So, the tattoo.... She'd decided that she wanted one more than a year ago & has been looking at tattoo flash ever since. I have 4 tattoos & all but the little hummingbird are my own design. She decided that she would design her own. Her design is of two intertwined hearts with the Japanese word(s) for Friendship in the middle.
The Princess' rite of passage:
|Touched for the first time - Ryan doing line work|
|Adding color was painful. She was a trouper!|
|The finished product.|
It looks even nicer now without the redness in it. I know that tattoos aren't for everyone. I didn't get one until I was 40 (it was my birthday present from King T). I got Classic Pooh - stuck in Rabbit's hole on my ankle. Pooh's head is on the outside & his butt is on the inside. I have a vine with pink & purple flowers connecting them. It amazes me to look at some of the work that people have had done - some gross, ugly stuff (at least to me), stuff that was done poorly & stuff that is pretty amazing. I saw a spider tattoo that looked 3-D with the shadowing - not necessarily the spider part... but the 3-D effect was incredible. Anyhoot, she's very happy with it and that's what counts.
I've been slowly working on a project. It should be finished soon & I'll post about it, including pics (come on, I know you're impressed. 'Cause I'm all cool & stuff 'cause I know how to upload pics now). Until then, have a great rest of the week.
Bye! Love you! Have a good day, Dear!
