    GT, I lucked out, my gf totally digs my ink. She loves the juxtaposition of my outer conservative look and my ink and piercings underneath it. I have been giving more serious thought to my next (third). It will be another pin-up girl, probably another Elvgren.

    Here are the two I already have. Both were done by Tina Bafaro (http://www.bafaro.com) in Seattle.

    Left leg; something I doodled alot in class when I was a student. Not the best pic, but you are only missing her legs (no feet on her).

    [​IMG]

    Right leg; adapted from Gil Elvgren's One for the Road. Again not a great pic and she has a line across her face because of my sock. What can you do.

    Thanks GT, I appreciate it. Here are a couple I'm thinking of for my next one (left fore-arm): http://www.thepinupfiles.com/images/elvgren6.jpg http://www.thepinupfiles.com/images/photographer.jpg http://www.thepinupfiles.com/images/...ren-002-LG.jpg http://www.thepinupfiles.com/images/elv00099.jpg http://www.thepinupfiles.com/images/degree.jpg Each would need its own altering to make it more to my taste (dark hair, etc.) and I'm particularly fond of the last one because (to be) Mrs. 808 is a librarian. Oh and there's another that I always imagined as altering to have her in black with a whip (and no dog): http://nylon.net/nec/elvgren/pix/elvgren$mans-best-friend-111.jpg Here is the original of One for the Money (I got the name wrong above) http://www.thepinupfiles.com/images/elv00388.jpg bob

    I don't currently have anything, but if the circumstances were aligned I'd get something along the lines of this one. It's from Domino; I don't know if Mickey Rourke actually has it or if it's makeup.

    that's cool - I think that having a nice piece of art like that has the potential of making the whole thing very interesting - on the one hand, it's a tatoo, on the other, it is a nice peice of art, it says soemthing about your taste, and it looks nice.

    From the picture name, I take it that it's a frog in a tuxedo?

    Yep, I think so [​IMG] I don't remember them, but I was going through an album and it made me laugh, so I had to use my new scanner.

    You guys look like the cover of a Ben Silver catalouge. Not that there's anything wrong with that, of course. [​IMG]

    Thought I'd post this again since my previous 900+ posts got lost in the Crash of '06.
