Tattoo Artist: Ben T. Fiedler at Resurrection Tattoo in Austin, TX
Why: I’m a big Hitchhiker’s Guide fan. I re-read all five (now six) books every year, and while doing this year’s read, the idea of getting a tattoo popped into my head. I thought of all sorts of different things, but settled on this scene because I liked the symmetry of the two arms. Also, a very good friend of mine skates on a roller derby team, and her skater name is Ono Notagain (her number is 42), so this is a subtle homage to her.
Ed Note: Awesome. Probably my favorite Hitchhiker’s tattoo submitted thus far.
