Yup, it’s spring which means baseball season is here. I can’t say I’m a big sports fan but my husband more than makes up for my lack of enthusiasm. I AM a big fan of Field of Dreams which comes to mind when I see the tattoo work that this baseball fan has collected.
Mike McWain decided to pay homage to the history of baseball with his body. He combined the images of some of the baseball greats of yesteryear along with images of his children. His artwork includes portraits of Ty Cobb, Babe Ruth, and Shoeless Joe Jackson.
The artwork is done all in black and gray by one super talented artist by the name of Jesse Walsh. Walsh says the publicity that McWain has been getting with his upper body work has resulted in welcomed attention to his artwork.
Visit this site to see a video where McWain explains all of his baseball images. He put a lot of thought and planning in the design and it’s well laid out.
My favorite part is the baseball stitching which was used to frame some of the artwork.
