last night i added to my collection of tattoos
i had a new school swallow,
its hard to explain the difference between old school and new school tattoos.
The old school style of tattooing seen in the earlier half of the 20th century used symbols that celebrated patriotism and similar values and were done by electric tattoo machines.

After the second world war, tattoos started to become associated with gangsters and juvenile delinquents. When shoddy sterilization practices sparked an outbreak of hepatitis in 1961, the scene was forced even further underground. But after new legislation was passed and updated health codes were implemented, interest was renewed by a younger generation which forged the new school style we see today. New technology combined with fresh ideas has resulted in tattoos that are bold, and bright and utilize heavy outlines.

this is it done by my very own stu pot
it is sore but it will look brill when it is healed
it is done on my thigh but i wont subject you to the whole thing
