[LEFT]As with anything regarding the art world, your choice of picture, painting, colors, etc. are a personal preference. I would suggest looking at parlors in your area and if available to custom work done by the artists there. Choose an artist you like and discuss any and all ideas you have for what would make a real stand out welding tatoo, picture, painting, it's all art and you in this case have a real choice in the subject matter. There's allot of pictures in Microsoft Office when you insert on a document, you migt look there for some ideas. I've never seen a welder tatto, welder's tatoo so it's in my opionion going to be you and the artist putting together something one of a kind and personal. Just a suggestion. Good luck, and hope you'll paste in on the board when you get it done.

I have an idea. How about a tattoo of your skin split and it welded with metal? I think that would be neat looking. Just a thought...They don't call me Lucky for nothin'.

I also am a welding instructor PT so I was thinking of something to do with a tig torch creating an arc on a bright red apple.

If you want a really neat looking spider web design on your hand just let a 4 1/2" grinder with a wire cup brush get loose from ya, it's not as permanent as a real tattoo though, it will start to fade away after about five years or so.

I've watched this tread since the beginning, and seen some very interesting 'takes' on the subject.
From my own experience-
I've been around tattoed folks alot, and don't think they are any big deal.
In the Service, lots of folks have, & get more of them, and I've been to countrys with some of the best tattoo artists on the planet-- that worked almost for free.
But, I never got one.
Something that keeps rolling around in my head is a comment I heard a long, long time ago from a guy who'd worked at the maximum security, state mental institution, for the criminaly insane.
---------The patients in there, weren't never gonna get out and go home.
He made the observation once,
"No,,,,,,,,, you don't have to be crazy to get a tattoo,,,,,,,
However,,,,,,,,,,,, ALL!!! the crazy people have them".
