Newest model

Darren McCarty will appear in the November issue of the magazine, "Inked." The Red Wing was photographed at Joe Louis Arena for a short item about tattoos.

McCarty went with Bob Probert to Chicago in 1993 to get his first tattoo. He's gotten several since and has plans for four more tattoos when he gets the time to have them done.

"For me it's an art; It means something," said McCarty. "I couldn't just look in a magazine (for a design). It has to be something with meaning, something original."

Among McCarty's tattoos are a piano that his grandmother used to play, a remembrance of a former bandmate who died of heart disease and initials and designs for his children.
