The Seahawk tattoo. (Post yours here.)
Wed May 21, 2014 4:18 pm
  • I have seen various tattoo treads on this site in the past few years. Lets get this as a sticky for tattoo art. Post your picture of Hawks tattoo art here.

    Ok so last year about the second or 3rd game I was in the bar and chatting with the Bartender. She is a huge Hawks fan and wore my Jerseys down to 2 Hawks games.

    Anyways we agreed that if the Hawks won the SB we were both going to get Seahawks Tattoo's. So I am now embarking on having a large tat put on my left arm. (She has since moved and is not getting a tat lol)

    Through this thread I am going to post pictures of the progress. This tat will take 2 or 3 three hour sittings. Today I had the consult and I gave all the pictures etc. for the artist to make the creation. Next wed I have the first 3 hour sitting.

    So here is what I am getting. Taking up most of the arm I am having a Seahawk descending on it's prey with wings up and claws out. In the claws there will be a 12th man flag blowing in the wind. Below the flag there will be a banner with the roman numerals 48. It is set so that each SB win can have another banner below the first with the next number.

    I am 62 so I hope to have enough arm for all the SB banners. Hope I don't run out of room before I die, well on second thought maybe I do. (lots of SB's)

    So to start, here is the picture of the idea of the Hawk, wont be exactly like this picture but you get the idea and one of the blank canvas. I hope to add a picture next wed or Thursday with the first stage of the tat.

  • Ok here we go. So story is I was in today and had the entire tattoo done in one sitting. This guy is really good. The tattoo was done by Dillon. He is the owner of Government Street tattoo in Victoria BC. Pictures coming in next post.

  • 38 years I waited to do this. Some woman said to me before the sitting, "Don't do that, on no, think how old you are" LOL PS: 63rd year.

    If you note I have left room for more banners for 49, 50, 51 etc.

    GO HAWKS!!!!

    After cleaning etc we got started about 3:30 with some minor breaks we were finished at 6:45 so I was billed for 3 hours work.

    PS I know tattoo's and I know allot of people who have them, and they and I all say, that he did a lot of really good work in a really short time.

    Oh well I own a bridge club here in Victoria. She is one of the bridge players here at my club. She is a "friend" from the club and when she heard I was getting the ink done that afternoon she went squirrely. Some people who are in there 60s figure that they are old and need to act it. I don't, I still drink hard, ride hard, and think I am in my 20's, and I LOVE me some Seahawks.

  • BTW the art is way more dynamic, deep and colorful in real life. The pictures do not do justice to the wolf grey's and the shimmering effect and the shading he created.

  • I think tattoos relating to favorite sports teams are almost always corny as all hell.. but yours looks really nice rainger. Props.

    Thanks Hasselbeck. I am really happy with it. I had an idea and the artist was able to build on the idea. I went into it a little worried that it wasn't going to work out right but in the end it is perfect.

    I am just hoping to put more banners under the 48 one.

    Get tattoos when you're young and don't worry about what your already decaying skin will look like when you're old. Get tattoos when you're old because who cares if your old skin has new art on it that will look better than the skin around it in 20 years. Basically, get tattoos for yourself and when you want them. If it makes you feel younger, then all the better. Be the coolest guy at the retirement home in 20 years.

    I agree, and even this one does to an extent, but it's still a good looking tattoo. I did a "sneaky" one with no text or anything to give it away, but everyone that knows me knows what it is. No names on me except dead relatives, that's my code. saved me from a Black Flag tattoo

    That inside the elbow feels good huh? About the only time I've really been HOLY S%^& is the soft skin inside elbow area. Yikes.

    It is funny the 12th man flag was the most painful. There were parts in the inside that you feel the hurt, but the full on fill of the color on the flag and banner was near the end and I was a bit raw by then. Finally at the end he added the red in between the wings and I was ready for it to be over. LOL.

    Gotta admit shoulders are nothing I have both done and my right arm has a large dragon that wraps around to the underside, there was some hurt there but the inside of the forearm is way more tender.

  • Come on. I know there are many many more Hawk tattoos on the users of this site. I have seen them periodically before in various treads.

    Show us your stuff. Post your picture. Lets get all the tattoos into 1 thread for convenience.

  • OK I booked my appointment for Feb 16th 2015 to add another banner to the tattoo with an XLIX.

    Premature maybe. Confident, I hope so. Jinxing the team, naw in the past yes, but not this team.

  • I've put it on other threads, but here is mine. It was a xmas present from my wife in 2011. I guess someone at .com like it, because it was used for their Seahawk tattoo feature a couple of years ago, which was pretty cool.

  • I think Blue Talon has the sickest Seahawks tats, I've seen a few others and they're all killer, ...

    BT has the epic canvas, awesome!

    I remember when I first saw it, I thought it said "Boston" in between the logos on his back piece. The lighting was bad on the pic I looked at so it was kind of a set up, IMO. lol

    Anyway, love seeing my fellow devoted 12's getting branded as such ...
