Tattoo

Unread postby praetor242 » Fri Jul 14, 2017 10:37 pm

So it's my 35th birthday, and I'm getting a new tattoo for my birthday, and I want the SGI cube.

If it weren't for SGI, I'd be a car mechanic. Probably not. But the alternate reality is stil pretty frightening. They inspired me to do computer work, and working for them for that brief time was my taste of heaven. So I pose this.

Should I get the flat cube, or the shaded one?

Hope your tattoo artist is better at drawing it than I am.

Always get confused about which lines should be visible, and where the gaps go.

Shaded if good tattoo artist, otherwise be conservative. =)

I am pretty much anti tat..... but!.... if I were to get a tattoo, you better believe it would be an SGI cube! I would go dark blue flat.
