The Beginning of my Sleeve
Growing up I was always fascinated by those who had tattoo’s. Not sure why but it just seemed to be a cool thing to do and have. When I got old enough I started to get my own. I wasn’t some Jail bound criminal. No, I had a job and managed my own affairs quite well. I got a few then stopped for a while then I began again about 3 years ago. I did several on my own and they look like someone who without proper training did them on their own. Now the professional ones I’ve been getting here as of late are a thing of beauty. I have decided that I want to do a Pink Floyd tribute and do a half sleeve for now in nothing but Pink Floyd Images. Yesterday started that journey and I got Part 1 done by Brian Chun. The tattoo is of the cow from the album Atom Heart Mother. This is one of my favorite Floyd pieces and a great way to start my sleeve.
He has done such a great job with this that I am so looking forward to the next piece. I’m not sure what he is going to do next as I am giving him free range of choosing from the images that I gave him. He chose the cow first. This was the first cow he has ever done and we both must say it’s awesome. My Wife whom is going to be having surgery next week has to wait on getting her tattoo done(non Pink Floyd) but even she likes the cow. The Images Collected range from a number of years of the band’s history. I’m just not big enough to do all of their history but wanted to grab those defining moments that made them one of Musics Premier Bands.
My goal is to have this finished by the end of the year. However money will dictate how close I reach that goal. As I write this my truck has a major issue and will cost me six hundred dollars to repair or fifteen hundred to replace. I’ve decided to replace it as it has over 300 thousand miles on it. So over the next six weeks I’ll have to pay for this New to me truck. So Brian will have some time to draw out the next piece. I do thank him for his incredible work. I look forward to posting the next picture of this hopefully within about 2 to 3 months.
If you are ever in StMarys Georiga and want some fresh ink I suggest you go to Ken Knights Tattoo Shop and tell those guys that I sent ya cause they are the Best. Well until the next time this is the frog signing out.
