farm to table...... ink?

I am, like many in the industry am heavily into tattoos.  In fact I am fairly, heavily tattooed.  There's something about the adrenaline rush.  It's a good hurt.  My tats represent me and are all extremely meaningful to me.  So obviously some have to do with food.

Above is one of many farm paintings by artist Walt Curlee.  Yes, this painting is being adapted to fit my entire right arm.  In fact, the outline is done and today I just got the first shading and color.  The sky to be exact.  It looks awesome.  Those guys at Addictions know there shit!

No, I did not grow up on a farm, but the term farm to table is near and dear to me.  To be able to cook with the freshest, best variety of product while enabling a sustainable, local friendly environment, amazing!  Sure it makes you look good, bonus!  But what it really does is make me feel good.  It moves me to be able to talk to the person, a friendly face, that just brought me a pig from their farm.  Which I know was humanely and respectfully treated.  Thats the kind of world(business) I want to be a part of.

So I pay homage with this tat for something that makes me feel good.  And to me something that gives me that power is rare and deserves all the respect and love and appreciation that I can give back.  And it looks pretty badass too.

FYI it should be fully complete by the end of the year, and I should definitely have a working camera by then.  In case all the many followers are dying to get a look.
