Indian Tattoo

This is the Tattoo I want to get over the entirety of my left upper arm. Other locations I'm considering, Thigh, Calf and Face. Any input??

I'm semi-just kidding, but the above Native illustration is the cover art for a mega under-appreciated album by Full Blooded Kiowa-Comanche Jesse Ed Davis. Davis, who got his start playing guitar for Taj Mahal, but went on to record with such giants as John Lennon, George Harrison, Eric Clapton, Jackson Browne and Keith Moon. Initially dubbed a Session Musician, he finally decided to record his self-titled  solo debut in the early 70's. Word on the street is he just brought equal amounts of  recording equipment and contraband and invited Eric Clapton, Gram Parsons and Father Time himself, Leon Russell to join him and just let it rip. The product definitely stands the test of time as you will see below. Jesse Ed Davis, another name in a long line of unsung Native American Musical Heroes.

Jesse 'Ed' Davis - Tulsa County
