[OOC] News and tattoos

Kids! Bringing about Armageddon can be dangerous. Do not attempt it in your home.

There will be light

Good news on the graphics card front, a friend from Arsclan, Krissea, has been kind enough to ship me a spare card for the cost of shipping, so hopefully I'll be back up and running around the 22nd of this month. I'll remove the dead 8800 GTX and plug in the 9800 GTX as soon as it arrives :)

Under my skin

As some have requested shots of my tattoos I dug through my images to find what I could. Picture quality isn't amazing as most were taken with a camera phone the day they were completed and it's awful difficult trying to get shots of your arms by yourself. I cannot for the life of me get a good shot of the sun dragon on my right shoulder blade. I can also not get a good shot of the text that is on the inside of my left upper arm as it wraps around too far (My artist has a collage of three shots that shows it of well but he doesn't have them online)

My arms are a work in progress and will eventually be full sleeves as time and inspiration allow. Each bit of ink has specific meaning to me and I have never felt the need to justify them to anyone, least of all my family.

Work on my right outer forearm and right wrist commences on the 6th of April, I can barely wait.

Awesome tatts! Thanks for sharing the pictures. That left arm has come a long way since the last time you shared a pic of it (the progress one).

Nice work! Of course, having a fancy for minimalist design, I really like the 'Chaos' one.

Flashfresh said...

Excellent work there mate. They look excellent.
