Reposting from 2014..... in honor of all the brave men and women who have died in service to our country.
On this Memorial Day, we're appreciating this back piece on Joe, who I met at the NYC Tattoo Convention back in March.
When he shared this with me back at Roseland, I knew I'd be saving it for Memorial Day, especially after Joe explained, "One of my grandparents was in the Air Force, the other one was in the Navy, so I did the World War II scene with airplanes ... and navy boats - I have battleship and I have an aircraft carrier."
This impressive piece took a little over forty hours and was inked by Kenny Restrepo at Leathernecks Tattoo in Brooklyn.
Thanks to Joe for sharing his back piece with us here on Tattoosday, and for helping us honor and thank all the men and women who have sacrificed their lives in service to our country!
