A Pirate’s Life For Me

A pirate’s life for me…
It may sound funny, but as a little kid one of the reasons I fell in love with tattoos was because I wanted to be a pirate.
Pirates had tattoos and pirates had the # 1 spot on the cool jobs chart in my brain.
I will admit that at age 5 or so I didn’t really understand what pirates really did, but it sure looked fun.
This tattoo here is just a little guy. I think it was like three or maybe four inches tall (don’t recall 100% the exact size) and was done from a client supplied bit of traditional tattoo flash.
Many tattooists don’t dig doing flash. I personally have no problem with it. What I find funny is that most who claim to not dig doing flash art have tons of it in their studios. I currently have not one single design in my place of work to choose from. I do mostly custom stuff drawn by me. I however am happy as a drunken pirate to pirate some oldschool flash art for a clients tattoo. As long as the client brings it in of course.
Pirate Head Tattoo Oldschool


Is he strong?
Listen bud,
He’s got radioactive blood.
Can he swing from a thread
Take a look overhead
Hey, there
There goes the Spiderman.

I hope that tune is stuck in your head all day now. If it is you will have a much funner day than you would have otherwise. If you don’t know the tune you probably can’t appreciate the awesomeness of this sweet Spidey rib-cage piece to the full extent.

Here is how it ends folks…

Whenever there’s a hang up
You’ll find the Spider man.
