New Tattoo! Show yours too!

Dear Jemsite Shredders and Ink affecionados alike,

I was asking for a picture of this earlier two weeks ago, and i figured it might appropriate to show you all where in went into. Thanks again for the guys who helped me find it.

It's basically the "Light without heat" pyramid. I wanted a pyramid with an all seeing eye for the longest time, and i fell upon this one in the Vai forums, and i thought to myself that it could make for an interesting piece of art. I sat down with an artist, and we skewed the concept a bit, i wanted to add some design to it so that it could reach my shoulders, but still give the middle piece a lot of impact. The shading itself took a good 40 minutes as i wanted it to really attract the attention. Keep in mind that this is not completed. I have yet another 3 or 4 hours to add some shading into the outer tribal like design, and i talked about putting a slight amount of color for impact, but we haven't gone into the details. I will update if people want to see the rest in 3 weeks. For now, i have to heal and lotion this bastard. I never knew i was so flexible.
I don't have anyone to apply it for me all day long :P

This is my 4th tattoo. If you have a tattoo, please share it with us!

Here it is!

Thanks again to Elcid and the others, without you guys this would've dragged on another week!

Re: New Tattoo! Show yours too!

Nice, you should get some pictures up. the Les Paul headstock must be great. What are you thinking for number three ?

I also have contrasting symbols on my wrists. And a Tribal Dragon on my chest. It's not completed i need to add a back ground to it, but i am taking my time to figure it out

Re: New Tattoo! Show yours too!

Nice Tattoo that dude, it looks great. I haven't got any myself but I'm thinking of one on my right bicep soon. I was thinking of getting this Vai logo but I fear I may regret it in future years. :



Is that a vivarium I spot on the left there? I love Snakes

At least that's a cool tattoo. Don't worry about, i think it's cool thing to get. And although you might think it's a popular idea cause you're on a vai associated page, i wouldn't worry about crossing many people with the same Tattoo. It's not like you had Steve's face tattooed on you. Take your time if you want, but i think it's a good looking tat

Yes that is a Vivarium. Inside, settled in his warm cave is my Snake. He's a beautiful soon to be 2 years old Corn Snake.

Re: New Tattoo! Show yours too!

Here are mine, the dragon was done in Fall of 2001 and the sun was done in August of 2005~



I had the dragon redone last summer with newer, brighter colors, the artist that did my sun decided to redo the dragon (done by a inexperienced artist), it looks 100% better~

Great looking tattoo's man. And don't worry about the beer belly. Think of it as a different abdomen form. Instead of a six-pack, you kick more ass so you get a Keg. Awesome ink, love the style. You remind me of Kerry a lot. You ,sir, Kick ass. Keep the beer pong going, it's good


As for the pictures of my ex, i would have to respect the rules so would you. She is jailbait to you older gentlemen . Watch out :P

Re: New Tattoo! Show yours too!

Yeah one of my exes had a bunch of tattoos. She got a pretty big one after I broke up with her . . .

I've got none myself, but my bro just got one last year.
