The pocket watch, swallows and bell were all tattooed by Matt Huff (@matthufftattoo) at Brooklyn Ink (@originalbrooklynink) in Bay Ridge. Joseph told me the work is based on the flash of the legendary Dan Higgs.
Thanks to Joseph for sharing his ink with us here on Tattoosday!

I know, it’s been a long time since our last post. I’m still alive, still getting all sorts of submissions. Some day we’ll get through our backlog of awesome nerdy tattoos. But this one came in the other day and I just had to post it, you know since the new Star Trek movie, “Into Darkness” just came out.
The tattoo belongs to Jason Criss who writes:
It took me a while to figure out what kind of Star Trek tattoo I wanted to get. I finally decided that the enterprise d on my knuckles was the best choice for me. It’s still a work in progress there will be more shading and colors after the initial outline heals. let me know what you think of them so far.
That’s right, boldly going where no knuckle tattoo has gone before.
This belongs to Alaina.
This is my first tattoo. I actually waited until I was 30 to get it, and I am glad that I did. I love Slaughterhouse-Five, and use this quote as a constant reminder not to dwell on things that I cannot control. As a teacher, it has started more than one conversation with students that didn’t necessarily trust authority figures and wanted someone that could relate to them, however small a degree.
This was posted as a part of “So it Goes” Saturdays. The phrase “so it goes” appears in Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse-Five 106 times. Can you help me collect 106 “so it goes” tattoos? 95 down, 11 to go.
The following tattoo is dedicated to Vita’s parents, who used to take a specific tram to visit one another in different cities:
She added that the Maneki-neko cat below the tram was “just for fun.”
Vita also revealed this lovely tattoo on her ribs:
She explained that there was a big tattoo project being done to raise money for the World Wildlife Fund, with designs contributed by numerous artists. She said people would sign up and pick their favorite design and then winners were selected. All proceeds went to the WWF. This hand, with the word “SAVE” and a muskrat on the palm was inked by Andrey Kichaty (@kichatiy).

This lightning bolt is a nod to this iconic image:
If you ever find yourself in Hattiesburg, I recommend popping in to the tap room, which always has a healthy selection of locally-crafted beer.
Thanks to Liz and Southern Prohibition Brewing for sharing the tattoos and beer!
