    Oct 2, 2008, 6:44 PM - UPDATE: Fettoo #1

    Hooray! I got the time to finally get started on my Boba tat. I'm getting the line work done tonight. I'm getting excited. I'm using a Gentle Giant bust for the design. It's going on my left shin.

    I just got home from the tattoo shop. It really didn't hurt as bad as I thought it would. Not that there weren't any "magical" spots. There a few details that arent there yet but I'll get those taken care of next round.

    I could have freehanded it but the image printed out the size I wanted it so I traced it on the backside on a light board and then mirrored it, and thanks.

    It is actually a trade I made with the tattooist. I had something he wanted ant it was just collecting dust in my garage, so... But had I actually paid it would have pro'lly been around $400 to 450.


    Here are some pics so far.


    The stencil.


    In the works.


    The artist at work.


    Line work done.


    My leg from the knee down. So far.

    Ugh... Shin tattoos are my biggest fear.
    I have extensive work all over my arms, chest, and ribcage, but I'm not sure I could ever sit through a shin tat.



    Looking good so far.
    Can't wait to see it finished!

    It was nothing compared to the knees and feet. If you have can handle your chest and ribcage you could handle the shin, piece of cake. However, now that I think about it... ask me in the morning.

    that is a great tattoo!! I like the fact you used the statue as reference, because the pose is just... Fett.

    ha ha, little too much for me though, respect for doing that, had enough with just the skull logo on my upper arm...

    Hey T-Bone, that's awesome!!! Congrats on the awesome tattoo! Would you mind if I used your drawing/tracing to paint a new piece? If so do you have a hi-rez version you could send me?

    Thanks bruv,

    Thanks all. It's a little tender this morning but being a redhead I've had sunburns that make this feel like a scratch. I just cant wait to color it now. Then start filling in around the rest of my leg, over time, that is. Then we finish the right leg. The artist and I talked a few ideas over and I think he's just as excited as I am. My wife just saw it for the first time this morning and she liked it too.

    Just a small update. Finally got a little color added. I have to be honest. This time around it hurt like Hell in a few places. At least one more sitting, probably two or three, and I'll be done for a while... maybe.


    Color: Round One.

    I think it's actually called "True Green." It's really dark, too dark, so we added a little yellow to lighten it up a little.

    They were already talking about maybe sending a pic of it in to one of the tattoo mags when it is finished. When both legs are finally "sleeved" though they'll definitely send pics. I just need to finish filling the left one up, get a good line drawing of Slave Leia in the "Look how sexy" pose from ROTJ the posterfor the right shin, and then fill around it. We talked about maybe on my calves having the death star as a center piece on the left and and have it blowing up on the right. Arranging them so that when I put my legs together it looks makes a third death star with side blowing out of it. I dont know if it will work but the idea looks good in my head. Who knows what will end up happening though? It's a living WIP.

    It's been a while since I'v posted an update on this. After the last session I posted I unfortunately picked up an infection at either the lab or the morgue and the green took a hard hit. But we've since then carried on and pretty much finished the color. In a couple weeks we'll go in and start touch ups which, to my understanding, will be a complete re-color. I should have known that lack of pain on the linework would not last. There have been quite a few "magical" moments since then and I'm sure a whole lot more to come. Here is what it looks like now along with the leia piece that will be on the right shin. I know the blue is a little too dark but we're going to go over it with white at the end.

    The one on the side of my leg kind of tickled...haha... I can imagine the shin being a lot worse I want one across my back, is it really sensitive on the spine?
