I'm going to the tattoo shop thursday to talk to the artist and show him what I want and talk about size and price. If everything goes well I'll be getting my ink on saturday.
Edit: the tattoo is going to be a memorial tattoo for my grandparents
I'm gonna get a dragon that extends from my left bicep and wraps around my tricep, chest and shoulder, then runs down most of the left side and bottom of my back. Tattoist friends for the win. Just paying for the ink.
While I personally would never get a Mario tattoo, that one actually looks fairly well done. I mean, it looks like the artwork and the color is nice. It's still a Mario tattoo... but if that's what you want, good on ya!
Ha ha, yeah, it was from 2 hours after I got it and had just taken the bandage off, so it was all covered in gore. I took a picture of it pre-cleaning and it ended up being the one I showed all my friends because it's so gross looking and funny.
