Upon going to our community pool today, I realized that I don’t have nearly enough ink to fit in with the other parents of kids Nathan’s age. My lord, there’s barely any blank space on these peoples’ bodies!

I also realized I really want another tattoo. And I think I want to do it while I’m in LA in July. Nice full-circle poeticness about it considering I got my first and only tattoo when I was in Anaheim on a business fraternity trip when I was 21. 

I’m still debating what it will be, though. Part of me still wants a Rebel Alliance logo (likely without the Jedi Order logo, although this looks wicked)…


The other part feels I should display my Stormtrooper love with a Galactic Empire logo (without the Basic script)…


Or this cool blending of the two, but only in black…


Then there’s the music fan who wouldn’t mind showing my lifelong love for Kiss, but the Army logo would need to be in color, which I don’t want to do…


Or my first rock love Van Halen and having it done at a studio on or near the Sunset Strip would be amazing…


I even wanted to try creating something of my own incorporating details specific to Nathan. An ambigram of his name or his birthday or some such. 

So much to figure out. So little time.

Save your money!


I am sure whatever you get will be really cool! Those are all great ideas!


Like immediately after I published the post, I realized I’d like to do a combo Imperial logo and Stormtrooper helmet.
