Wow, that sounds complicated. Hope it goes well. I'm thinking of getting more tattoos, but still deciding.

Yeah, the tattoo industry and it's recipients often limit themselves to the trends, when nearly the full spectrum of art styles are available.

I dont think so. It fits the space quite well. I'm sure he loved it. I like the mix if mechanical and flesh. Did he come up with idea?
