My friend Matt moved to Baltimore a couple years ago and shared this tattoo with me after he got it last summer:
This piece recalls the stack of signs that was often seen in episodes of the TV series M*A*S*H.
Matt wanted to pay homage to the show - not only was it a staple for a lot of us growing up, but it was one of those shows that aired in reruns constantly, back before streaming and binge-watching television was a thing. Without going into too much detail, Matt was laid up for a spell in the early 2000s M*A*S*H helped him through a difficult time - it was "all I ever watched on TV" then, he told me.
He credited the artist Rudy, from Skull N Bones Tattoo, in Toledo, Ohio, with the work. He loves what he did with shading. The Boston sign from the original has been removed and replaced with Matt's new home, Baltimore.
Thanks to Matt for sharing this cool tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!
