    Doug- My tattoos are all awesome to me. I have 20+ hours on my sleeve alone, back probably about 15. I couldn't pick just one. I have a few different artists. The top half of my sleeve was done by Paris at Paris Tattoos in Charlotte and is a version of Alice in Wonderland. The bottom half was done by John Carroll also at Paris Tattoos, who unfortunately passed away last January. R.I.P. The art is based on Brian Froud, with a little of John flavor. My back tattoos were done in PA and NJ. The peace sign, steele, waterfall, and writing were done by Mike E Cheese. The cross was my first tattoo and don't remember who did it. Its just flash, everything else it custom and badass!!!!!

    Cyrielle- My tattoo is bad ass for it represents all of my family. My brothers and sister all have the same father which is why everything is connected with black tribal. He is our connection; he is currently is prison which is why his initals are enclosed in the mustang and that's where I've know him the longest. However my mother raised me on her own so her flower is the biggest and it is colored "chrome". Chrome is not one color it's a reflection of colors around it and I am a reflection of my mother more so than anyone else.

    Amanda- My tattoo is only visible under black light, so it can only be seen in certain situations and sometimes shocks those who do not know it's there. It is a mixture of my own design plus the Tool Lateralus eyes on the sides and top in honor of the music that helped design me. I think it creative, unique, and a good compromise for having such a large tattoo that I may not always want seen.

    Robbie- This is the 2nd part to my traditional japanese sleeve. On the other side of my arm, I have a coy dragon. I really like this "honya mask" because the artist that did it was the coolest guy you will ever meet. I got screwed by another artist and Marc stepped in and gave me, what I think, to be the best tattoo that I could ask for. Clean lines, bold colors. LOVE MY TATTOO.

    Keith- It is my military tribute tat. I got it from an artist locally(where I grew up) after a few years of living through ptsd I had to have this for anyone to see. Technically it is facing the wrong way but I insisted because of the nature of the story of combat that made me want to never forget even if I get alzheimers or some disease that makes ya forget, I won't. I'll always know "I'VE BEEN THERE".

    Tim - This is my first and only tattoo. It is a black swan, which represents being separate from the traditional crowd. Swans are not usually an aggressive creature but yet this one is in an aggressive stance and they of course are almost always white but this one is black. There is a lot of awesome symbolism in it and I just love the image in and of itself.

    Jason- Won't see this plastered around every shop in the worlds flash. Sorry its difficult to get a pic of, Mr. Mauney the artist had difficulty getting pics of it for his portfolio. Among my circle of fly fishermen and tackle shops it draws a lot of attention.

    Brittany- I think my tattoo is bad ass because it is my dream tattoo that I had wanted from the beginning and it is my 4th tattoo (and last most likely). The tattoo artist free handed it on my ribs and I think it looks awesome personally. It has 7 music notes and 13 stars both very important numbers to me! And it combines two of the major loves in my life.

    Nicholas- This tattoo was done by Jason Drager. It embodies what a good color tattoo should have; perfect line work, awesome shading, great and subtle blending between colors, brightness and boldness, and it seems to have a depth of field. The tattoo is a Korean inspired design consisting of a dragon holding an orb resembling the center of the South Korean flag, a Korean woman wearing a traditional Korean wedding dress (Hanbok) adorned with the South Korean national flower (Mugunghwa), and a Korean warrior on his noble steed.

    Allyson- It's cover art from American Head Charge's album The Feeding and the lyrics are from their song "Ridicule". That album helped me get through a rough break up and death in my family. As a business professional, my clients and coworkers are always shocked to see it on me. And who doesn't love a good nurse clown?

    Steve- It was actually a joke at first to get a leprechaun tattoo. Then I thought to myself, why not get a awesome looking leprechaun tattoo. It rocks because the artist is phenomenal (luke scheid) and also its something different then you normally see. Not to mention its a badass leprechaun tattoo :)
