly. he said yeah sure come in next week.
    I go in and he shows me a new drawing, saying he preferred to do something better and asked me my opinion. I loved it from the moment I saw it

    it was 20x better than what I had planned. Sorry for double posting the same tattoo in two threads though.
    he did the outline and then asked me, "well, i hate the new school idea of putting pinks and shit into something like this, let me show you a color that would go well with this" and he pulled out the most god awful shade of orange-gold-brown. he said it would look better on my skin that pink and told me to trust him. I told him to go ahead then since it was his job to make those kind of calls. which is how my elephant god went from pink to the beautiful golden color it is. He wanted to do some background in purple but as he reached for the blue ink to make purple ink I told him that the shade of blue he had in his hand was my favorite color. That sealed the deal.
    Now that I look at my tattoo however, I feel like the flower should be a different color. Idk though if I am going to change it yet. I still really love the whole thing but I think the flower could use a new color

    Got more work done on the Sleeve of Science.
    Last week was adding the Abacus, and lots of background elements (blood lines for more smoke, some galaxies, line work for planets, etc). Abacus from elbow ditch to just below armpit was not the most fun.
    This week was the entire chest panel:

    (large version in the album, or you can click on the one above).
    This was done yesterday, so, obviously, imagine all the blues to be properly muted when it is healed (some of the same blues used in the wolf coverup on the other chest panel).
    Good news: As long as this heals properly, I never "have" to get tattooed on my chest ever again!

    Hunter Morrow reacted to Dan S in Rascist tattoo redo   
    I hesitate to do all this politlcal shit on what is a forum for and about tattooing.
    That said, there seems to be no one more intolerant than one who espouses tolerance.
    If you don't want to tattoo something, that's fine, totally your business. But don't call the "racist" bullshit if you're willing to do the portraits of Che, the clenched fist, the Hammer and Sickle, all those other symbols that are, ultimately, racist.
    The swastika is derived from the Sunwheel, which was/is a symbol used by the ancestory of ALL White people for thousands of years before a group of fanatical SOCIALISTS cloaked themselves in Nationalism and used it as a symbol of their regime. Many people still use the sunwheel, or various iterations of the swastika, as a sign of their beliefs.
    MAny people today still have swastikas tattooed on them that have no political meaning whatsoever. I know it's hard for someone that is, say, in their twenties or early thirties to imagine an era before political correctness, but int he sixties and seventies, the swastika was extensively used, especially by "bikers", as an emblem to shock, or to express their alienation from society.
    This does not make them racist.
    If such a person were to get that tattoo retouched, it could well be nothing more than refreshing their memories of that time. If a person got such a tattoo in prison, it's quite possible that they have an attachment to it that transcends politics or race. A mark of survival, if you will.
    I've posted before that I've done too many "bad" things to judge ANYONE for anything. I guess I've lost touch with that essence of absolute innocence and conviction that allows one to condemn sommeone they know nothing of because of a symbol they have tattooed on them.
    And just to prove what a racist I am, my oldest son's Godfather is Puerto Rican, my Granddaughter is a quarter "Native-American", and my best friend and main partner is half-Riquenoo tambien.
    To be truly tolerant of others means to be able to be tolerant of them even when you don't agree with them.
