Maybe a little Rat Fink. There's no monster with his head through the roof and his warty, gnarly hand on the shifter...

It is a neat tattoo. Did you get it!? If you did, congratulation s are in order.  ;D

If you'll take a look at the third pic that bbobcat75 posted...you should see some resemblance lol. I had it redrawn without the guy sticking out of it and had the 79-80 style front end drawn in place. Unfortunately Ed Roth never did a RatFink Pinto. I'm kinda on the fence about getting a tattoo. 75bobcatv6 I have a guy in Prescott Valley, he's the one that redrew the car for me and my brothers daughter did a tat for the wife so I have it covered, thanks. If I get brave enough I'll let everyone know

Nothing to be scared of. Just like a bad sun burn for a few days. Just remember, if it didn't hurt everyone would have one. Also, they last forever.

Just have it done under your arm. That way you can show it off when you want too. It's alittle tender under there, but it will go numb after awhile.

Well I can tell you one thing. Once you get one, you need more! LOL They are as addicting as Pintos are! I now have 4. None are Pinto related, yet lol, but I'm thinking of doing the Pinto pony one day. I'm also really contemplating doing some VW bugs and busses chasing each other around me ankle. :D Sorry, VW has always been my first love. :D Pintos are just more addicting. :D

With all this talk of tattoos, I think I will go to the local tattoo shop and see what they can come up with! :D

Here are my current toos!



The front part of that one....


This one is sea serpents, but because I had to keep it small enough to fit under a watch do to no tattoos at work, they didn't come out exactly as planned! LOL I do like them though. I love the permanent bracelet! :D  Now work allows tattoos so no more watch! :D



This was my first tat. It is the same color as my hubby's old HD.

 

It is on my shoulder. It say's Bobby's Girl.  That lead up to my second tattoo which is the bug with VW Bob's on the front. Reason for that was a friend of ours, also named Bob, kept saying I was his. I took care of that with that tattoo! LOL I was young, what can I say! :D

Needless to say. I love tattoos. Yah, I don't have a lot and I will never have to many. I will always place them to where I can hide them if I need to. The sad part of this addiction is they are not cheap. That is the main reason I don't have more. Although, like I say, I think I will go see about a new one for my other ankle. :D

I think your idea for a tat is really cool looking.  If you decide to go for it, make sure you show us a pic!! :D  OH, and yah, you need to make sure it is what you really want. As you said, you know they are permanent. I don't regret any of my tats. Love them all! :D

Yah, I was thinking of doing a bug, a split window and a Westy. LOL All of which I own. :D  Just need to get my vision on paper and then going around in a circle. May have to throw a VW emblem in the mix to fill in any gap if need be. :D

You are so correct on them being addictive. I had my first one done when I was 40 when my Dad died. Big ole bulldog. It and all the other ones give me a completed half sleeve on the right, totally hidden when I want them to be. Left arm is almost half as well, it's for my Mother
( Flying Hog )who just passed this last Thanksgiving. All of mine are special to me and that's all that matters. I have more but it would take to much typing to talk about. Get it, just make sure its what you want.

Also the X can't take them away!!  ;D

i have two. the latest covers the 1st one. The 1st one was done at the Pike in Long Beach in 1969 IIRC.
 
It is my (then) girlfriends name.
 
The 2nd one was done by the same guy at the same shop in the same chair at the Pike in 1974 because the wonderful lady to whom I was getting married (i am still married to her) was a 'bit' uncomfortable with an old flames name on my arm.
 
The 2nd one is a black rose that was placed over the previous one.
 
#2 has since faded a lot.  I want to get it recolored & perhaps modified a bit.
 
#1 was $30 and #2 was $40.  I don't regret either one.
 
Oh yeah; it hurt like hell!
the only substitute for cubic inches is BOOST!!!

Ok Thank you Kimmy! You are so right that they are addictive! I have 5 so far, money being the reason I don't have more. Mine are not Pinto-related but my plans are to get a couple Pinto ones. I'd almost get the script emblem complete with tail and kicking filly on the small of my back but a) I wouldn't be able to see and ogle it, and b) some people call those Tramp Stamps. It would REALLY seal my fate with Tramp Stamp if I had Runabout tattooed somewhere... lol  I also want JUST the filly on my left arm or left ankle. Then maybe I'd be done... ::)

Note: These were done of the same guy by the same guy (the two aren't related). Look at all five, and guess who it is (no hints Kimmy!) lol

The most painful one was the cartoon one with the black jacket. It didn't help that one of my cats scratched the still-healing jacket part and it got infected. Except for the faded brown hair, it looks great 7 years later.  ;D

It only hurts when the needle's etching you... ::)
