    Fett Tattoo this weekend that you'll all be proud of.

    Hi all,

    I'm getting tattooed by Californian Alexis Vaatete this weekend at the London Tattoo Convention. I'm getting this photo of Boba on my entire calf:

    He is a very impressive tattoo artist, here's a link to his page: Art by Alexis Vaatete - Lake Forest, CA - Artist | Facebook

    I'll post photos on Sunday evening

    UPDATE: Photo of the tatt! So happy!

    That should be really cool. Are you going color or B&W?

    Full colour. Going to take 7-8 hours in one sitting. I'm going to die!

    the pain can be addictive, i have a few and want more, too busy spending it on my Fett! but the Fett will end up covering my old stuff on my right arm may be, any how tats feel good, good luck with the work.
    cheers

    I have so far had 13 hours on my chest & right arm. So another 8 hours can't hurt!

    Perhaps may just wished you had. You are much braver than me

    That it is! I was OK everywhere on my calf except when my artist got up to the back of my knee. That area made me whimper like a little baby!

    I've had this:

    So I'm fairly confident it won't be as bad as this

    I lucked into having a very good artist friend decide to take up tattooing....after he had a little practice he offered to do my upper sleeve for free (see profile pic) 6 hours, one sitting, $0.00!!!

    Right guys. This is a fresh photo, but it's looking SICK! 7 1/4 hours at the convention, to finish it up at his hotel room for another 1 3/4. So a total of 9 hours in one day. Here is a photo!

    Wow looking good! It has seriously nice details like the chest display and the face in the visor. I bet you are stoked!

    Yeah man. Couldn't be happier with it. He's going to touch anything up for free at next year's convention. I might get him to beef up the range-finder but other than that, I'm over the moon!
