USMC Tattoo – EGA STENCIL: Eagle Globe & Anchor LINE ART

I always wanted a nice Eagle Globe & Anchor tattoo. I asked a good friend of mine, Marine Mike Leahy (http://www.thehootch.com) to draw the EGA for me, which he did. I took Mike’s hand-drawn EGA and had it made into a tattoo. I think it came out really awesome! If you use Mike’s EGA for YOUR tattoo, let me know.

Here’s the 1st stage EGA “LINE ART” version, before the shading.

Here it is, 2nd stage, after shading:

Here’s what the tattoo looked like once completed.
