Fresh ink. my burning F (pics / clip)


Recommended Posts

Ok, there is a little more to this story then JUST the F logo.

First of all, this is the best car i have ever owned. I will probably never let it go. Even if i did, i would NOT regret what you are about to see.

The story starts out way before i got my car. A few years back, my dream car was a CTS-V. Not a CTS v6, but a straight up V :D. I told myself that if i ever was able to pay such an expensive car off, i would get a sick ass V logo tatted on me as a way to say I DID IT and also, its a badass ride. Anyhow, i was only dreaming of a car like that but eventiually, I paid my Tahoe off and then worked my ass off, saved enough money for a very nice down payment on one. I knew i could afford it. But would they sell it to me was the question. The answer is no. I got turned down. I had ok credit, but there was one little thing on it that was a deal breaker. It was easily fixed, but at that moment, it was enough to send me and my down payment home with my tail between my legs. So i decided to go look for other cars. Stopped by and looked at some newerish/used BMW's. I just wasn't feeling them. Stopped by Lexus of Sac to see what all they had and within a few hours, was driving my beloved '09 IS-250. They approved me! Within a few days, i realized i should have gotten at least the IS350. I was kinda sad but i still loved the shit out of the 250. Great car! 6 months later, someone rear ended my 250 and totaled it. The dust wasn't even clear and i already had the upgrade (is350) planned. :D :D

To make a long story shorter, since my credit was fixed, my score went back up and i actually qualified for the IS-F! (Brand new, not used) So off i was. This is a HELL of a commitment. I am NOT rich by any means. So this is definitely a scary payment and i told myself if i made it all the way through and payed it off, i would get an F tattoo :D . 2 Years, 11 months and 3 days of a 6 year loan, and i paid it off (last month). I tossed the hint out to my artist and friend Bill Liberty (Bill Liberty Tattoo) on Facebook, but i know he is booked until July. Lucky for me, someone just cancelled, they offered me the chair...... and IN like Flinn i was.

So the following pictures are as much about me living up to a BIG commitment in my life as they are about my favorite car EVER. :)

Krakin, are you some sort of mad scientist?

I would have replied earlier, but I was measuring the output of my amp with a yardstick . . .

What you hear is not the air pressure variation in itself

but what has drawn your attention

in the two streams of superimposed air pressure variations at your eardrums

An acoustic event has dimensions of Time, Tone, Loudness and Space

Everyone learns to render the 3-dimensional localization of sound based on the individual shape of their ears,

thus no formula can achieve a definite effect for every listener.

That's where I was going to tat next. But I wimped out and did my hand/fingers first. Looks good. That's like putting a woman's name on you

wifes name is on my other side - been there almost 20 years :D

and the F logo isn't like a woman's name at all. Even if i got rid of this car at some point for any reason, nobody can take away the fact i survived the biggest loan of my life short of my house payment. :D
