New tattoo (details)

I've decided I won't post my tattoo on this blog. Well, certainly not yet, and maybe not ever. The final image that we came up with is a one-off, and unfortunately people are prone to taking images from websites and copying them.

Most tattooed people, of course, borrow and adapt other images (including tattoos), and once something is on the Web, it is incredibly difficult to prevent said borrowing -- or, worse, theft.

It's perhaps hypocritical of me to say this, given how many images I take from websites for use on this blog: politicians, musicians, actors, etc. But I know I'm a hypocrite and make no bones about it!

So, I'm really happy with the way it has come out so far. There's a long road ahead of me, and many womanhours for the wife of soaping me up and rinsing me down, before she pats me dry with paper towels. Some gals get all the luck, right?

Anyways, here are a couple of details of the backpiece. Those of you who have expressed an interest will receive an unsolicited mail from me with a small image file of the whole thing attached (provided I can find your e-mail address). If you don't get a mail and would like to see the pic, feel free to leave me a comment or drop me a line and I'll mail it to you.

Are you yada-yadaing the bit about me slapping nappy rash cream on you and wrapping you in clingfilm? You yada-yada'd the best part!

Your Tat is amazing. But the teeth remind me of the strongbad video: I said consummate v's!

Wow, it is looking intricate...pretty fascinating what you've shown us here. I completely understand not posting pics online for tats and art work. I avoid a lot of topics that are important o me because they are in progress...art film plans drawings. Not that anyone is banging on my door for art ha ha...but ya need to protect some ideas.

Cheers thanks for the glimpses!

Thanks for the comments, guys.

_z.: Yep, it'll be coloured. This is by a tattooist called Xam. I've had previous work by him, and he designed it according to my idea.
