Left Hip - Winnie The Pooh
This was one of my first two tattoos. I got this one and my starbust in the spring of 1989, during my sophmore year at Earlham College, at Glenn Scott Tattoos in Dayton Ohio. Glenn Scott inked it personally, and only charged me $50.
A friend, Jeffrey "Potter" Sibley, was with me and got a much larger tattoo of an octopus holding drumsticks. Two months later Potter approached me and asked to borrow my car. He had changed his mind about the tattoo. He didn't want to be an old man with it on his back. He would drive to a nearby hospital and pay a lot of money to have a laser remove the tattoo. I agreed but moved some weeks later. Potter didn't know my new address and so couldn't find me to borrow my car and had to miss his appointment. Three months after that he went back to Glenn Scott to complain. An octopus has eight arms and his tattoo only six arms. So he got an addtional two arms at a discount.
