This piece was an add-on to the existing grenade tattoo that i had done approx. 2 years ago while at a Stained Skin guest spot. We added the explosion and some more blood and background at the Hell City Tattoo Fest 2006 to continue with the theme of war and bloodshed...quite obviously inspired by current world events. Oh yeah, in case you were too busy with Myspace or your SUV, there is an unwinnable, falsely justified, imperialist war going on right now in this place called Iraq. But no need to worry, just keep consuming!
