AquaFamily Tattoo

This amazing tattoo--of the whole AquaFamily--is currently residing on the epidermis of Rev. OJ Flow (he of Newsarama)! The Rev. sent me this pic over the weekend, making him our newest member of F.O.A.M.!

Here's what OJ had to say about it:

"This has been a work in progress since February, but I had to wait until the work was done yesterday. This took 4 sessions (altogether probably 9-10 hours), the tattoo was done by Patrick Cornolo of Speakeasy Custom Tattoos here in Chicago.

I think you can pretty much sort out the lineup. The piece takes up my upper right leg, from just over the knee to the hip on the outer side."

...now that's dedication to the King of the Seven Seas! Rev OJ, welcome to F.O.A.M.!

Wow ... That is some serious Aquaman love there. Looks great, too!

That body art is true dedication.

Rob, have you heard of a band named Ookla the Mok? I've been following your Aquaman Shrine for a while, but don't recall seeing them mentioned amidst the other Aqua-love. If you haven't heard of them, here's a link to their MySpace page where you can hear some of their songs, including one titled Arthur Curry.

Sorry, Rob, the link got dropped the first time.

Ookla the Mok link, take 2:

I have heard of them, and I even arranged to do an interview with the songwriters; but it fell through so i never really got around to posting the song.

Now it just seems woefully late.

Now that's a TRUE Aquaman fan! However, the tattoo itself is a mixed bag. The composition is good with the whole Aqua-family but Aquaman's face looks like that of a young boy. Same with Mera. Also the body of Aquaman is very realistic with cool shading and highlights and the face is almost cartoony.

Diff'rent strokes for diff'rent folks, Luis. Sorry!

Thanks for the props, Rob!
