Bass themed tattoos

Discussion in 'Bass Humor & Gig Stories [BG]' started by Gecko 5, Aug 6, 2005.

  1. Just wondering if any TBer's have a bass themed tattoo ?
    Anything bass related .
  2. Yup. Probably not highly original, but I got a bass clef on my right shoulder.

    I want to get a small bass clef somewhere small on my wrist/hand, and I want to have the exact same thing on my other hand.

    about a half a year ago, I wanted to get a celtic cross put on top of my right hand. However, a lot of artists won't do hands because having ink in such a visible spot makes it hard for you to do important things like...getting a job. Lots of employers won't hire you if you have a visible tattoo, for some odd reason or another. I'm glad I didn't go for it, mostly because of the whole "fitting it into my life" part, but also because I'm not nearly as religious as I used to be.

    I kind of borrowed the idea for mine from an avatar I seen on this site. I gave the guy a picture of the tiger and one of my guitar and now it's on my left shoulder.

    The Beginner: I think your tat is pretty cool... it just took me a while to make it out. Abstract art tattoos are kinda weird.

    it would be more in the spot of joe nerves, and all the guys I know with tats just have to wear soemthign to cover them up, and where I would get mine I could just put one fo those athletic sweatbands over it. It would be REALLY small too, like the size of a nickel. It could also probabaly be covered up with a band-aid.
  20. I wanna get this tattooed on my right hand with the legs going down my middle and index finger. That way when I play bass, he dances. For those of you that don't know, thats Jaco. I think it was a friend of his that drew the picture. I love it.
