Wow I love how much crabbing can make an influence in someone life to get a tattoo. That’s the power of crabs

That looks so rad!! It does have Gary's eyes!!! Gosh, that must be really hard to have something like that on the back of your calf - It would drive me nuts not being able to look at it!! I can't wait to see the finished product!!!
Truly blessed to have incredible creatures, wonderful friends and my amazing family in my life!! I'm very thankful & grateful for all of them! www.thehealthyhermit.com

Mirrors. The answer to your problem is mirrors. ;)

Tattoos are funny! After a while you kind of forget you have them. They sort of become like a mole, freckle, or birthmark, you know it's there but see it as a part of you!

I go in for more coloring on mine in November.

Xenocrab started on her HC tattoo of Friday! It's as realistic as mine is cartoony! AJ at Totem Tattoo is incredible at bio-mechanical, plants and wildlife. You can see his work on Instagram at AjTattooGuy.

Ha! True Aussie! I'd have a kink in my neck looking at the back of my calf though! ;)

Can't wait to see Xeno's!

No pain, no gain ;)
But yeah, ditto that if Xeno is willing to show!
