lukewessman This nautical star is the first real tattoo that I ever made. When I realized how permanent and bloody it was I got so nervous. I had done a few prior but this I consider to be the first, it was on my older brother. (I took this picture last week) I did the tattoo circa '96 / '97 #history #tattoo #beforeitwascool #boldwillhold 2h
  •   marcorriols Its funny to think that 96-97 is not that long ago but its still 18 years ago which it is alot of time. conclusion: start one day even if you aint the best, do it everyday, and someday youll be able to look back and see how far you came 2h
  •   pjemmings Would you say a nautical star is a must have tattoo for a true collector? @lukewessman 1h
  •   _cyndy_t_ I have one too. On my foot. :) 50min
  •   emscottla Permanent and bloody for sure.. 44min
  •   lukewessman @pjemmings no 31min
  •   pjemmings Haha!! @lukewessman 29min
  •   lukewessman @pjemmings I say that because I don't have one and I consider myself very much a collector ! It's a good classic tattoo though and has some fun sailor meaning 25min
  •   pjemmings It was my third tattoo right on the hand @lukewessman I'm also a pretty heavy collector, and would agree with you it is very much a classic tattoo. One leg and two cheeks left and saving room for an @lukewessman original. 20min

lukewessman I've always loved weddings - I've been to a lot of them. This was by far one of the most beautiful. The most beautiful location here in the #Pocanos and the most beautiful people. #grant #Williams #lagweddings @courtneydgrant and me post wedding. #gentleman #lady #nocane #vmas (I danced this evening. 6 weeks post op) #wgstyle 3d
