    I feel like I've seen that design somewhere before, not the bass clef, but the lines it's embedded in.

    but I can't place a finger on it.

  4. For some reason it makes me think of artwork from one of the Sublime CDs.

    I know I have seen the double bass clef things, but I really dig the celtic thing with those colors!

    Sweet!

    A friend of mine introduced me to a bassist who has the same double bass cleff idea but made to look like a hurricane or black hole or galaxy or something..... it was done free hand. It kinda looks like Ben's avatar.

    Peace

    Actually, that does look pretty cool. I'm not usually down with music notation related tattoos, but that one isn't bad.

    I'm waiting for somebody to get a Megaman playing a P-Bass tattoo.

    because then he has to live with a tattoo of megaman playing a P-bass


    (and also because he plays a steinberger)

    That always helps.

    C'mon, Megaman playing a Steiny? It'd be so 80s it'd hurt!

    If I get a Battletoads tattoo, will you get a Megaman?
     
  15. The celtic design is some flash I found, and the double bass thing I stole from Micheal Manring's site. The stuff was put together by talkbasser incognito, I don't think he posts any more.
     
  16. That tattoo is sweet! I'm loving the colours in it. On your back tho, in the centre....must have been quite painful.
     
  17. i remember the tatoo's thread from months back when you were talking about this!
    looks really good man!!! :D

    :smug:
     
  18. God yes. Anyone that has ever said "It doesn't hurt" needs to be shot, then have their body defiled.

    that was stupid matt, and he didn't set his testicles on fire, he set zippo lighter fluid on fire. :smug:
