Funny, this is the sort of thing I would have thought I would have posted here right after it happened. I guess I didn’t.
My parents gave me a nice cash gift for the completion of my CMA at my convocation ceremony. I wanted to get something that would remind me of that time, but I don’t really wear jewelry (save my wedding ring), I hate watches, and cufflinks just weren’t right.
So, I settled on getting a tattoo. I’d always thought about it, but it just never happened. Now, I had a good reason to get one.
I know Shane Turgeon at Shades of Grey Tattoo, as we worked together back in my days in Pay-TV. I trusted him to have a good shop and great guys to work with for getting work done. Plus, as I planned on getting something Star Wars related, I figured the shop run by the guy that wrote/compiled The Force in the Flesh was probably the right place.
So, here’s what I ended up with:
I had originally thought I’d do just the Imperial Logo, since I’ve always been a fan of the Galactic Empire. But, as I thought about it, I had the idea of using the emblem as a moon, and have a Star Destroyer passing in front of it. I gave this idea to Wayde Dunn who concocted the final product.
