Joe's Sinatra and Monroe Tattoos Honor His Grandfather

Last week at the New York City Tattoo Convention, I ran into Joe at the Leathernecks Tattoo booth up on the balcony at Roseland Ballroom.

He shared these tattoos which are eventually going to be part of a larger sleeve:

I wasn't able to track down the original image for the Marilyn Monroe cover, but I did find the Frank Sinatra one:

Joe credited the artist Kenny Restrepo for this tattoo and elaborated on what he is working on:
"My grandpa was a decently-famous singer in the 50's, so he was in a few  magazines. I still have them, so I'm gonna have my grandfather in the pictures that he was in  ... I'm going to put them on my upper arm ... I'm going to do this whole side of my arm for him."
Thanks to Joe for sharing these cool tattoos with us on Tattoosday!
