A regular reader saw our Gun Tattoo of the Day feature and emailed us this pic of her inked shoulder. As Sly and the Family Stone sang, it’s a family affair. “This is just the beginning of the firearms ink, my pops also has an M4 on the outside of his forearm, a ruger logo on his shoulder and the second amendment/flag/reticle sleeve on his other shoulder, Oh yeah and his matching Buckmark. We decided on the buck mark since it depicts a buck and a doe, and my first firearm was a BPS 20 ga I got for Christmas when I was 12. Me, I’m too busy shooting 3-Gun and working in the firearms industry to venture and get my next ink (the Colt Rampant). I guess you could call us Gun Nuts =]” In a good way? Shot of Dad’s arm after the jump . . .

Couldn’t she just wear a Browning decal?
One fist of (shootin’) iron, the other of steel…
If the first round don’t hit you, the second one will…
Next time, wait ’til the swelling goes down.
I think I’ve seen more “slightly red” tattoos than ones like you’re talking about. Nothing wrong with it.
I like hers, by the way. I’m not so keen on the forearm Vaquero.
For shame Matt, that’s a Super Blackhawk. New model though, bah.
Whoops. Mea culpa. I don’t know from wheelguns, so I guessed.
I’ve never understood redneck’s infatuation with deer.
Yeah what are you talking about?
I’d be a redneck if it weren’t for lack-of-trailer-park and Southern accent.
I’d be a hippy if it weren’t for my love of guns and fast cars.
Let’s generalize and denigrate individual POTG some more, yes, right away! /s
Not that I am a typical redneck (college edumacated and all, and earning a generous salary to boot!) but deer tastes good, don’t you know?!!??
Venison – it’s whats for dinner… as well as pheasant, elk, bison, etc… Stop hating on good eats…
What is that thing on her shoulder? Some kind of weird fungus?
The doe is depicted in outline by the empty space in the figure. The colorful surrounding drawing then appears as a buck that is, well…on the doe. And the matching hoof-prints echo the theme.
I saw a decal on the back window of a truck the other day using the same design as the tattoo above, mirrored. One had antlers, one did not, and face to face they formed a heart. Ain’t redneck love sweet?
That’s the Browning logo boys. Hence the mention of her BPS.
Whats that thing under your Chin? 2 more Chins?
I see it now….. at first I thought it was a two headed snake, but just went and looked at the Browning logo.
Gotta tattoo on my dick: Warning: will fire with no magazine inserted!
Of course it’ll fire without a mag. It’s a single shot smoothbore. With a ready ammo pouch with 2 spare balls in it.
Most of the time it just says “Wad!”
Mine says, “Loaded when up.”
It’s California complaint.
Mine says, “Loaded when up.”
It’s California compliant.
You guys better not be in favor of microstamping…
It’s got to be high-visibility red or orange.
Beer, mouth – see comment – beer, screen, keyboard.
The alcohol abuse is all your fault!
There’s a joke about a guy that gets his girlfriend’s name tattooed somewhere uncomfortable. (Obligatory: “What, like the back of a Volkswagen?”) He then goes on vacation to the islands, and at one point glances over to the next urinal and says, “Hey, your girlfriend’s name is Wendy, too?”
“No, mon. ‘Welcome to Jamaica. Have a nice day!'”
Don’t get it. I’m sure it’s funny in Florida though! Everybody in Florida is funny.
The joke, one guesses, is that only in a certain condition could the entire tattoo be read. And he was no where near that condition.
He has a long dick.
I don’t get it, but seeing as I can’t tell a moose from a bear, well what can I say.
Scientifically, it actually is rifled, not smoothbore. Go look it up. And everybody learns something today!
*The more you know*
Sounds to me like someone’s been looking down the muzzle.(I really wish I knew how to do that smiley face icon thingy)
Just use punctuation plus letters without spaces. Watch
: – ) 🙂 : – P 😛 : – D 😀 ; – ) 😉 : – ( 🙁
This actually came about in a conversation when a friend (not Matt) had his first child. When the doc asked ‘snip or no snip?’ He didn’t know(he was 28 at the time). Neither did his wife! He called his dad from the delivery room to ask if he was circumcised or not! The doc who delivered the baby joking over them not knowing told him some facts of life, including the rifling bit. So of course we mock him mercilessly to this day for not knowing if he had a woody with a hoodie or not.
Ironic that a Ruger logo should be opposite a 2a tat, huh?
That was a while ago…
Nice tat, I can’t believe the creepers and haters coming out of the woodwork tonight. As long as your comfortable with it, enjoy!
Well, these comments aren’t exactly going the way she expected. Can’t wait for the Colt pic.
Nice tat, not into them, but great revolver design.
Love the ink. I can’t wait to see the rest of the tats you have planned.
Last week a saw a deer with a tattoo of a woman and little high heel tracks. It was quite amusing.
News story from the future…
“A local sheriff’s deputy is on paid administrative leave after shooting an unarmed man during a traffic stop. Witnesses say the deputy ordered the man to ‘show his hands’ after the man exited his vehicle in an ‘agitated state.’ What happened next is unclear. Some say the man was simply raising his hands up as ordered. The deputy contends he saw the man reach for and draw ‘a large hunting revolver from his waistline.’ Friends of the man, who is currently listed in critical condition at General Hospital, told Action News that he does have ‘several tattoos of guns’ including one of a revolver on the inside of his right forearm ‘that extends from wrist to elbow.'”
So did Browning pay for the tattoo or what?
What’s next? Tapout? Mossy Oak?
Sorry I just don’t care for people plastering corporate logos on their bodies.
Not a bad idea, get a full body tattoo of the mossy oak cammo pattern and hunt NAKED!
MAXIMUM OPERATOR STATUS: ACHIEVED
Pretty sure you need digital cam for that
Total body multicam would be even more awesome.
When the father goes through TSA screening, do they make him throw away his arm?
Yeah i dont get it, why spend on ink when you can spend on ammunition
’cause it’s pretty easy to reload cartridges yaself if you have the gear.
I’m still working on self-tattooing that doesn’t look like I failed the “color inside the lines” part of kindergarten.
A disguised “that’s what she said” joke? What, is TTAG trying to appeal to more of the UK audience?
No, they’re just trying to separate the wheat from the chaff, the men from the boys, the awkwardly feminine from the possibly Canadian.
Usually you have to pay double for that action.
“buck mark since it depicts a buck and a doe”
I’ve seen that graphic, 50 times, never noticed the doe….I’m better informed…thanks TTAG and tat’s.
I’m not a hunter, but I’ve never seen deer prints with toe nails before. What causes the toe nail imprint?
they’re the dew claws, and usually only show up when the animal impacts hard (i.e. running) or is walking in really soft ground.
At least she put it in a place that she can easily cover up when she is older and realizes it was pretty stupid to get it in the first place, unlike the neck tramp stamp the other gal got.
Revolver on the arm looks nice… but the Browning deer? Meh.
Cool tats! I hope the full firearm tat never gets mistaken for the real deal.
