Mark & I got Kapten Hannafied...

One of the things that we did while in Portland Maine was to visit the Squid & Whale headoffice of awesomeness and get inked by the equally awesome Kapten Hanna. My beautiful Deco lady took two days but was definitely worth it... she is such a pretty lady!

Here she is finished and all healed...

And here is an image of the line work. There was alot of line work to be completed! Hanna did a great job at the many straight lines and tiny pearl beads.

Mark got a sextant on his arm... if you don't know what a sextant is, it's a ye old nautical measuring device. Very mathy ... very Mark! They are quite beautiful.

A big shout out to the fabulous Kapten Hanna and Cindy Lou who made our three days in the studio so much fun. I had to try and stop laughing so much so Hanna wouldn't mess up any lines! Our discussions on music and film were very indepth... as was Cindy Lou's appreciation of made up songs! Can't wait to catch up with you guys again!

you don't know me, but i just found your pics while searching 'sextant tattoo' - and had to say I love mark's ink! i have a compass and a big/little dipper combo on my back so someone naturally suggested my next navigational tool should be a sextant - fun to find someone that already has one. thanks for the inspiration!

Thanks for your comment! It's a pretty lovely tattoo and Mark always wanted a sextant as his grandfather was involved in exploration to Antartica. We haven't seen many tattooed either.
Cheers, Mardi
