    Figured this would be the best place to ask. This was my last tattoo, for The Fragile, on my left arm. I am going to pair it with a tattoo done in the same style for The Downward Spiral on my right arm. I had initially decided on a partially curled millipede (mimicking the cover of Closer to God) but recently thought that maybe I should instead have a moth since that's the artwork for the actual album rather than a single from that era.
    I know this is probably being way more picky than I should be, but if anyone's going to understand it would be NIN fans who also get tattoos.

    since the millipede appears on multiple halos from that period (including the disc of TDS) i would say it's era-specific and perfect. while i like the moth, you would have to make it gigantic (in comparison to the flower) to have it even remotely match, and that might look a bit odd. it's also nowhere near as iconic of an image.

    Goddamn @scotty 79 , the woman's face is especially stunning. and, that's REALLY badass, @eversonpoe , that you and your mom got matching ink.

    as for me, I'm fucking 39, with all sorts of ideas for tattoos, but i still don't have any. i sure might get one, though, next time i go to Denver

    Now that I'm getting some funds saved up I'm thinking is time for some new ink.

    Realized I hadn't yet posted the progress shot of my back. Only another 3 three hour sits and it should be banged out. Never get tattooed on your sides, fml.
