While many old-school guns only sit in glass cases or are mounted above a fireplace, many have chosen to get their faves permanently inked on their skin. This month’s column brings you two vintage-inspired offerings we thought you’d find interesting. Keep those submissions rolling in.

Jeff Schnegelberger: I got this done at Hart and Huntington in Las Vegas. The artist was Blanco, and he did a great job. I served 20 years in the Air National Guard, and this represents that service.

Kaden Roholt:  My gun tat is of a flintlock pistol. I’ve been buying and upgrading guns for a few years, and it’s now one of my biggest hobbies. I wanted to get something that I could show off as a gun collector’s piece, and I really liked the old-school design of the flintlock pistol.
