Days go by

Sure the hourglass makes you think of time moving forward, but it’s the old school style of this tattoo that reigns in the forward movement.  While the sands are constantly flowing, the world outside is holding on to the past, making sure that the lessons of the past are remembered and carried forward.

Camping Buddies

One of the best things anyone can do during the summer is head out into the wilderness, set up a tent, and get away from the world for a while.  For some it’s about getting away from the hustle and bustle of every day life, others take the time to commune with nature, and for a good number of people, it’s a chance to get together with some friends and do some bonding.  For these guys, it’s definitely a bonding experience.  Come rain or shine, these three will always have something to remember their days spent camping in the woods.

So here’s how Alan looked pre-cutting.

To see how his mug looks now, you know what to do.
