These beauties are on the hands of Victoria and here is her story:
This was my first tattoo and i recieved it when i was in traning for the Army in South Carolina from a tattoo parlor called 5 Points.
Because technically were not supposed to have tattoos on our hands i got a white ink tattoo.
The message tattooed is “GOLD LION” which is the title of a song by the band Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
This picture was taken about 15 minuets after i recieved the tattoo, since then it got infected and scared over. Some of the lettering is un readable, but i love it. Its true what everyone says, once you get one tattoo your gonna want more. Now i cant stop getting more tattoos.
These were sent in by Jake Tong, tattoo artist. His story:
Hi – my name is Jake – I have a website www.jaketong.com. I am a tattooist/artist/professional jerk. Made popular from Robert Frost excerpt in the movie/book “The Outsiders” , I got STAY GOLD on my knuckles for a few reasons- A. To me stay gold kinda means stay young as long as you can. B. Kinda was a way for me to say “I’m set in my career”. I’m also stoked ’cause they were done by Bob Creepy, who was my mentor. I owe a lot to the dude.
