Birgus latro ripped my flesh

I have a large tattoo of a coconut crab, Birgus latro, climbing up my left calf. Somehow it seems I never posted about this on NSL.   I had it done in Kailua right after the Pacific Cup last year, the artist is Laura Naylor.

The picture above is from when the tattoo was only a day or so old, it has lightened considerably since then.  There is a long story about me and coconut crabs that comes from when I was a little boy and we lived for a time on Kwajalein Atoll.    The pic below, which I stumbled on just  today,  is worth a thousand words.

Thanks to Grottu for the find, the original post is here.
