Default Tattoos of TBH

I know some folks on here hate tattoos. This thread isn't for you. Those of you with ink, let's see what you have and the story behind it if there is one! I love seeing good art work.

I have LOTS but I'll share a few. I added 5hrs to my right bicep last night with a Texas flair on the 3%. The ichthys fish has been there for years.. My other sleeve is East Tx themed on the lower half with some 'Merica on the bicep.

Should be pretty close to a finished product on mine this coming Sunday. I'll post pics after the session.




Question for you though Pineywoods... What would you say the pain scales of your arm would be? What is most sensitive? What is least sensitive?

That is some great work! I had forgot about your thread on that piece.

I have tattoos in a lot of different areas and I would say by far the elbow is the worst if you are packing color in there. I have an extremely high pain tolerance and it's pretty rough to be honest. Some people say up by the arm pit but that isn't that bad to me. The least sensitive to me would be the meaty areas of the outer arm, upper and lower.

Slowest moving tattoo progression EVERRR!

That artist is tough to get on the schedule with.

Good to know. I've heard the elbow is rough from a lot of people I've asked.

To me the elbows wasn’t bad at all . Inside the arm pit sucks but not to bad . My smallest tattoo was the most painful. Inside of my finger .

Pineywoods, I must admit... I never hated tattoos, but I never understood why someone would get ink all over their body and mess with what god gave ya.....

Until I was 54 yrs. old....




We lost our grandson after he was born.
It was devastating to my family.

My best friend of 53 yrs. who has some ink, had Parkers initials added out of respect for my daughter.

I was so touched, I did the same. So I can remember baby Parker every day.


I will never question someone for getting ink again.


RIP Parker james Thresher

Pappa Bear and his two cubs. I love the mountains and the pines and sage so I had ten put in. I also have a caveman hunter that is very similar to the old addicted to the outdoors logo. Basically....feel like I was hardwired to be a hunter and that it comes from somewhere in my ancient ancestry.

They're to create the illusion that the skin is ripping open, exposing the art underneath. Everything around the tattoo is very fresh and inflamed. That's what we were working on that day the picture was taken.

All 3 of these represent my kids. My son's first kill with a bow was a boar, so I got the boar head, and the date hidden in there on which he killed it. My daughters favorite animal is a rabbit. So I had her pick from a selection of 5 designs. She picked my favorite one as her favorite. Her initials are in the antler of the jack-a-lope. Then the 3 arrows represent all of my kids. The scripture is fittings. All of my kids birthdates are on the arrow shafts in roman numerals.

1989 tattoo in San Diego when I was a 18 year old Marine (don't have any better pics).




Recent work to cover up an old tattoo that I didn't like.

We spend on head lamps spot lights and batteries. Sorry about the post, with all the big pics I got confused. We don't buy corn, the guy that we hunt his feeder at night buys it I guess. Feeders are always full.
