This is a portrait of my late mother when she was in her senior year of high school. I had it done locally in the San Jose area. Left arm, single needle, two sessions, and 6.5-7 hours total. This was my first tattoo.


My right arm has a reservation for my daughter's senior portrait.

the one on the right in the picture is based off a random heart i came up with when i was doodling in school.....and the other one is another one that i sketched out randomly one time.....i didn't get to scan the sketch before i took it to the tattoo guy and i never got it back

is that the sinclair gas station dinosaur?


Sinclair oil company yes :) it has ties to a lot of family roadtrip memories from my childhood. Reminds me of my dad, I have 4 brothers and sisters, and the likelihood of us all going on a roadtrip again is... 0%


and I like how its also a symbol for my car hobby, and only some people know what it is. I'm amazed at how many people in the car scene don't recognize it, but then again its more of a east coast/midwest kinda thing. A good majority of their stations are on old historic routes now.
