I think I drew that when I was about 18 or 19 years old

Thank you.... It wasn't originally ment to be patriotic, but it kind of turned out that way..... I got it done when my best friend of about 8/9 years left for the USMC

heh, because of him this was made??
hmm, but besides major subject of this tattoo, flag is really good, realistic I mean. how much time take that piece of art? (on paper and on skin)
Phillyink's avatar
On paper........ about 60 hrs (I'm a perfectionist)

Under the needle.......... 4 1/2 hrs. but It was worth it

heh, lot of time;)
I'm perfectionist by working with needle - that often my tattoos takes much more time than really needs.. :P 4 1/2 h is normal time, but 60 h?? jeeeez men, it has to be on you! ;D
