amazing drill skill you've got, and an awsome idea.
i think i'd prefer them in colour though and maybe of the same theme, like you've got japanese and traditional styles in the mix .

i was just kind of randomly patching together tattoos that everybodys got, not going for one theme or the oher as far as traditional and japanese. as far as color thats not one thing i do, it not like an ink drill the tattoo artists use so i would have to go in later with a brush to get the color in there and its just too big a pain. i did put enamel finish on my halo guitar and all the pictures turned black but naturally they are gonna stay white

Whammy bass ftw. How low does it go?
I have no idea what I'm talking about. Don't belive me.

I have never seen a Bass with a Floyd Rose or a tremolo at all. How? How is that possible? and another. Why? Is it necessary?

it goes low enough the strings will literally fall off the fretboard but i normally dont go that low, in fact since i switch from standard to drop c i put an extra two springs on the back of the trem so its pretty hard to move at all. really the trem doesnt do a lot for me. i can find some cool sound effects but as for the norm its pretty much useless

It looks good, but I really don't dig the clashing styles. The old school swallows really don't gel with the newer style, tacky stuff.

If you did a bass or guitar in all old school 'tattoos', it would look fantastic. Especially if you did the 'tattoos' in black on a flesh coloured guitar.

well like i said i was just going for cliche tattoos, not really an old or new theme, plus i figured it would be good advertisment for the tattoos to do a bunch, i know that bunching alot of them on the guitar like that doesnt make it look good but it does put more style pics on the agenda for someone else to see that may want it done. as far as flesh style guitar goes im not good with paint and i dont have the cash to buy a paint job or a new guitar

kinda the basic idea but its run from an air-pump and it uses a metal tip instead of a sanding or grinder tool. its much smaller than any dremel i have ever used so it seems to actually make the job easier this way

i don't know which is more amazing, the hand-drilled artwork or that bass bridge!

That looks really nice. I can only imagine how great a specific-themed guitar would look like. I think it would be cool to get something like that done to a cheaper guitar, but to be honest, I would let anybody with a drill within 100 feet of my MIM Strat.
