For this sleeve I had to work around an existing outer bicep tattoo, which I blacked out in this photo because I forgot the artist's name who did it. This image is chock full of symbolism, from hidden dollar signs and a stomped-on flower, to blood on the axe and a turtle pulling on a shoelace. A very appropriate theme considering the direction things are heading...what with the Bush administration's loosening of various environmental regulations. I feel guilty every day that I'm not out in the streets taking action to change this forsaken place...large image back
