    yeah it's a bit of an odd thing to get a tattoo of, do you have any particular reason?

    My recommendation is to make it a back piece and get it done in grey scale like a pencile drawing. That would look good. All of my tattoos are done like this and I love them.

    Kind of like these here. Turn them into whole scenes and use the art work as an entire back piece. That would be impressive.

    I have one.... got the name "Squirrel" tattooed on my left shoulder in 1952
    in Jax, Fla. It was a nickname as a youngster.

    Since then I've had an auto accident and they had to remove
    most of the muscle in my left shoulder. Now the tattoo looks like
    the tattoo artist hiccuped !

    Remind me to show you my birthmark (!)

    I always liked this one... and in fact met the pilot of that B-17 and got an autographed print a couple weeks ago.
