This odd combination of elements was meant to depict Jeff's love for mechanics, gearhead culture, the outdoors, and snowmobiling. Everything was drawn on with marker and built up with 2-3 layers of tattoo pigment, except for the inner arm portion, which was done on the last sitting, and is still fresh in this photo. The Rat Fink inspired character is my personal adaptation in homage to the Big Daddy Roth characters prevalent in classic gearhead subculture.
