A real tattoo story....
It was my Dad's 60th Birthday recently and as some of you may know he collects ducks (He has like a million of them all different from tiny pencil topper ducks to stone statue ducks in the garden) He is also a big fan of the Beano and so me+my bro commissioned a fantastic duck painting by Gary "Derek the Sheep" Northfield as a special present (I can't put a pic up of it because it's on my Dad's wall pride of place amongst the other ducks) Now, a couple of weeks had passed and I noticed my Dad had thrown away the card I made him but non of his other cards (sob!) I presumed the cat must have destroyed it or something.......But I found out a few days later that my Dad had just taken the inside of the card -where I'd drawn a duck- to the tattoo place and got a real tattoo of the drawing! Here is a photo of it-
The photo at the top shows me and my Dad around 1985 eating fish and chips. Happy 60th Birthday Dad! :o)
