add 'tattoo designer' under list of careers

so two (that's right, two!) people in the last two (yes, again, two!) days have asked me to custom design tattoos for them.  this pleases me to no end and i cannot wait to post samples up here when i've got some sketches up here. as a bit of a place-holder/inspiration accumulation, i'm deeply inspired by these gorgeous examples of either hand-lettered, drawn or personal-image based inkings.  any favorites of your own?
