    So ive pretty well decided what I want to do with my back. I want Alex Grey's Wonder http://www.alexgrey.com/cards/w.html . But i was also thinking it would be damn cool to get the line work done with UV ink so it shows up in the dark. I just think that would work so well with the concept of the piece.

    So im going to start talking to some artist this weekend hopefully and get the ball rolling. Ill keep you posted :)

    That looks sick. I hope it does the original art justice.

    Nice choice, I've always had my eye on that one if I were ever to do a tattoo based on Grey's work. Reminds me of my past LSD trips under the stars and black sky. Post pic's if you end up finding a good artist.

    Yea i hope the artist can put in on paper/skin as well as i picture it in my head. I guess ill find out soon.

    Also is UV something that many places are going to have? or will that be harder to find? Ill know as soon as i venture out to denver but just curious.

    to get this done right will require a lot of time, money, and a very good artist. good luck.
