I met Michael back in August out on Penn Plaza and he shared this tattoo, on the upper left side of his chest:
That is, for those who don't know, the comic strip character Calvin, from Bill Watterson's Calvin and Hobbes.
Michael is an illustrator and visual artist. He explains this tattoo:
"I’m a Calvin and Hobbes fanatic since I was a kid. I own every single strip. I actually have two of those omnibus hardcover [volumes] and I had gone on a road trip with my father and my 21-year old cousin. 17 states in three weeks. I‘ve always wanted a Calvin tattoo."
The piece was inked by his friend Kyle Sajban at Red Rocket Tattoo in New York City.
We've featured a lot of work from Red Rocket here on this site, but I believe this is the first tattoo attributed to Kyle.
Thanks to Michael for sharing his cool tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!
