you'll be there when i die, tattoo (365-81)

Day 81 of 365: a year in songs and photos

Song: The Who, Tattoo

(this is a pretty clever song by the Who, if you’ve never heard it)

This was….the second to last day of our trip. As mentioned in the other photos from this day, we spent five plus hours in the tattoo shop (Legacy Ink Tattoo, 21st Street, Sacramento) while Todd’s best friend Nelson worked on his arm. Their friend Dustin stopped by for a while and hanging out with them was a good way to wind down our trip. We had been walking around so much that it was nice to just kick back.

Dustin and Nelson are Todd’s friends from AA (along with Nelson’s girlfriend Lorraine) and they are a kick ass bunch of people. They’re part of the reason I can’t wait to go back to Sacramento this summer.

I think I’m done uploading for today. I still have a ton of Sacramento pics and almost all of the San Francisco pics to put up. But I think I should think about unpacking…

Or maybe doing one more 365 photo..

I put a shit ton of pics up at flickr today. You know how much a shit ton is? It’s.. a lot.

art every day – 11/6/107

i feel my luck could change

Day 6 of Art Every Day:

I Feel My Luck Could Change

Inspired by Radiohead’s Lucky.

Had a frustrating night, as far as getting a photo for the project goes. Had a headache all day, so I was impatient and irritable and nothing seemed to come out right. Can’t get a winner every day. But I’m determined to see this project through to completion, even if that means posting something on nights when I’m less than happy with the results. Thanks to Todd for once again sitting through a session of me using his body for my own purposes that don’t include anything sexual. The royalty check is in the mail.

All my bad mouthing about California must have had quite an affect on the man, because last night he sent me this pic on the phone:


You can do things like this on a whim when your best friend is a tattoo artist and needs a guinea pig to try out a new font.

As if he didn’t already walk around New York advertising that he’s from California (the excessive use of “dude” gives it away), this ought to hammer home the point.

Yea, we get it. California.

(he comes home tonight and I have yet to have a Worst Case Scenario breakdown!)

tattoos, by request

back

JFH asked nicely to see a fuller version of Todd’s tattoos…or maybe he just wanted to see them without having to look at that cheesecake pose again. The pictures might suck because I took them at 6am (pre-coffee) and my camera is being a bitch. I really need to swap up. If anyone has a used D50/60/70 they are looking to sell, holla back. I mean….email me.

Click all for biggie size.

barcode anyone worth their punk street cred knows what that is.

4 stuff on shoulder. i should probably make up a story here about being lost in the las vegas desert. but it’s too early.

shoulder lucky stuff. you’re gonna have to ask him if you want explanations of these.

bf2 that one again just because i liked both pictures.

spoon spoon!!!

And there ya go.

I’m betting he comes home from California next week with another one. It’s nice to have friends that are tattoo artists.

Some time next month we’re going together to get tattoos that we decided on a long time ago. I just don’t know where I want to put mine.

Anyhow, it’s Saturday. The yard and house await. A renovator’s work is never done.

I think that goes for body renovations, too.

(i just realized i’m missing the front tattoo. i think i have an old picture of that, though. ah, there we go).
