Mike lied... although previously stating he would not unveil his new ink until September, the cat is now officially out of the bag! I guess our Holmes Spot Tattoo Watch 2012 was just too much pressure on him, and he had no choice but to release these pics [/sarcasm]. Honestly, I don't even wish for that kind of influence, but one thing is certain, the tats are BIG, and very elaborate. Mike posted these pictures on his website, yesterday.
As the above photos show, his right bicep sports a large English bulldog with big muscular folded arms and the all-too-familiar overalls. Underneath the bulldog (an homage to his previous tattoo, no doubt) is his slogan and trademark, Make It Right, which was added to his arm back in 2006 above the original bulldog, now covered. And finally, beneath the motto is a saw and hammer displayed in a crisscross fashion much like a skull and crossbones. Mike's enormous tattoo is framed by a large brick wall.
On his left bicep is a large and very ornate viking figure, on bended knee. The viking has long braids, big bulging muscles, and is armed with a sword across his back. (Is Mike Nordic? I thought he was Scottish. Hmmmm?)
This ends what could have been a fun and productive summer of trying to find elusive photos of Mike's new tattoos. Booo!!! The Holmes Spot officially grants you permission to go sleeveless once again, Mike. By the looks of it, you've earned it.
