New work by Johnny Opina of Lowrider Tattoo.
Before Kirk Wallace’s father passed away from cancer and heart issues on January 11th, he mentioned to Kirk that when he got better he wanted to get a tattoo of crop circles on his arm. Kirk responded something along the lines of, â€˜Well if you donâ€™t, Iâ€™ll take care of it, donâ€™t worry.â€™ – and so he did!
Hit the jump to see photos of Kirk’s process for designing the tattoo to honor his Dad.
President Obama told “Today Show” anchor Savannah Guthrie that he and the first lady have a strategy to discourage their daughters from ever getting tattoos.
“If you guys ever decided youâ€™re going to get a tattoo, then mommy and me will get the exact same tattoo, in the same place. And weâ€™ll go on YouTube and show it off as a family tattoo. And our thinking is that might dissuade them from thinking that somehow thatâ€™s a good way to rebel,” the President said.
We think Sasha and Malia should call the President’s bluff. ;]
