    I know this doesn't have anything directly to do with Smoking but I am excited to be getting a new Tattoo on Saturday! Here is a pic of my drawing I've been working on....Still working on the background. It will be going on my left Bicep.


    The Rhino is my Power Animal...They remind me of... Me. Mostly quiet and like to keep to myself. Just want to eat in peace...But dont piss me off!  or ....CHARGE!!!

    Sorry in advance if this is not appropiate and remove this post if you feel you need to oh great and powerful Moderators!

    Now that's a awesome tat, I like that one. I have 5 myself and the newest is almost 20 years old. Did you draw that?

    For the most part... The basic shape of the rhino I found on an internet Gaming ad. I added the shading and the background and the grasses. I am going to add one of those african trees to it too...far off in the distance.

    Nice drawing and that will make a great tat. I have one on my left upper arm. I am not the type at all to have one, but I was tutoring a beautiful 15 year-old girl who had terminal cancer. She was from off the streets and had never learned to read. Her only wish before she died was to learn to read. She read Cat in the Hat all by herself two weeks before she passed away. She was an awesome artist too. She drew a heart with thorns around for me and she said she could tell that I had my heart broken terribly bad (she was right too!). So after she died I had it tatooed on my arm, and when you look at it, it appears upside down, but when I look at it it is right side up. That kid touched me in a way I don't think anyone ever has. She had so much love to give, yet no one had ever loved her. I sure did, though.

    Yay!! The rhinogaming logo is a very neat piece of artwork. I think the guys and girls at Logo Design Team did that one.  If you want it to be less recognizable (or affiliated with a casino) you might try to run it as a mirror image. But seriously, SOB: If it does not bother you, then I wouldn't worry about it. It's not like someone who loves peacocks using the NBC logo or anything!!

    I have three. One on the top of my left foot, one on my left lower belly, and one across the side of my right hip. I'd love more. I'd be covered from elbow to neck to knee if not for the professionalism questions. The ones I have are all related to family, heritage and personality.

    Love it, thank you for sharing!!!


    The only difference between a person with tattoos, and a person without is this: The person with tattoos does not care if you do not have any.

    SOB- Great looking “Rhino” !!!! it looks awesome…….   I have one that I got back, 17 years ago when my wife was pregnant with my son, on my right bicep. I would love to get another, but I have the same problem as Princess, it doesn’t fit in the work world that I’m in. It's bad enough that I'm the only one that has goatee in the office of about 30 people.....SB

    My wedding ring is an Irish Claddaugh.  Well, in the 15 years I've been married, I've gained a few pounds.  The ring doesn't fit, so I had the Claddaugh tattooed to my left arm.

    here it is...

    Very cool!

    I am looking forward to getting my 1st tattoo sometime soon. My niece has been apprentecing with a tattoo artist for about year now and she has gotten really, really good. So the family has a standing offer of free tattoo work, only thing we have to pay for is the $20 sitting fee that covers supplies.

    But since I know my niece loves my cooking I told her if she would do the tattoo I would bring a smoked brisket into the shop for her, she was very exited about that... lol.

    Well like I said before I have several Tattoos so does my lovely bride her are my two favorite out of our collection.  I am a school teacher and she manages a salon you would never know we have tattoos unless you met us when we were living our personal lives. 

    The first one is on the back of my calf.  It is a full house Kings over queens just like our family.  Three boys and two girls.  along with our anniversary year in Roman Numerals.


    The Second is from my wife it is her till death due up part art.  I think i means she will kill me if i make her mad.


    I also have a sugar skull with my name a cross and several others I am thinking of a BBQ related tattoo as my next one.

    I love the rhino, would also like to see it when you get the tree done.

    SOB, I think you have spoke the truth about many of us. There's a bunch of us that sit back and keep quiet to a point, then look out.

    Well then Tom37 ...come join my crash!   That is what a group of Rhinos are called...A Crash of Rhino!    I like it!

    Well here is what I have done on the drawing today. Still workin on that darn tree...Mrs SOB gave me a good idea that she is gonna try in the am after she gets off work.

    She is an amazing woman and always has a way to help me when I get stuck! [​IMG]  Here ya go.
