I decided to celebrate Wonder Woman's new costume, which debuted a couple of weeks ago, by getting my third tattoo, of Wonder Woman, in her glorious "old school" costume.
This amazing tattoo is from the Darwyn Cooke illo on the spine of the Absolute New Frontier. As with the Promethea tatto and Big Barda tattoo I have, this Wonder Woman tattoo is by the amazing Dirk Vermin of Pussykat Tattoo (he and his shop won best tat shop a couple of weeks ago in the Las Vegas Weekly and there's something like 200 tattoo shops in town!). Dirk tweaked her arms and golden lasso a bit to fit on my leg and he added the boots (I wanted her 1970's boots), which wasn't in Cooke's original drawing.
My Wonder Woman tattoo only took Dirk two hours, of which I'm glad because I thought it would take at least three and a half hours. It hurt like someone was drilling fat needles into my leg (grin!), and was especially painful on the parts of my leg which don't have much skin before hitting the bone. But "no pain, no gain" and I couldn't be happier with the finished results! Now for the next weekish / ten days I get to have a swollen leg and get nervous about the scabbing healing process.
And Wonder Woman's new costume is kinda lame, but like new Coke / old Coke DC needs to mix things up from time to time, this shall pass and her comic will match my leg in about a year or so (and how cool would it be if Darwyn Cooke drew some issues when that costuem returns!?)! I'm going to have to get a future tattoo that says my legs are "property of DC Comics"!

I don't know what would bore me more; watching a game of football or a game of baseball, but I've liked movies about baseball ( Fie...
