I’ve made a consultation appointment to talk about getting a new tattoo. I have a skiing themed tattoo on my left shoulder/arm already, and my children’s names on each forearm. I’d like to continue towards a full sleeve with a piece that represents my martial arts training. This is my idea. A muscular, shirtless grizzly bear (for Grizzly Gym), standing on hind legs wearing traditional Muay Thai head band (mongkon), arm bands (prajioud), and hand wraps. He will be in a strong fighters stance. His lower body will be wearing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu gi pants with a black belt (my ultimate BJJ goal). He should look ferocious… What do you think?
Here’s a link to some pictures and meanings of traditional Muay Thai tattoos.

I like the idea. Just as long as you can convey exactly what you mean to your artist, as it seems to have a lot of elements which need to be combined just right 😀
dammit reading about other peoples tattoos makes me even more impatient for my next session!!
Sounds badass to me! 🙂
I think it is an awesome idea, but agree with above. I would definitely bring in some pictures of grizzlies to your consultation so the artist can see your vision. Can’t wait to see it!
Sounds awesome – I love the Muay Thai element!
