Default Tattoo

Getting my first tattoo tomorrow at the age of 44! I am getting a Walley going after a homemade jig. It is in memory of my Dad, who passed away in 1980, when I was 13. His whole life was walley fishing. He tied his own jigs, and sold them at the resort where he had his cabin. Cant wait, I have wanted a tattoo for a while, but I wanted my first one to really have a meaning, and I finally found it.

Thanks Keith. I sold the race car about 4 years ago, and havent looked back. It just got to the point where it wasn't any fun anymore. Thats the time to call it quits.

Like MT I am not much for tats but in your case I think it is a good thing. I just don't get the urge to cover a body in ink I guess.

I agree completely, I think less is best when it comes to tats. Not a big fan of having tattoo's that cover more skin than not.
