thirty.fifth..

tongan art part 2

so this past weekend i went back to LA to take a written test for the Los Angeles Fire Department.. while there this weekend, i figured i would get the 2nd sitting on my tattoo done.. here is a picture of it..

before

after

i have 1 more sitting to complete it and that is when it will really come to life.. i wanted this tattoo to represent itself as armor and i feel that it really is.. much respect to the artist..

are you familiar with the LAFD's written tattoo policy?

to my understanding, i believe the policy pretty much says that tattoos cannot be visible when in uniform.

i do know that when i have my class b short sleeve uniform shirt on, my tattoo does not show.. now when i have a t-shirt on, you can see the bottom of it..

i figure that if i need to wear a long sleeve shirt to cover it, that shouldn't be a problem..

any thoughts?

Dog I can't wait to go down for the third sitting and see King at work. Miss both you and shannon a lot. Look forward to seeing you in April.
