Michael J. Fox Meets Tommy Lee - AGAIN!


My super conservative twenty-three-year-old son has gone and gotten himself another tattoo.  This one is on the underside of his upper arm and on the opposite arm from his first tattoo.  If you can't tell, you are looking at the f-hole of a cello with a Bible verse superimposed on it.  The Bible verse is Isaiah 38:20 which says, "The Lord will save me, and we will sing with stringed instruments all the days of our lives in the temple of the Lord."  

The tattoo took over three hours, and there are still a few tweaks the tattoo artist wants to do in a couple of weeks.  Brad's arm just got too irritated, and the muscle starting twitching before he could finish.  Apparently that part of the arm is a sensitive spot.  Sounds fun, huh?  Brad's girlfriend accompanied him and watched the whole thing. Patient girlfriend.

I just hope Brad doesn't get to be my age and regret these tattoos.  If I had a tattoo on the underside of my arm, I think it would now be swaying and swinging in the breeze!

Stacey, you know that is the ONLY reason I never have gotten a tattoo. I always imagine myself at 70 years old with it and my probable regret. What will probably happen is that I'll regret at 70 I didn't go ahead and just do it back in my twenties. I guess my birthmark on my arm will have to do. Au naturale...

I love your son's creativity though. Great verse!
