|I'm 90% sure I'm getting it on my calf, not thigh, but I just love this image.|
Yes, it's the tattoo again, apologies if you've had an overload this week, but it's on my mind, and it's a big deal for me, so I'm gonna document it!
Last week I dreamt I was being tattooed by a female artist, which struck me as a little strange, as I'd only come across male ones in my online research.
|I love the imagery and the colours in this.|
I'm "getting inked" next week, just in time for my birthday. It'll be done in one 4 hour session, and is twice my original budget, but this is a piece of custom art just for me, forever. I think it's worth it.
|I'm a sucker for Disney films, and the stained glass effect will definitely appear in my tattoo|
|Tim Shumate's images are perfect as tattoo inspiration, kickass females|
|I love the "Drink me" and "Eat me" part of the story|
I also got nervous at the sight of the tattooing in practise. Yes, I gave birth twice, but this is a different kind of physical sensation, and I was SO uncomfortable getting my back piece done, it's freaking me out a bit. I've decided to take a painkiller (or 2) beforehand, as the thought of a 4 hour session is a bit nerve-wracking.
On another note, today I left rock-mama behind and entered rockabilly mama phase. I go in and out of these phases, one into another, every few months. I wore red lipstick into town with quite a retro outfit. I loved how it looked in the safety of my house, but to be honest I felt quite uncomfortable walking through town. Red lipstick I've decided is akin to wearing a mini skirt with bare legs. You feel like you've nowhere to hide. I wasn't feeling "out there" yet my outfit said "look at me", so people did. I suppose that's character-building, though, right?
Have you any tattoos? Do you still love them?
