Well, I finished The right half sleeve and the full back piece. The right half sleeve commemorates my career as a Naval Officer. You can't see it all but it has ribbons on the edges which name a number of the countries/theaters of operation I served in.
We just finished my full back piece. The theme of the piece is "Fair Winds and Following Seas" in reference to an old Naval blessing one gives to a departing shipmate.
The airplane at the top I built and fly; her name is "Fairwinds".
The Boat on the lower right is my boat; her name is "Following Seas".
The Tall Ship on the lower left is a ship that I crewed on; the "HMS Rose" which was used to film the Russel Crowe film; "Master and Commander",
The Sak Yant tattoo in the lower center was given to me by some of my fellow in Northern Thailand when I gave up my Robes and left the monastery.
I just started my left sleeve but the site won't let me post more than 4 images.
