Arm and chest tattoo - Tattoowise
I know that some people think that the "see-thru" tattoo design is played out, but I have a legitimate reason for choosing this design idea and location. :-)
Several years ago I had a work injury which eventually required surgery. Fusing two of my vertebrae together, removing a couple discs, adding cadaver bone, etc. Despite the surgery being a success, I still experienced nerve damage which has left that shoulder essentially useless and always in pain.
Unfortunately internal injuries like that are a blessing and a curse. The "curse" part is because nobody knows how broken I really am in that area, so everyone thinks that I'm fine. This disability has affected my life in more ways than you can imagine, so I guess I just wanted something on the outside that shows how I feel on the inside.
So I opted for the see-thru design with torn / stressed muscles and a cracked collar bone underneath.
Thanks for reading. ;-)

Day 33 - Well What can I say. What would our lives be without love? I can only Imagine one word. Unbearable! If I were to live for a thousand years I would still not give up the desire to love. Heartbreak. Would you give up the ability to love and be loved to not suffer heartbreak. I can not imagine anyone could say yes.

I cherish the day when I again wear that warm wonderful coat of LOVE. “Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only ligh
This is take a day after my first session on my full-sleeve japanese koi tattoo. Design and tattoo by Megu, Innervision Sydney. Sorry for the bad quality, Will add better pictures once the tattoo is done and healed.
Day 38 of 365 days . I had been wanting to take a shot featuring all of my tattoos at some point and when Pi c's suggested a birthmark challenge it seemed like as good a time as any. These are the various symbols that adorn my body, the dates I got them, and what they symbolize. 8-1-74 - Bunny Rabbit Birthmark Right pectoral. Symbolizing. I dunno, I didn't put it there. Maybe that I'm cute and fast. 3-23-02 - Heaven Sigil Right Shoulder Blade. The mark of the angels that occur in Elseworld, a mystical land of angels and demons in several of my short stories. I'm trying to be one of the angels. 9-3-03 - ShadoWolf Sigil aka, the Maverick symbol. Left Shoulder. Several stories I write have me in them in some respect or another. This represents kind of the merger of all aspects of me. 2-25-06 - Wolf Totem Right Shoulder. A slightly less stylized tribal tattoo, expanding upon the design of

a work in progress. there's another woman vampire (vampiress?) on his back shoulder blade and a gothic gate on the other side of his forearm. some of the new is to cover up the old that he doesn't like anymore.
