I am a survivor of lung cancer stage3 for seven years tomorrow.
I had an upper right lobectomy surgery on 1/10/2010 @stage1.
Copyrighted tattoo designs that are mass-produced and sent to tattoo artists are known as "flash", a notable instance of industrial design.
Before that one, my girlfriend and I got “matching” tattoos saying “vegan”, also at Scapegoat.” We think Brian does great work, check out their website and the chilling poster he designed to benefit the relief efforts on the Gulf.
Thanks a bunch for sending this awesome double feature and most importantly thanks for being vegan!
The word tattoo was brought to Europe by Cook, when he returned in 1769 from his first voyage to Tahiti and New Zealand.
In his narrative of the voyage, he refers to an operation called "tattaw".
And that goes for everyone who has sent in pictures, emails, comments and suggestions; thanks a bunch and have an awesome week!
