The Rising Tide

Sayeth Joseph Minek:

I wanted to get a tattoo to symbolize my constant searching for happiness (the surface). It is also part of lyrics from the Stick To Your Guns song “Looking For The Surface,” which I love. It’s also a cover-up of a penguin I got, who is now drowning, damn global warming!

(Tattoo by Travis at In The Blood Tattoo in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.)

  1. @3 – I pretty sure the penguin was in the bottom right of the piece, i still think you can make out part of its wing.

    Besides that, solid tattoo. And i’m loving the pair of thursday doves as well.

  2. I love the muted reds in the tattoo.

    but i’m with trailorparkjesus, the thursday doves are great.

  3. the penguin is at the bottom right, and the piece isn’t completely done yet.
    we still have to another shade of blue and maybe some seafoam green.
