  1. Going to finally get a tattoo at Aloha Monkey next week. A bunch of guest artists are coming in for there 20 year anniversary weekend party and I'm booked with Doug Hardy. It's going to be a good time and hopefully it doesn't hurt at all.
  2. Seems like it would work fine. Maybe share your concerns with your artist and see if they have thoughts on how to tie it all together.
  3. I have a similar gap on my knee and I'm thinking some kind of lizard because they have four limbs, a head, and a tail that can all be twisted into whatever angle the space requires. Good luck!

    None of my business but I agree with SStu. As it stands it's a nice tribute to the girls and their unchanging birth year. Let them color it in and it will likely become a less good tribute to one moment of their lives- when they are young. If your goal is to add color and also have your daughter's participate maybe have them choose the colors but then let a professional artist decide how to apply them? Again- do what you want- it's your family and your arm- but as long as you asked for advice from internet strangers my advice is to come up with different plan. For what it's worth I like the tattoo as it is currently.
  6. 2018 started out with a Sailor Jerry ship at Leviticus Tattoo's annual Sailor Jerry Birthday bash and then a very small filler sparrow at the Minneapolis tattoo convention- both in January. May brought me a nice fish at Smith Street and the tattoo year finished up with a rocket ship back at Leviticus. 2019 will bring another one from he Sailor Jerry Birthday party and then who knows what? Most of the tattoo budget will go to support my wife in getting a sleeve on her blank arm for her 40th year.
  7. Are we still tracking lower leg progress becuase definitely making progress...
  8. This is more or less exactly what I was going to say.
  9. Yep, Minnesota. My wife wanted this from facing crawfish/crayfish based on a photo she took in Lake Mille Lacs which is a large lake smack dab in the middle of the state.
  10. Thanks! We are pretty happy with how they turned out.
  11. Another fun family day at Leviticus Tattoo in Minneapolis. A crayfish for my wife and a rocket ship for me. Both by Kyle Malone.
  12. I don't have my knees covered but my wife does (one of them anyway) and I will never forget the day. We went to Great Lakes in Chicago and she got a sweet squid on her knee by Nick Colella. Afterwards we celebrated buy walking around eating and drinking - as is our custom. At the end of the night we caught a bus to our hotel and as she stepped off the bus her freshly tattooed knee that had been walking around for hours just waved the white flag and gave up and wife spilled out onto the sidewalk like a sack of potatoes. I guess what I'm trying to say here is have fun but be careful getting off the bus.
  13. This is true of me but only because it usually takes me like an hour to find clean socks that match.
