In late November of 2007, I found out that a guy I knew, @dirtypirate, was participating in this thing called whiskerino. I was amazed that such a thing existed. I knew immediately that I wanted to participate. Trouble was I had to wait 2 years.

So i stewed. I looked around. I found @hale's art in the '07 bazaar. Ohhhhhh yessssss!!! This was perfect. Then I found that Ozzy had it tattooed. At the time, I didn't think I'd have the guts to get something like this tattooed. Then I saw that @rolfbastard had it as well. When I was at the throwdown, I was standing next to @rolfbastard and @ozzynelson when they took their photo that rolf posted yesterday. I knew then what I wanted to do.

It was my turn.

Ladies and Gentlemen… Ryan Hale's 2007 whiskerino skull print.

Here are the photos from the tattoo session:

Ink by Allen Paulson. Art by @hale, of course.

Also, @hale says there are still more prints. You can by them here in the '07 bazaar: http://whiskerino.org/2007/bazaar/

His name is Allen Paulson.
His name is Allen Paulson.

In life we have no name but in whiskerino we have monikers. And tattoo artists who do things like this can be called anything they want.

Great stuff.

Whoa!!
Should I remove the @hale print in my office and replace it with a photo of your tattoo?

I'm not a jealous dude, but I can't help it right now. This is totally awesome dude. I had spoken to ozzy about getting one of these while in nashville, but as you know I wasn't able to make it to Nashville. I wouldn't be a faux pas to get one on my own would it? Is your guy in Dallas or did you get this in Nashville?

I actually bought the original of this from Hale last time around, with the intention of getting it inked, but I waited so long, and now 3 others have done it. The question now is; Is it too late or perfect timing?

PS: awesome!
