Yesterday, my DVR finally managed to catch an episode of "Tattooed in Detroit," on Animal Planet.
Marisa over at Needles and Sins talked about the show here.
In a bit of a coincidence, shortly after watching the hour-long episode, which featured several memorial tattoos for owners' pets, I learned, via Facebook, that my nephew Ikaika, was getting more ink on Saturday.
Back in April 2010, I was back home in Hawai'i and I got a chance to take pictures of his tattoos, along with my other nieces and nephews. His post originally appeared on Tattoosday here, and since all the planets seemed to align (maybe it was the lunar eclipse), I thought I'd share his new tattoo with Tattoosday.
This is a portrait of Ikaika's pit bull Tama, who lived with him for 12 years.
The tattoo was done by James Cacal at Tattoo Krew Empire in Waipahu, Hawai'i.
A big mahalo to my nephew for sharing Tama's portrait with us here on Tattoosday!
