My good buddy Ben Buck was my tattoo inkster back in my sailing days. His grace and talent I’ve yet to see matched. That ability to see through an-others eyes what they wanted in a tattoo,
made for very few disgruntled clients, he was a wizard beyond compare. I miss you Old Salt, but I carry many a happy reminder of you with me to this day.

Are they permitted to wear… colors?

I have some socks that Massacre designed.

And… this clip makes me want a tattoo, a little.

In spite of a deep interest in tattoos, owning over a dozen books covering all kinds of tattoos, and having designed a few tattoos for friends and family in my life, I still don’t have a tattoo. I’m just too fickle to settle on anything that’s going to be permanently on my skin.

Same, i don’t own tattoo books but i have a few on my wishlist. I am not against getting one but nothing really calls out to me as something i just have to get inked.
