"My chest rosettes are my favorites. They were done while visiting Malaysia. They symbolized a travel adventure and were originally hand done upriver in the jungles of Borneo, and then finished by machine in the modern city of Kuala Lampur. And someone once asked me how did I expect to ever find a job with those things in my ears and tattoos all over ... well, I am the CEO of a tattoo and piercing company, which employs a staff of 75-plus."

Aww this is great. I'm not a huge tattoo person myself, but I love a guy with tattoos. That is, as long as they have meaning. I don't understand why people get random tattoos all the time, but if it's a memory or holds a special place in your heart than why not.

I took my son to get his first tattoo when he was two months away from turning 18. I knew he was going to get anyway in a couple of months and I didn't want it to be something he did rebelliously. It was a pretty good day as I remember. At that age there isn't a lot of quality time with mom. I wound up wanting one myself. Although it was a couple of years before I got the nerve. By then he had two. His girlfriend had been bitten by the bug and had one as well. Now I have three...and so does he. Lol...it is definitely addictive. But along with the story, there is something very sweet about a man with a tattoo(s) taking care of his baby. It's kind of like the lion and the lamb...or that's the best analogy I could think of. Enjoyed these pics.

this is really a touching story. i'm not a tatoo guy but this makes me potentially rethink a tatoo as a visual aid to spark thoughts of loved ones who have passed. very cool!
