12. Couple's Contagion
If your partner was covered in tats, it makes sense that you might join in, maybe even get inked together. Conversations would revolve around designs and you could do research and collaborate on ideas. Sounds pretty awesome!
13. The Lizardman: Eric Sprague

15. Intriguingly Asymmetric
At times, a full body tattoo is a design just on the chest and hands or a leg and arms. Actually it's refreshing to see the contrast of bare skin next to large swaths of ink. It allows you to catch your breath in-between the colored images and patterns, not to mention she's pretty glam!
16. Dylan Richter: Musician Singer
The recently departed vocalist of rock band, Fallen Dreams is from Detroit, Michigan. In an video interview he mentions he has most of his body tattooed, but he'll never ink his face. We hope he'll stay true to his word, it would be a shame to cover it up!
17. The Over-Flowing Cornucopia
The vibrant color of ink pops here and your eyes don't know where to look first! It could take a couple of hours just to examine it all. Check-out the hand holding the vegetables on her shin and the amazing turquoise and blue sleeve on her forearm up to her wrist! Sweet!
