dear rg,

i read on your blog that you are in search of a new tattoo for your “lower back/buttocks” (hehehe you said buttocks).  with that in mind, may i suggest the following art?  i think either would suit you well.

tattoo update

June 9, 2008

hey folks,

i’m sicker than a dog, so just a brief note – had a session today with my tattoo artist to begin finishing my sleeve.  for those that haven’t been with me for the entire saga, my left arm is a sleeve based in buddhist and asian imagery.  half way through the process, he up and moves to los angeles, so it’s been slow going. he flys back a couple of times a year to finish me and a couple other guys large pieces.  we’re so close to being done i can taste it.

my relationship with trevor is such that i don’t really have a plan for the finish of the piece, neither does he – i sit in the chair, we chat a bit, then he goes to work – i trust him completely.  today was one of those days where we had no real plan; we through a couple of ideas around, talked to the other guys in the shop (steady tattoo) – we landed on a cool buddha “vision” appearing out of the clouds above mt fuji.

what you see below is the buddha…. it will actually heal lighter.  i’m really happy with his totally zen expression.  when we are done it will actually look like it’s emerging from the clouds.  way cool.

hoping to get one more session with him before he leaves on friday.

thoughts (and let’s ignore the lack of a “gunshow” shall we?)?

beef. it’s what’s for dinner.
