thanks!! I'm really happy with it. It's healing up nicely already!

I'll catch myself in the the mirror and be caught off guard. "What the FUCK is THAT?!!!" and then I'll remember :banana: :banana: :banana: :banana: :P :P

It looks cool!

(Hahaha, though! It looks like you have a rat tail because of that branch behind your head. :P)

Oh, wait, unless you do have a rat tail, in which case I should say that I like them. :whistle:

(Really, I do. I used to have one--a braided one--and I'd have it back now if I weren't too old for one and they weren't out of style.)

Are you going to walk the Camino, Jonny? Only today a friend of mine was saying how she's a) going to walk the Camino and b) had an interview to teach at a school named after St. James... Now you turn up with his symbol on your chest... I feel like Dr. Who and Bad Wold...

Crucifer, it's totally a sign - for you and me. :-) I do plan to walk it in the next few years.

Lali, LOL! Well it's not a rat tail but I'm not necessarily opposed ;-)

I'm allergic to scallops, they look like chewed up assholes. :uhoh:

Luckily their shells are beautiful, and that is a great tattoo!

I had no idea that shell shape wasn't for oysters, though. Sea creatures are so varied and plentiful, it's hard to keep track of anything besides what'll kill you or taste bad. :P

Oh, and cheers for naked b77ers, I miss these kinda things being more common.

Looks like a good relatively non-stretchy place to put a tattoo. :)

That's beautiful! I love the symbolism of the scallop shell, and I hope you do get to walk the Camino someday. :)

I have one tattoo already (a gecko on my right shoulder) and am planning to get a cherry blossom design on my outer thigh, just above the knee. Hopefully within the next couple of weeks! Tattoos are pretty addicting, I think. Once I got the first I immediately wanted another--I waited two years, though, to make sure.

That looks awesome Jonny! And might I add that you are just so damn cute :love:

Lay down
Your sweet and weary head
Night is falling
You’ve come to journey's end
Sleep now
And dream of the ones who came before
They are calling
From across the distant shore

Why do you weep?
What are these tears upon your face?
Soon you will see
All of your fears will pass away
Safe in my arms
You're only sleeping

Hey dude! I like it. Very nice with cool symbolism. Did it hurt much getting it done on the chest plate? I imagine anywhere near a bone like that would hurt quite a bit...

I have a biohazard symbol on my ankle. No deep meaning there, I'm just a big fan of zombie movies :P

I do plan on getting two more done this year. I'm designing an old style skeleton key but in the base (where you grab the key with your fingers) I'm putting a treble clef and in the second one a base clef. I want to put them on the inner part o my arms, like the tricep area. They'll be about 4 or 5 inches each.

I'm pro-me when it comes to the war on zombies, but they are my favorite movie monsters. So underrated. :pout:

Sooooooo I've got the fever again :damnfunny: I'm tryin to figure out what I want to do next. I'm thinkin about surrounding the seashell in driftwood and scrimshaw on my shoulders. Total nautical theme.

The other way I'm thinking of taking it is going with another saint symbol. The seashell is St. James so I was looking at various other neato Saintly symbols. Maybe that way when I get to the pearly gates I'll be let in!

Ask your tattooer if he can do an animated .gif, like Maria's old sig for example. Now that would be cool!
