phoenix tattoo & full sleeve tattoos-flaming phoenix back piece tattoos, elbow spider webs, wind bars, mako shark in water, nautical stars and flames

The phoenix tattoo, chest plates and full sleeves tattoos take top honor!!

I entered my first tattoo show at Sauk Prairie Harley Davidson. The show was sponsored by my Smooth Fx and without bias, I'm honored to say I won first place for men's large extensive color! A befitting honor for my good friend and amazing tattoo artist.

One Tough Pirate's full sleeves tattoos...Got ink?!

 

 

Tattoos-word history:



Although the practice of tattooing the body is very old, the English word tattoo is relatively new. The explorer Captain James Cook (who also gave us the word taboo) introduced the word to English speakers in his account of a voyage around the world from 1768 to 1771. Like taboo, tattoo comes from Polynesian languages such as Tahitian and Samoan. The earliest use of the verb tattoo in English is found in an entry for 1769 in Cook's diary. Sailors introduced the custom into Europe from the Pacific societies in which it was practiced, and it has remained associated with sailors, although many landlubbers now get tattoos as well.

Hot rod flames on both sleeves represent the fire within me, that burning desire to live!

Spider web tattoos on my elbows represent my time served living with AIDS. A life sentence indeed, but not a death sentence!

Phoenix tattoo back piece with flames was to mark my 24th year of kicking HIV ass. Rising up from the ashes to face the challenges before me!

*****************
 

I had always been warned that the stomach was a sensitive area to be tattooed. Hearing stories of "grown men crying, not finishing their letters, etc." was a bit intimidating but a challenge I welcomed! Considering I'm fully sleeved, to my armpits no less, and the majority of my back and chest are covered in ink, I truly didn't think that I would actually experience pain in the true sense of the word. It was indeed a tough sit to say the very least! However, considering the red ribbon tattoo and "Never Forget" are to mark a QUARTER CENTURY of my living with HIV/AIDS, and to honor my many friends, and all that have passed from this disease, it was worth every ounce of pain and discomfort! Smooth did an incredible job per usual in helping to design and bring the tattoo to life! I have to thank Sean and Danielle for their input and moral support! The comic relief was greatly appreciated too! The red ribbon tattoo on my stomach will serve as my reminder to fight on in honor of many and to
NEVER EVER FORGET!

Pirate,

You are a big inspiration to me and when I think of my life I pray that I can make a difference as you have in this world. Somebody ask me a few days ago if I could met anyone in the world who would it be and I said Bob Bowers. The girl ask who you was and I said you was my inspiration and hero.

Sending my love to you always,

To honor my 24th year of LIVING with HIV/AIDS, I added  the "Carpe Diem" tattoo on my traps. 2007 was a remarkable year to say the very least! My speaking took me from Key West, Florida to Oregon. Our HIV/AIDS poster awareness campaign was launched and featured in POZ magazine, we launched our OTP and HIVictorious clothing, my tattoo sleeves were completed, just to name a few of the highlights of the year.  Seize the day pretty well describes the theme of 2007!  Thank you to my friends, family, Smooth Fx, colleagues, and everyone who has so graciously supported our non-profit, HIVictorious, Inc.
FIGHT ON & NEVER F#CKING SURRENDER!!!

THE SLEEVES IN PROGRESS!

After 17 years of collecting tats that represent 'mile markers' for my survival, some that represent my personality, and a few ' just for the hell of it,' the tie in to my sleeve work continues moving forward with great precision and expertise from Smooth of Smooth Fx Tattoos in Sauk City, Wisconsin.  I'm grateful to everyone who has graced my body with their artistry! I have been tattooed in Wisconsin, Los Angeles, Portland Oregon, Atlantic City, New Jersey, Sturgis, South Dakota and San Diego, California. Stay tuned for more...I think I'm hooked. CARPE F#CKING DIEM!!!

 

 

October 11, 2007
I'm thrilled t' say that da left sleeve is COMPLETE!!! After a 5 hour sit with the MASTER of ink, I have a full sleeve of amazing and vibrant ink! We added a few more leaves on the Red Rose and the green is awesome against the black wind bars. To my surprise, it was painless as the needles filled in next to my armpit! I think that also speaks mounds to the smooth precision and steady hand of Smooth. My Guardian Wench on my right arm also got a kick ass makeover.
She is now anatomically enhanced in a vibrant purple!

June 8, 2007

Another 4 hour sit and Smooth finished the color on the flame and nautical star (left upper arm) that was his original design. He also colored some older flames and my 'heart on my sleeve' that I've had for some years. He added some new black tribal to my right arm as well.

April 12, 2007

Back in da chair again! 5 more hours of ink was acquired recently. Per usual, I let Smooth know my vision and his skill and artistry translated into a wicked left upper arm tie-in for da sleeve. With great skill and flawless precision, Smooth added black wind bars, a new flame and nautical star. Stay tuned as it will be continued soon!

February 17, 2007
After a whoppin' 8 hour sit, the right sleeve is nearly complete! We added water and blue wind bars/water around the Mako Shark tattoo and upper arm. Per usual, Smooth has done an amazing job of bringing the pieces together into an awesome sleeve. We still have more water to add and some coloring on a few original pieces. Stay tuned...

THE PHOENIX SOARS!

In celebration of my 23rd year of living with HIV/AIDS and my 43rd birthday, I have gotten my Phoenix tattoo at last! Smooth Fx consulted with me and custom designed this most remarkable back piece. It covers the majority of my back has taken multiple sittings. Thus far, I have 20 hours into it and counting... For me, the Phoenix symbolizes life, rising up to fight and my will to survive. It is a strong and poignant tribute to honor all those who have blessed my journey and continue to watch over me from above. Thank you to Rebecca Venn for instilling in me such a remarkable life lesson! Thank you to my friends who also contributed to making this piece possible, I am eternally grateful. Thank you to "Smooth" for bringing this vision to life in grand fashion!

FIGHT ON and NEVER EVER SURRENDER!!!

  The Phoenix

You have, like the phoenix, risen from the ashes through your own determination and will. Remember that what has risen from the ashes is not a toad or mole, or skunk or weak lil' worm but a beautiful strong soaring phoenix that has spread his wings over and around us. So soar on, my friend, and enjoy the the wind in your face and the warmth of your friends and the beauty of your accomplishments.

Hugs forever,
Rebecca Venn
 
I am honored to be a friend. I came across your site today and was so inspired by you. You have a positive attitude so many can learn from. When you ended your message to me today with Carpe diem it was enlightening because my status today was: "Carpe diem quam minimum credula postero!" Seize the day and place no trust in tomorrow. My take on this latin saying is "Live for today, for you never know what tomorrow may bring!"
