Today I tattooed Foghorn Leghorn and Porky Pig from the Loony Tunes cartoons. I always have fun doing cartoon characters, but it's even better when they come with a story. I had known for a while that a tattoo of a rooster and a pig are popular traditional tattoos, but I didn't know exactly why. The girl I tattooed today, who is going into the Navy, explained that it was traditional for sailors to get these tattoos because if a ship was going down it was always pigs and roosters who survived. So a tattoo of a pig and a rooster is supposed to provide protection from drowning for sailors.

I guess this is what comes out of my head when I don't have anything else to do. I finished my actual work early in the day and spent the rest of my work day on this nice fancy armadillo. So, enjoy!
