Mike's visit...

Michael came for a pre-Christmas visit today. He needed to pick up Chrissy presents for himself and my parents, as well as pick up his travel itinerary for his trip to Adelaide tomorrow, and to have lunch with us, etc...

We had a good long chat about tattoos seeing as he's now started a new career as a tattooist (has never done this before in his entire life, but is an artist, so is good with the drawing/design aspect of it all)...

He showed me his new tatts (first ever, he's never been interested in having tattoos before, but I guess you can't work in the industry and NOT actually have your own ink done, hehehe)...

Here's one his boss did for him...

Three Runic symbols which basically stand for "Genuine Creative Energy"... This is only the first part of a bigger design that will take about four sittings to complete, and then he'll have a matching one on his other arm.


And here's his first attempt of doing his own ink - it's a bit wobbly, and he said if anyone had done that bad a job on him, he'd have to deck them, but he reckons it's all cool because he can (and will) clean it all up once he's had a bit more practice. He did all that work in 2 hours and that really impressed his boss (particularly because he was doing the work on himself, upside down)...


And then he wanted me to take some pics of himself to show Dad when he visits tomorrow... So, here is his everyday face...


His, "I'm being a tool" face...


Showing Dad his family inheritance, "Look Dad, just like you!"


"Yeah, man, I'm a tough ink'd dude, now!"
