A sailor enlists the tattooers needle upon his own body to record the story of his seafaring life - his loves and hates, his triumphs and his achievements. A full-rigged ship showed the seaman had sailed around Cape Horn. A swallow tattoo reflected the hope of coming home safely. Seamen who were dockhands had a rope tattooed around the wrist to show their profession. The words 'hold' and 'fast' tattooed on the knuckles were to prevent a sailor’s hand from slipping on lines... This is a little homage to oldschool sailor tattoos and artists like Sailor Jerry and Ed Hardy.

Two colors on a white Tee.

Awesome style & layout and I dig the concept, even though Ed Hardy's name has been drug through the dirt with those shitty tees. Wish Jerry wasn't so smack dab in the center, though. 4

Man, so much abstract combo of imagery and yet it flows in a way that makes total sense. haha@telescope girl and nipple hearts. Awesome work as always, you NEED a shield next to your name.
