We Salute You

One of the funny things about having lots of visible tattoos, is that suddenly, you are the sounding board for tattoo ideas. Strangers constantly tell me about tattoos they want to get... or thought about once... or they know a guy who has something cool tattooed...

Another funny thing, is that lots of these people, are the super-established square dude type. The former 'straight A' students LOVE to reminisce about that time in college when they smoked a bong before class, or that month that they didn't shave, or the copious amounts of beer they consumed in their "wild" days. It is like they want you to know that they have a little renegade in them.

Phil is my dentist. His tattoo is amazing. Really solid design, and the linework is very well done.
This is one of the best tattoos I have ever seen.

Extra deduction for perfection...if that is possible.

What this tattoo says about the wearer:

Nothing bad at all.

Don't forget to floss


  1. whew, i love your blog but was frightened that you might say bad things about this tattoo which, as you have pointed out, is perfect.

    what a relief.

  2. Lol.

    Ac/Dc is kick ass. YOu couldnt have picked this tat at a better time. Considering, the release of their new album and all on 10/20.

  3. Sarah: Hey, you are right. I saw the ad, but have very poor short term mem...what were we just talking about?

    Merkley???: Thank you, Sir.

  4. I don't want to be an alarmist, but I think your dentist should have a couple of those moles checked out by a qualified dermatologist - preferable one who knows who Angus Young is.

  5. Wow...that's quite the intricate tattoo. I can tell he really went all out on his tribute to AC/DC. Damn, if that's all it takes for perfection -- I'm going into a new line of work. :D

  6. I love it! I'm going to have to add you to my blog roll. Watch out for the influx of reader.

  7. That is one excellent rendition of a tattoo. 20$ says this was produced by:
    3 cups tequila
    1 mechanical pencil
    2 ounces of black "india ink"
    2 "steril" sewing needles
    4 AA batteries
    2 teaspoons Jack Daniels
    and last but not least...
    1 very, very dumb idea.
