Alright, these are all taken haphazardly from the camera on my Treo, but hey it's something to look at I guess.

So here's a picture of my favorite bass (It's a late 90's Carvin LB70 that I had made through their mail order "custom shop" process)...along with some of my arm lol:

Here's my POS Ibanez that I recently converted to fretless, and also a halfass shot of the defret job (oh yeah, you can also see where I drilled holes through the body and BOLTED the freakin strap to it because I was always ripping the freakin strap screws clean out...crappy wood):

And just for fun, here's my early 80s Squire Strat that I have absolutely abused the holy hell out of over the years:

That's a well tattooed arm Baaloo! Nice Carvin, I've always dug how Carvin works. What's the body wood on your bass?

"well tattooed" as in "nice work" or "a lot of tattoos?" lol

I'm 90% sure that the body on the carvin is maple, but it's been 11 years since I had it made and I was on the fence between maple and ash at the time... add to that the fact that I have a hard time telling the difference between those two anyway and whalah! :D

As in a lot of tattoos. The pic's a bit too blurry for me to tell the quality/subject of the work.
I have a 3/4 sleeve on my left arm.

Actually, the angle is deceptive. My arms are only about 1/3 of the way done.

Just both forearms to the elbow, or less? You're right to your wrist though, aren't you?

forearms aren't even completed... music gear, rum, and a 73 charger have gotten in the way of tattoo progress.
