One of the most popular requests I receive is to post pictures of our tattoos. I rarely show them, considering I don’t even wear bikinis, let alone scandalous belly shirts. However, I decided to take some pictures and show you. Just one of mine (I only have two) and several (but not all…not even close) of Bobby’s. I didn’t photograph my other tattoo because it’s a really lame one. Since Peter will surely call me out and tell you all what it says, I’ll beat him to the punch. It says “she wakes up lonely” and yes, it’s on my lower back. I know. Really, I know.
Mine. The geisha is an original piece of art, specifically intended for this tattoo, by André Greppi. The tattoo was done at Chrome Lotus in Orlando, by Brian (he’s no longer there). I don’t have a heart wrenching or deep story behind this; I just wanted to get a geisha and I knew I wanted it to be a little more modern, less traditional. I’m 1/4 Japanese…does that count? Nah, I just knew that’s what I wanted.
Bobby’s arm – clearly unfinished. He has bad luck with tattoo artists leaving him with unfinished pieces. One day, he’ll get it finished.
A horrible picture of his left forearm – a depiction of the Rosemond watercolor we have hanging in Kim’s room.
His feet (he has ribbing marks from his socks, haha).
Another unfinished piece.
O Captain, my captain. Whitman, not Every Time I Die – but I always think, “O captain, my captain, you’ve been drinking – what happened? I’ve been slurring my cadences and blacking out when I stand.”
So, now you know. Do you have any tattoos? Link me to pictures!
