Tattoo Tuesday - My Husband's First Tattoo



In honor of the blogs that run Tattoo Tuesday, I decided I would post my husband's first tattoo.  

The Concept:  My husband Corbin's favorite book is 'Armor' by John Steakley.  In the book, they wear this bad ass armor and my husband has always been fascinated by geckos.  So the concept of an "armored gecko" tattoo was born.  Someone had done a concept art of what they thought the armor in the book would look like.  Corbin loved it so much he handed the concept art off to Rafael (one of our local tattoo artist's at Creative Vision's) to mock up what his tattoo would look like.  

The photo below is what it looked like after he was done with the outlining appointment.


The following photo is what the tattoo looked like after he got the first round of shading done yesterday.  His next appointment is September 5th and should be the final shading and touch up of some of the line work as well as the blue coloring on the face mask.  
I can't wait to see the finished product!


On a side note, I will be getting my very first tattoo as well next Tuesday.  I will post a photo as soon as I get home!  Wish me luck!

Do you have tattoos?  If so, what are they of?  Where did you get your first?  How bad did it hurt?
