Amiga Tattoo - Closeup Next DaySince about 1998 I have had my eye on a nice Amiga tattoo design that I fell in love with the moment I saw it, and so finally last weekend I went ahead and had it inked onto my left arm. Over the years I had been putting it off for various reasons, cost and what-not. One of my neighbours was having a tattoo party and so I finally decided now was the time to get it done!

The Commodore Amiga has been a major part of my life for many wonderful years. I moved to the Amiga after spending several years coding on the ZX Spectrum. I learned to code C on the Amiga using SAS/C, and a few other languages including AMOS Basic and Blitz Basic. My Amiga is still a big part of my life, I currently have 3 of them in the house as well as a Pegasos II, and I am working on putting one of my A1200 machines into a tower (although its turning out to be a bit on the expensive side).

The tattoo was hand drawn & inked by local tattoo artist Jeff Benedict. The dark colouring on the boing ball and A is shadow and will eventually lighten up as my arm heals. The images represent the various logos use by the Amiga. AMIGAAAHHH!!
