Daryl's amazing railroad tattoo (San Francisco)

 

Train tracks, switches and tunnels cover his entire body, front and back, from head to toes (litterally), in a perfectly symetrical and seamless pattern. He designed the tattoo and said it took 200 hours of work to realise the work.

 

Daryl spent many years of his life "freight train hopping", which involves countless days of walking long miles along desert tracks.

 

Most tunnels in Daryl's tattoo bear his birth year (1957), but this one has the number 5150, which is the US police code for "Mentally disturbed person" :)
