I designed a tattoo that incorporates the three most important things to me - my faith, family and music. The three stars represent my wife and two boys.

I couldn't be more pleased.

I KNEW someone would jump on the Strat headstock! :) I even told the artist that once I posted the picture here I was gonna get the business.

Honestly, as much of a Tele fanatic I am, I prefer the Strat headstock (ducking). My custom built Tele even has a Strat neck.

I did try the design with a Tele and with both a 70s and 50s style Strat headstock and to me, the classic Strat one pleased my eye the most.

Sorry guys :)

interesting.
a buddy of mine had his jazzmaster tatooed on his upper chest. Color wore off
by now, but it was sunburst.

I will if you do.
Some of us can at least grow a fringe to cover it.

I'm always worried when I see a title like this, but, I REALLY like what you had done. It's subtle, personal and well executed. Very nice!!

Same here. This was nicely done, congrats. I find simpler is generally better when it comes to tats. All four of mine are solid black like this one.
