    Update pics on page 4.

    Had it done at Big Bear Tattoo by Edwin Shaffer. Did it in one session, took about 3.5 hours. The lyrics were already there, and i wasn't totally happy with them, so i asked him if he could work them into my idea to have calvin and hobbes sitting under a tree. I love it. :wiggle:

    Here's the reference pic.

    :werd: Collected every book growing up and gave the entire set to my little brother when he got old enough to appreciate them.

    I want to get that really nice leather bound collection they offer now.

    Thanks for all the positive responses, guys! I can't stop staring at it and neither can Deelz (wife). Ed did absolutely stellar work and Big Bear Tattoo is a truly kick ass shop that i'd recommend to anyone.

    I plan on going back to ed for the rest of the sleeve i have planned and any other pieces i decide on adding. :wiggle:

    Thanks! :wavey:

    Deelz foot is looking good, but walking around is a pain in the ass since she can't wear shoes and standing too long makes it sore. We'll get some better pics of it in a couple days when the colors have settled.

    We're definitely down to kick it when you come out here, just let us know.

    Oh, that white is actually just my skin color. The black lines/stripes and the solid orange make it look lighter, i think.
