My buddy Kyle Crowell, at Torch Tattoo in Anaheim, CA did this piece for me last night. It is an interpretation of the infamous eyeball slicing scene from the 1929 film, “Un Chien Andalou”, directed by Luis Buñuel and Salvador Dalí. This film is also referenced in the Pixies song, “Debaser”.
This is a 3D Tattoo done on a ladies leg. Although I uploaded the image I would appreciate it if you fine people would actually reblog the post itself that I made last night from here http://mrcheyl.tumblr.com/post/30424397113/3d-leg-tattoo-sick . It seems to be garnering a lot of attention as many people have never seen it before.
I don’t really like going on about my tattoos, but this one IS special. Basically I am a Navy spouse, and didn’t really expect to make any *close* friends among the other spouses when I moved with the Husbot to Japan. I’m kind of a weirdo with anxiety problems! But I was happily proven wrong and I ended up meeting two wonderful ladies, one of whom was half-Mexican (like my husbot), and both of whom had grown up on the Southwest border. They were my best friends in Yokosuka, we vigorously explored Japan together with a growing number of Japanese girlfriends, and they taught me to make proper Mexican food at home, for which the husbot was grateful! A Sugar Skull Geisha seemed an apropo memento of that time.
