Wow. That's a lotta ink. I actually like these. Wouldn't get one, but they're the nicest tattoos I've ever seen!

Yep these ones stood out to me when i saw them, which is why i posted them itt. there's a Serbo/Croatian (Catholic) tradition of getting small crosses tattooed on the hands, especially the women, which i've always thought was really cool especially given the hostilities towards Catholics in some of those reigons.

Here's mine.



There you have it.  The chair is empty.  Nothing more to be said.

I love that Blessed Mother tat.  Some people are so talented.  If there were someone who could do portrait that well around here, I'd certainly get one.  Haven't found anyone that good yet.  Saw an angel tat on a guy at the swimming pool that was incredible.  Asked him where he got it and he said it was just a friend of his.  It took 15 hours.  I can't imagine sitting that long.

Yikes! I thought those huge tattoos were done in stages?

They are. My longest session ever was about 8 hours, if I recall correctly. It was fairly rough going by the end.
