I tried to hire Felix as a model for the photoshoot but he wasn't available so I hired a stand in...he showed up a little late with some excuse about "how the bus didn't pass through the lower east side and that he had to ride his bike to work"....but hey, the photo shoot went well and he was only $20 bucks for the afternoon.

- just having a little fun, I actually saw some world war 2 tattoo flash art online and some looked so basic and like simple line art yet it was compelling to look at. So I wanted to try my hand at a vintage style Felix the cat....I plan to try some of those eagles next...those old poorly done sailor tattoos are really fun to look at on Pinterest. The quality of tatoos have really come along way!

Love this one, John.  Fantastic and time appropriate advertising.

I have them tattoos, I had them done in the late 70s, the guy who did them only had 6 designs, I had all 6 put on whilst sat on is bed in his small flat, hygiene did not come into it, they say it was miss spent youth.

One good thing about those old tattoos, you can still see them from 20 yards away ;-)
