The Illustrated Man, Part 16: sXe
For my 16th tattoo, I wanted another straight edge piece. My artist, Shaun, who I had just become friends with at the time, is also straight edge, knew exactly what kind of piece I was looking for. He drew up this custom sXe design for me, and we decided it would look good on the left side of my neck. In the process of doing the piece, Shaun thought it would look cool if we added some grey flames to it, so I let him pretty much do whatever he wanted. I'm actually glad he suggested the flames, as I like the way they turned out, especially how the one kind of goes up the side of my neck. Tattoo courtesy of Shaun Reed Tattoos in Olympia, WA.
