Well...first of all I have to give props to Boondock for being a walking work of art. I feel kind of silly with my ONE tatto now, but I had to start
somewhere I guess (and as I get addicted to things easy, I think I am on a roll.....the wife isn't thrilled about it, but that's okay. She has one
and a belly-button piercing, so I think she will have to deal with my new hobby).
I am designing two tattos now whaaa. One that commemorates Steve Prefontaine/Olympics/and the Olympic slogan "Citius, Altius, Fortius" which means:
Faster, Higher, Stronger. Per Bill Bowerman, it doesn't mean faster, higher and stronger than anyone else. It just means "Faster, Higher,
Stronger." This will go on the right upper arm.
The second will be an homage to my brother and father who are both deceased and shared the same name, one a Sr. and one a Jr. I am not sure exactly
what this one is going to look like yet, but I think it will go on my left shoulder blade??
OKay peoples.....LET'S SEE MORE INK!!
Edit to add: Sorry whaaa.....I forgot about your question about the source/meaning of my new tattoo. No real meaning. I was going to go tribal, but
found everything a bit unexciting, so I designed this along with the tattoo artist to be more of a tribal/mechanical? style design. It was based on a
tribal tattoo I found online.....
It ended up being bigger than I had planned. I hadn't planned on having it on my shoulder....but I like how it came out!!
