    Very cool! How long did that take? The detail looks good for something that size. Happy Birthday!!!

    Nice tat Wyndell! Interesting choice of location and image!! I like it!

    One question though, as you are a member of a Lodge within the body of the GLoTX; why did you choose to exclude the G from the center of the Square & Compasses? No big issue for me, just a question.

    It took about 1 hour to get done and didnt hurt near as bad I thought it would. 1st reason I left off the G is its more traditional as the G is a rather modern invention. 2nd was practicality. Many shops wont do finger ink. Due to the constant abuse and washing fingers take, and how thin the skin is, they have a tendency to wear off. The more detail you add the more it will wear out. In fact I was told I would most likly have to get a touch up every few years and that the middle light blue and points will be the first to go.

    But its still cheaper than the ring I was gonna get lol

    Very nice! Anybody know of any brothers who are in the tattoo business? I have come up with a design that I may eventually have done.

    I've been thinking of a ring, and also wanted a new tat. Guess this will cover both.
    Thanks Wing...

    Just be aware that not all shops will do fingers for the reasons sighted above. In fact, the shop I went to that did my cowboy skull with what looks like a badge on the cowboy hat (actually a S&C!) wouldnt even consider doing fingers.

    So many ideas for ink, so little time and money!

    lol Mom and family did scare me out of it till I got smart enough to pick something good but I missed the window now I am scared of my wife and explaining that I spent a bunch of money on a tattoo instead of Geiko. lol Kids and bills keep me from my tatoo now but maybe in the future when I make more money.

    So I'm from Lytle and I am looking for a brother artist. I've seen the three listed above but was wondering if there were any closer to me.

    I do like the ring by the way. I personally am looking for the S&C's with all the working tools under or coming out from under the skin to be put on my arm somewhere.

    Thank you in advance.

    Id just ask folks you see and work with that have good looking ink who did it and where. I always take in a rough idea of what I want and tell them to go to town and rework etc. I got my first ink back in 79 (thats 1979 not 1879!) at a place next to Waterhole #3 in San Antonio. He was for sure an old school prison artist and his work showed it. (Thick heavy lines that quickly starting bluring)
