Without even realizing it, the tattoos I've chosen to show you all kind of relate to one another and tell a story. By burning a candle at both ends, you're worn out with feelings of wanderlust. The desire to travel and get out in nature is strong. There's so much we all want to achieve and experience before the apocalypse comes and we all disappear into the abyss that is the galaxy and beyond.

Please excuse my ramblings and enjoy these bold traditional tattoos by James Ghrey, and then draw your own conclusions....
