Time to get my first newb post under my belt.

I recently began designing my next tattoo and had difficulty finding others that had tattoos relating to woodworking. Im sure this is a pretty diverse group. Anyone have one they want to share?

A dovetail armband tatt inspired my tee print.

A complicated one would be Yosemite Sam surfing a 16in jointer with a power plane in one hand and a no 7 plane in the other.

My mate Scotty’s Moko inspired tatt. by a Moko artist.

I’ve been considering my logo as a wrist band tatt for about a year now. The colors would be primary rubic cube. I’m a muso, it would be either on my fingerboard wrist or the picking / bowing wrist.

doubtful. But then I’m not certified in tattooing.

I have four. This is the only one thats convenient to photograph at the moment. (Will see if I figured out how to post a photo.) As for the design of the new one, I don’t have any sketches yet. I’m waiting to hear back from the artist and hammer out a design before I visit his area. It will likely incorporate a realistic style Rockabilly Pin-up girl holding some sort of woodworking tool and sitting on a workbench or a partially completed chair or something. May also have her sitting on my kitchen table which was my biggest project to date.

I like the concept. You should visit the massive “Workbench” thread for some classic lumberjock bench poses.

Became a bit of a germ-a-phobe working in the prison system. I saw to many infected tat’s. Also learned that Tats are one of the leading transmitters of Hep C. Not happening to me.

I saw a guy once who had his whole leg tattooed below the knee in a wood grain pattern – he said it was so he could be a pirate.

I’ll double check but the shop’s website didn’t make it look like a prison.

Been awhile since I put the post out there but I did settle on a woodworking tattoo. The picture isn’t the greatest but its hard to take a pic of your own calf. She is holding a woodworking mallet and chisel.
