My baby cousin and my Uncle...and my mom.
This is my 3rd tattoo that I got shortly after my father committed suicide. He loved to gamble, hence the goodluck charms, and his initials.
Him and Steve are brothers.
I've decided to get my first tattoo, and since I'm going for it, I'm going all-out (to me, at least). This is my first rough design, and it's based aroud our Family Crest, with the critical inclusions being the red lion, the boar's head, the fleurs-de-lis, the 3 green, five-leafed Potentilla rose plants, the iris, and the motto "Juncta arma decori," which means "arms united to glory." The numbers at the top are the birth years of my Dad, Mom, Brother, Sister, me, and then my wife. I'll be making an appoinmet with one of the artists at High Voltage Tattoo in Hollywood, CA -- but I haven't decided which one yet. I'm also deciding where, exactly, I'll get it -- but I'm leaning toward all around my right shoulder or right, upper shoulder/back area. We'll see...
my dad's signature on my right foot. =] i love it.
