Frogbat by JonBeanHastings Frogbat by JonBeanHastings
My friend Erica asked me to design a tattoo for her. She likes frogs and creepy stuff, so I figured a Frogbat that looks like it just landed on her leg would do the trick.

Watercolor and Speedball Superblack ink.

The final, tattooed-on-Erica version can be found here: [link]

Yup, it's a tattoo. My friend Erica gave me a list of things she liked and "spooky" and "frog" were on it, so... FROGBAT! I'm seeing her tomorrow, so I will yell loudly, "PANTS OFF SO THAT I MAY SEE THE FROGBAT!" (hopefully in public!)

You have a Mystery Foot?! Wow, I've always wanted one of... wait, Mystery Foot? Is that like the Mystery Ear Kyle MacLachlan's character in "Blue Velvet" finds?

I"m not sure I haven't seen blue velvet.... but the foot is a preserved appendage of some unknown animal.... its in a little wooden box that sits near my computer monitor...

Wow. The weirdest thing I have by my monitor is a googly-eyed owl charm that I found in a crypt.

That's awesome! I am jealous of her lovely frog-bat and lack of needle fears. Very nice:)

Hahaha, nice! I think I'll have to watch that if I ever get a chance.

You'd still be braver than me if you managed to get a dot...I'd probably be out of there before the needle came within 3 feet of me...:P

There's a scene in the old TV show "Bosom Buddies" where Kip (played by a young Tom Hanks) gets drunk and decides to get a tattoo to impress his lady love. He makes it all the way to the tattoo parlor, picks out a tat, takes his shirt off and sits in the chair. Cut to: Kip running screaming shirtless from tattoo parlor. He managed to sit under the needle long enough to get what he called "a love dot."

That'd be me if I got a tattoo.
