Tattoo by Jason Lambert, Black Cat Tattoos in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
“I also did a fly reel on a great regular customer who already is wearing two Japanese sleeves I did on him and wanted to express his other passion, namely fly fishing.

But their shared love of fly fishing is something he wanted to do without it looking too much like a memorial piece. It’s on the side of his calf.”
