i hope i've come to the right place! ~ i can't imagine a better one for this question!

my old lover and friend for years passed away last month at the tender age of 36 from brain cancer. he suffered on and off for years. at peace at last, i know, and i've promised to keep the memories of us alive and well and enjoyed down here.

even though i've been trying to figure out what kind of art i wanted for a long time, i never could quite decide.

although we went to TONS of concerts over the years, our very first was to see the ABB at The Beacon in NYC. it was when we first started seeing one another, and we had a BLAST! at one point during the show, i leaned over and ran my finger down his chest telling him, "you can feel the bass... here." {sigh} it's one of those moments that will live with me forever, and i know he treasured.

i'd like something (probably other than a mushroom), but what i would really like, is something to define bass with it. anything that would have a correlation to the ABB is great, but i need it to be personalized with our "sharing the bass" moment.

Steve was TREMENDOUS fan and audiophile who followed the dead, allman brothers, phish and music in general. i can't believe he's gone. just a few days after his passing, i got my tix for the upcoming show in charlotte.

please, if you have any thoughts or ideas for me, i'd really appreciate your sharing them. thank you much.

Something with the bass clef would be good.

Sorry to hear your friend passed. It's very thoughtful of you to want to memorialize him with a tattoo. I would include the following symbol. It's a bass clef, the symbol that represents the bass notes in music. Eventually, I'm going to get one, just don't know where it'll go yet.

i was thinking the very same thing! y'all are awesome!!

it is a very good idea! thank you! i'd like to use it in conjunction with something else. since i'm not sure about the mushroom, what about the peach maybe? i've tried looking at on-line pics of the members tats, but some of them are kind of crazy for me!!

is there something else that might symbolize the band well?

thank you for the warm welcome! i assure you, i came here only because i know what a tight knit group is here and knowledgeable!, not because i think everyone's all inked up!!

i was also a little apprehensive, but i see that was for nothing! whew!

i have so many memories of us through the years, but music is such a strong and powerful link. see, now i better stop before i get all teary eyed again.

How about the Eat a Peach album cover, with the truck carrying the peach, with the bass clef inside of the peach?

This is the third time the bass clef for a tattoo idea has come up for me in the past week. My friend wants to get one on his chest about sacuer plate-sized. I say get a peach-colored bass clef- whatever size!

For a little inspiration here is my three week old tattoo.

And sorry to hear about the passing of your friend from brain cancer recently. I hope he did not suffer too badly.

the shading is very well done.

My mule tattoo is going to be this. I would like it to be red and 3 Mules not 4. The 3 for Warren, Allen and Matt. On Top "Gov't Mule" On the bottom would be "Music For Your Ass!"

The one I want with 3


4 Dose Logo


My current tat is this ( small and left it so I can expand, done in 1996 in Sarasota Fl. Please do not mind the sunburn)

I'm trying to come up with a right upper sleeve that is Allmans-related. I am thinking either the BWIAB art:



or something peach:



bunnybun, you might want to look at some of these stickers & posters that are all Allmans related & some more specifically Beacon related:

http://www.hittinthenote.com/cart/c-39-stickers.aspx

posters:

http://www.hittinthenote.com/cart/c-38-posters.aspx

You could easily take one of these designs & incorporate a bass clef in to it, which would nail down all three of your ideas: Allmans, Beacon, Bass

Peace~!

i LOVE the idea of a peach colored bass clef!! i have very light skin, so a good peach color may work! and yet it can be amaller size, maybe on the outside on my ankle. ouch, i know...

and thank you everyone for your condolences, they mean the world to me.

sweet tat too!

and thank you for the links. i also really like the flying peach, the wings remind me of the babies i lost this past year. i was wondering if i'd be able to incorporate something for them. but didn't want this to get too big or busy, you know?

i also really like the split peach, with the banner above it.

i may be confused, but i am certainly getting direction here!! i could just hug you all!!

I am sorry for your loss; it's apparent you will carry his memory with you always. How about planting a remembrance tree instead?
