Show Us Your Ink!

This is Chad's Tattoo

Yesterday was a weird day for me on the blog.  I got this idea that there is a lot of talk about the different beer tattoos that people have nowadays and I thought I would throw up some examples of the good and the not so good ink I found out there on the internet.  Well I got into a bit of a conversation with Chad McNeal, a fellow beer blogger from Lima, Ohio.  Chad is a fan of the ink.  This is a picture of Chad’s most recent piece.  I get it, the tartan Fleur d’ lea, and I’m sure it has some Scottish heritage meaning behind it, and it is pretty cool looking.  Good colors.  He told me he is excited for his next tattoo which will be something beer related.

That said it got me thinking that I’m sure others that frequent this blog either have tattoos or are contemplating getting one.  We’d love to see your tattoos, and hear about your plans for your next bit of subcutaneous artwork.  So, in the comments here if you can post pictures of your ink, or tell us about your plans for your next tattoo, that would be great.  Chad had a bit of trouble trying to post this in the comments, so if it is hard to do, you can also put it on our twitter account at @beerandwhiskey and I’ll post it for you, or you can hit us up on our Facebook page too, at Beer and Whiskey Brothers.  SHOW US YOUR TATS!


UPDATE:  Here is another image from Matt Kupferer (Alaska Matt) He calls it his Jujitsu Tattoo.

    I don’t have one, but I knew someone who did.
    I got to state college in san francisco, where hipsters go to breed. I went out with this guy once and he mentioned he had a tatt. I was excited at first but then it turned out to be..and I shit you not, a Pabst Blue ribbon on his bicep. He said he’d lost a bet but I still had a “family emergency” that made it impossible for me to finish the date.
    Friends don’t let friends bang guys who like PBR

      Sometimes those “Family Emergencies” come in very handy! Good call.

    Thanks, guys! I’m Scotch-French, so that’s the meaning behind the tattoo.

      That’s a really cool way to blend the two. And it’s good ink. That tartan pattern is very unique for a tattoo.

      Nice. You obviously had someone who knows what the hell they are doing. I’ve seen many “patterns” like that bleed into each other and end up looking like a big blue blob. :-/

        It’s the Clan McNeal tartan. I had ties specially made for my father and I, and I took the tie to my tattoo guy and told him what I wanted. He did a phenomenal job. The colors still pop more than a year later. I couldn’t be happier with it

    I have no clue how to embed an image, but here’s mine:

    It derives from Ingmar Bergman, who once said:

    “The demons are innumerable, arrive at the most inappropriate times and create panic and terror,” he explained. “But I have learned that if I can master the negative forces and harness them to my chariot, then they can work to my advantage.”

    And he’d draw that stick figure demon on everything- the walls of his house, his signature, etc… It was a reminder for him to “harness his demons to his chariot” to work to his advantage. It’s a goofy, creepier, more complicated way of saying “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade”.
