New Tattoo! - Tribal Elk
« on: August 14, 2013, 07:27:17 PM »
This is my first tat. I waited 31 years to get it. It is sort of a tribute to my dad who passed away a couple weeks ago, since he introduced me to my biggest passions besides my family - elk hunting and the outdoors. I think it turned out pretty darn good!

It's a very unique, awesome tat. Cool!

It wasnt incredibly comfortable, especially in the back. I don't understand those people who say it is fun to get a tattoo. Feels like getting snapped with a rubber band 500 times to me.

I like it. Simple and clean. Good lines. It should look good for many years.

I like it and your motivation for getting it.
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

Now why did you have to go and do that to yourself, you just ruined your chances of making a decent living and are only thinking of the now and not the future..better apply for your EBT card today... :chuckle:

Seriously, nice tat..
To hunt and butcher an animal is to recognize that meat is not some abstract form of protein that springs into existence tightly wrapped in cellophane and styrofoam.

I don't know who drew it. I found it on line as a drawing and spent about a year thinking about it and trying to find someone who had already done it as a tattoo. I never did find anyone else with anything like it so it passed the unique test. Sean at Phantom tattoo in Centralia did the work.
