Tattoo times!

It's and exciting day in the Dowdy Studio! Dylan is getting his first Dowdy Studio tattoo. While he's not the first to get a Dowdy tattoo, it's still superery dupery just as awesome.

Dylan has been talking about getting inked up with our artwork for a long time. For one, why not? and for two, it's a good excuse to cover up an old tattoo. So the story goes: Once upon a time, at one of those young hip teenager parties back in the day, young Dylan had his friend tattoo a character on his arm. At the time Dylan's lady-friend verified that it meant "Big D", his nickname given to him by his friends, but come to find out later that it just meant "big". Dylan wasn't heart broken by the news of the newly discovered meaning, he actually thought it was funny. As Dylan does stand 6'2", he saw it as more of a warning to small people to beware of big person over here.

before:  farewell "big" tattoo, during: "Does it hurt?"

After - Well, it's not quite finished. Good art takes some time. This one has a solid 5 hours on it and it looks freaking awesome and Dylan couldn't be happier with his new Chief Lion!

Super thanks to Nick Ley at Saints and Sinners in the Bishop Arts District for the slam'n job!
