Tattoosday:Nautical Inspirations

Tuesday, February 14, 2012

Ahoy friends! (I know, I know gross. I couldn't help it.)  Happy Valentines Day!!  So I know, people are expecting a tattoosday that has hearts and arrows and lovey dovey-ness all over it, but I don't like to be predictable, (and I totally forgot that it was Valentines Day when I planned this post,) so instead, I'm going to give you pirates, sea monsters, and all things ocean-worthy.  (Because nothing says I love you like a sea monster attack.) 

I've been wanting to do this post for a long time now because of two very special pirates in my life, my wonderful father and brother, Big Al and Jonah...but it's kinda hard to pin pirates down to take photos.  Luckily Mama Fears was able to snap some shots so that I could share them with you all! Between the four of us three are tattooed, (we can't seem to talk Mama Fears into it yet,) and we have something like 12 tattoos between Jonah, Big Al, and myself.  Each of us has at least one piece that is nautical themed or related.  (I'll share my pictures soon!)  We're always joking how Big Al is eventually going to look like a human aquarium, aren't his tattoos fun? 

Jonah's anchor is so fun as well!

I'm in love with the coloring of this jellyfish tattoo.

I LOVE sharks.  So much that I recently seriously pondered going back to get my doctorate studying the effects of commercial chumming for diving trips on shark attacks in South Africa.  Shark Week is a literal holiday in my book...so I seriously love shark tattoos like these...
