This ink rests on my right wrist. The artist responsible hails from a place where tattooing is strictly verboten. It means "chain" Japanese and commemorates the first chain patterns I taught myself more than 25 years ago. I eventually these learned were Japanese in origin; namely Hana and Hitoye-Gusari. Years later I became a fan of Bioshock and found the main character's tattoos ironic. I'm also a big fan of ninja weapons.
