Tattoo Me...

I'm back.  It wasn't that bad actually.  It took an hour, and at first it didn't even bother me, but that is probably due in large part to the location of the tattoo.  Worse part was at the end, when she had to go back over a couple of areas to make the shadows and 3-D effect.  The artist did an excellent job.  Soon as she was done, everyone in the store had to come have a looksee.  So much for me being shy. Can't show you right now, as I am bandaged with lotion on the site.  But in a half an hour, the bandage comes off and I'll 'reveal' it to you.  :)  Skipped the navel piercing.  Maybe another time.

In the mean time, check out some of her other work
Skin Deep Design

 

Left: The tat, Right: the inspriation.  The design is an old Scottish symbol, called a Luckenbooth, dating back to the 1700's.  I purchased the necklace in 1991 at Edenburgh Castle in Scotland, and from the day I bought it, I told myself I'd have it tattooed on me as well.  That day has arrived.

The pendant measures 5/8" x 3/4" and the tat is just a tad bit larger.  Given how small the tat is, she did a fine job, I think.  The tatt looks a bit distorted because of the angle of the camera and me twisting.  I'll try to get a better one and put it up.

That's great!  Especially as it's something you wanted done for so long.  Where is it though?  Brave you, I know the outlining and shading hurts the worst!

Damn Girl!  I'm impressed.  I have always wanted to get a tatoo (a cloud with a lightening bolt and rain) but I am too much of a coward.  Needles make me crazy.....

Its beautiful!
