ShortArmGuy Gets Inked For Miami Ink

Though he is very well known in Minnesota, ShortArmGuy, also a fellow co-worker, was selected to get filmed for the The Learning Chanel's reality show, Miami Ink. Out of the thousands or so of applications they receive on a weekly basis, ShortArmGuy was selected to have a tattoo inked at the famous Miami Ink Tattoo Parlor. While there is no guarantee that his footage will make it on air, if it does however, it wont appear until sometime in 2008. I will certainly provide updates when warranted. ShortArmGuy was tattooed by one of the best in the business, Chris Garver. He helped design the final design of the tattoo. A bit of information about the tattoo design, the storm represents the challenges him and his family have been through. The hand is him and his family. The sunny sky represents hope for the future. I can honestly say, that pretty much sums up what I know about ShortArmGuy and his family. Despite the hard, tough challenges they have been through, they always stay positive and believe that everything will work out in the end.

Cool! Please keep us informed when the show is to be aired. I'll make a point to watch it. Very nice tatt, but man does that look painful.

City Daily Photo bloggers who would certainly get a kick from seeing the tattoo photos would include Chris from Newcastle, UK and Karine from Buenos Aires (Argentina).

Very original - I like that his tattoo has so much meaning behind it. Hope the episode makes it on air!

What a character! Fun post, Slinger.

(my nephew was born with 6 fingers - it seems to help him in pitching baseball ;-))

Very cool! Thanks for sharing this with us today :) Chris Garver is my favorite tattoo artist among the Miami Ink gang. If I ever go to Miami, I'll for sure stop by to the store have a tattoo done :) Nice posting!

I followed your link, and was amazed at what one family has had to endure. And, he still maintains a sense of humor. Amazing.
