Wow! This is a great poem of history as his back tattoo. This is ‘If’ by Rudyard Kipling and is a very cool idea for a back piece. A beautiful poem on your back will make half of the crowd behind you. 🙂 The tattoo is by Cam von Cook at Osborne Village Ink in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
However, if I would have to make a choice I would have inked Robert Frost’s ‘Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening’.
If I could not take the pain to ink whole poem I would have liked to ink only last three lines:
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
