As regular readers may recall, I made a bet with Hive Overmind Discover Magazine CEO Henry Donahue that if we hit a target number of page views to both the BA Blog and the DM site, we'd both get tattoos. I can't reveal mine just yet, but here is a picture of Henry's: it's a Celtic salmon, and I must say it's quite nice. I particularly like the waves over the fish. The reason I can't reveal mine is that I had it done as part of the TV show L.A. Ink, and I can't post pictures or talk about the design until after the show airs. But don't worry, I'll post the whole painful (literally) story right here once I can. Congrats to Henry for such a handsome ink job! I can't wait until we meet up again, and we can compare tats in person. That'll be a fun pic for the blog.
