Inked

Working in the motorcycle industry, I've certainly seen my fair share of tattoos, but until now I've managed to keep my skin ink-free. That's all about to change.

You've seen full-arm tattoos, or sleeves. Well, I've decided to get a pant leg. Yep, I'm going to cover my entire right leg with the final frame of Hieronymous Bosch's The Garden of Earthly Delights. Sure, it's dismal, but I usually wear jeans anyway.

ahhh...I remember studying that piece in my art class in college.

if i remember correctly, the left panel depicts the garden of Eden. the middle shows a utopian society, and the last panel illustrates Hell.

that class changed my life.

I believe you're right. I expect having my entire leg tattooed to suck badly, so I went with the hell panel.

I'm a big fan of Bosch. This was released around Halloween last year and I had hours of fun trying to name that horror flick. Enjoy!

tuth+gnail: Welcome! I just looked at that game for a brief second, and I can tell it's going to be fun. I'll need my wife's help with it, though.

B-I swear I dreamed last night that I got my leg tatooed. Just my leg. Not a full leg, but several big peices. Wow.

SleekPelt said...

Seriously, zee? Can that possibly be a coincidence?

once again, we have eerie timing, B. While sitting in the hospital the past few weeks, I've realized that my two daughters names and my wife's name can form a circle when spelled out together. (KatrinAnnalieAnniKa) I'm thinking I have to get my first ink with this as a part of it.

Center panel, center of the page, about 20% up. Is the one figure stuffing flowers up the other one's ass!? Utopian society indeed.
