Ringing in 2013 with Fresh Ink!

Well, I've been wanting some new ink for a while, and I have this really cool wife who wanted to do something special for me to kick off the new year.  My dear friend Tony Davis has been telling me about all the cool stuff happening at Queen Anne's Revenge Tattoos in Collinsville, so I decided to check them out.  I wound up taking advantage of their ridiculous 6 hours for $200 deal, which they only do on Tuesdays, and Rooster did a fantastic job on me.  I had a blast and I think the work looks great.

I got some serious black art and a touch-up on my dragon on my left arm, and I got a new dragon on my chest.  I've already booked another appointment, so there's another dragon coming to the chest area (I have this thing about balance) and some other stuff that I'll be sharing with you shortly, but here's a look at the pieces Rooster did today:

She had to touch this dragon up.  Once upon a time a dude who called himself Frog tried to bore a hole through my arm in several places after doing some great work on some of my mates, but things are looking up for yours truly in 2013.  Rooster did a great job of fitting the new black art with the dragon.  I've always said I wanted kind of a gauntlet on this arm and not a sleeve, and that's pretty much what we did today.

Now, we roll the arm over a bit to show you more of the tat.  It's actually a take on the initials "RW", but I told Rooster I was more concerned about the artwork and less concerned about how much it looked like the initials I asked for.  She nailed it, but it's upside-down and I couldn't really fit it into a single picture, so you may not be able to tell.  Trust me, Rooster did a great job with the presentation and the "RW" is definitely there.

This is what the rest of it looks like, and you can also get a peek at the new dragon chilling on my chest.

Here's a better look at the new dragon. 

Anyway, it was good to see Tony again, Queen Anne's Revenge Tattoos is a cool shop with some great deals to offer, and I'm thrilled with my new ink.  Thanks again, Rooster.  

I'll be adding more in 2 weeks, so stay tuned, and if you're feeling bored, read my book.  2013 is ours.
