The Gift of Arms

I was walking out of the grocery store today with bags of food in my two arms and remembered how much we do with our arms and hands. I am so very grateful to have two working arms and hands.

Speaking of arms, below are the finished pictures of the dragon sleeve tattoo wrapped around the three jewels in Chinese characters. And below them are the updated Buddha tattoo pictures:

The Buddha tattoo shots below. It's about half way done.

Looking good! I especially like the butsu-ho-so (Buddha-Dharma-Sangha). Very, very cool.

Thanks, yeah the butsu-ho-so is the center of the piece.


In Chinese it says: Buddha, Dharma, Sangha. :)


My tattoo artist drew it up on my arm. He's pretty good.


Thanks!! I love to honor my body in putting beautiful art on it.


Oh man I'm excited for ya!! I love getting ink done. Especially stuff that means a lot.
