Nice. I was thinking shoulder too. I do know my share about saints having been raised as a Catholic too. I've been thinking about having my coat of arms done. However, when I investigated, there are more than a hundred different coats corresponding to my last name. I'd have to dig very deep in my pedigree to see if I can determine the exact one, something I think will almost be impossible. Nonetheless, there is one which has the exact colors as the coat of the city I was born, so I'm inclined to have that one done or make a hybrid of both coats which would probably be a lot cooler.

My grandfather's borther was in Italy after WW2 and tooka pic of our family's CoA, so thats on my to do list. The name I want done most though (my grandmothers) is DonDiego and is most likely of Castilian origin. They came over to Italy during Bourbon rule, and settled in the moutain village from where my great grandfather immigrated...I love that shit.

Well, you're on the right track with doing more research as to which arms you are actually descended from, as that is the sole determinant if you are an armiger. I was thinking that US law/custom might be non-patrilineal (ie: if you had a closer armigerous relative who was related through a woman, that would be your rightful arms if none of your patrilineal ancestors bore arms), whereas Commonweath laws are.

Turns out that the USA does not regulate this so I'm incorrect.

NYR, this looks and sounds great. Wonderful way to bring in your heritage.

Here's my newest, completed just a month back. In memory of my father who spent a couple formative years in Hawaii in the late 1940s. A short time; but when I think of Hawaii I think of him and when I think of him I think of Hawaii.

Just got this a few days ago. I have yet to regret a tattoo. If it looks bad when i'm 60, I probably will in general.

Mithras in a tauroctony scene, chest piece. Right arm, loosely based on the book Quo Vadis by Henryk Sienkiewicz as a tribute:
Overall view. Detail photos below.
Nero plays the lyre singing of the fall of Troy as Rome burns. Baphomet and beast drawn abstractly to identify Nero as the beast in the Apocalypse of St. John.
Ligia. Incomplete.
Christians thrown to the lions. Incomplete. Let's see some more tattoos!

I love these! I've always been partial to Mithraic imagery, and Baphomet just speaks to the metal in all of us. How old is the back piece? It looks like it has held up well.

These are really well done. Who is the artist?

My antique theater mask:





And my new luchador (inner bicep):




I love the luchador. Vivid!

Haters gonna hate.

That took about three hours, and the center piece and last hour was probably one of the more painful experiences of my life. And thats coming from someone who's suffered a few compound fractures.
