The Day Finally Arrived
I have been waiting to get this tattoo done for so long now. I love tattoos full stop and more so it seems the older I get. Next year I will be 50 and I can’t believe it; I’m actually in shock because my life has truly gone so bloody fast. I got to thinking I needed to do something to celebrate this event then it dawned on me that I bought my very first album in 1979 when I was 10 and 40 years on this album is still my number one album. So a double celebration.
Brand New Gary Numan Tattoo
I loved the images on the cover of this album and decided that I needed to have a brand new Gary Numan tattoo to celebrate the last 40 years and my 50th and the fact that I still love this album as much now as I did the first time I heard it.
The album was called “Replicas”. The first time I heard it I was just taken in with it so completely. It was so different and it just resonated deep within me and never left. His music, his stage presence, the character he portrayed, his imagination and his talent has paved the way for many many artists. Not stopping there he is still doing what he does best and just continually evolving.
The image I had tattooed yesterday was the image on the back of the cover.
And here is the finished piece but please remember it was only done yesterday and will look even better when it has healed.
The next tattoo is going to be the front cover of the album and that will be going in the same place but on my other arm. Just want to say, Guy Fletcher, at North Start Tattoos you are a legend.
I’ve got a really busy day tomorrow as my mum is popping up for a visit to celebrate my daughters birthday. So you know what this means; more cake!
Have a great weekend everyone.
