Shark Tattoo a Conversation Starter

Shark TattooWomen have been doing this for years.  After various types of breast surgery, women have found turned to their tattoo artist.  Tattoo artists are even hired by surgeons to treat patient’s right in their office.  After breast surgery – this includes augmentation, reduction, and reconstruction – tattoo artists can help enhance the area by tattooing realistic areola to the area.  After surgery this area can become scarred, becomes distorted, and in some cases  disappears.

Here we have an individual that is taking this to another level.  This is one of the first amputee enhanced pieces of body art I’ve ever seen but I doubt if it’s that isolated an example.  I like the idea for other reasons.  It’s a great tattoo utilizing the shape of the body which is one of the reasons it’s a great tattoo.  This area of the body is a perfect complement to the piece.  The other thought that struck me was what a conversation starter.  It takes away any awkwardness.  If I saw this man sitting next to me on the beach, I’d have to make small talk and pay him some compliments on his ink.  Instead of trying to “not look” at this man’s arm,  this tattoo say it’s OK with him.  He has no hang ups and neither should you.  It would really be a trip if he lost his arm to a shark.

From the illustration, the person is not in “down mood” while losing his hand, the tattoo designs cheer up his new life!!
