Got a 1/4 of a tat on my right upper arm. Went to get the old Arsenal crest, but have a phobia about needles. He started on the scroll at the bottom and I had fainted 3 times by the time he finished that bit. It says "Victoria Concordia Crescit". He said that he would leave it there and I could get some cream from the Doc and come back and he would sit the rest on the top. I never went back. Arsenal changed their crest the following season and totally removed the scroll at the bottom

War Hero
Black Panther …forearm…….Union St Guzz
Dragon and no. 13…forearm…..Nee Soon…Singapore
Penguin on an ice flow with caption “Across the Antarctic Circle”….upper arm ….Pinkies….Wan chi, Hong Kong.

The last one (which is the best) was done manually with a needle stuck in a cork and a little tapping stick.

The most memorable one I’ve seen was a killick stoker in Sea Eagle who had the hunt tattoo on his back.
This was, starting down from his neck, first the riders in all their finery, then the pack of hounds and finally the foxes tail sticking out of his ass.

Always got a squeal of delight from the ladies.
