Time Marches On – JUST NOT FAST ENOUGH!!!

Well it is shooting by really but I’m hangin’ out for the FA Cup final and at the mo it’s draggin grrrrrr.

Gotta do a coverup tattoo today so I best get started on the final design or I’ll never get it done.


Well, The Leg’s Been Started


That’s the easiest way to put it. From something that wasn’t that big on me thigh, it now starts about inch, maybe an inch n arf below me hip and goes down to about the same distance from me knee and wraps around me leg – talk about a cover up πŸ™‚ It was sposed to be a koi but coz of the large Kanji I ended up having to use the logo for Cardiff City Football Club – just took it outta the shield – ehh you’ll see it soon enuff.

Cardiff City

I ended up pikin out and not finishin it, about all I can remember from when it was bein done was “f**k me, yagaf**k, for f**k sake” I think you get the picture. Anyway, it’ll get finished at the end of next week, it’ll be healed enough by then and I’ll post the before and after shots.

While I’m waitin for that to heal, I’m gunna get the memorial tattoo for my tad-cu on my right calf tomorrow – he was in the Merchant Navy, died in 1939 so I never got to meet him. It’s a modified traditional design, the same basic design is going on my left calf as a memorial for my other tad-cu who passed away in 1952, someone else I didn’t get to meet. He was in the Pioneer Corps so the ship from the one that’s going on me right calf is being replaced with the Corps badge and the young lady has lost her naval hat in favour of a beret – oh what fun πŸ™‚

This is what they look like
Both Leg Designs


Time For More Ink

Actually a cover-up, I’ll post before and after pics tomorrow, I’m covering up the one on right right upper thigh, a japanese poem and some Kanji characters that I’ve just outgrown, plus the fact I did it meself so I was working upside down πŸ˜› over 15 years ago. They’re being covered up with a rather large koi and associated water, that should be fun NOT πŸ™‚ – at least it’s being done by another artist. . .

I just hope me back can handle layin in the one spot for ages, the bloody sciatica is playin up again. . .
