I'm Getting A New One

Now that I'm back, I just want to say that I'll be off all day manana. Tomorrow at noon, I will be at under my buddy's gun, recieving a new tat to start my right sleeve. It will be an egyptian winged scarab beetle placed on my right forearm.... it's gonna be sick, it will be glorious... dare I say... it will be BIT(HIN!

In ancient egypt, it was noticed how the scarab beetle pushed a ball of dung across the earth and was related to the movement of the sun. The god Kephera, which was a scarab beetle, was believed to push the sun across the sky. Also, a beetle woul...d push the ball of dung to it's home, where the female would lay her eggs inside. The eggs would hatch, the larvea would slowly eat their way out and all anybody ever saw of this was a hole in the ground and bunch of beetles almost miraculously crawling from it. For this reason they were also associated with the Creation god Atum.

.... once again... bit(hin...

Well, there you go!

Thankyou Gnusmas! :) But one thing... why don't you have any ink??? You need to jump on that!!!

I like tattoos but I do not have any. Nice job I like it a lot
