"Your body is a temple, but how long can you live in the same house before you redecorate?"
I didn't want to say anything, just in case I jinxed it, but I had my rescheduled tattoo appointment yesterday. I showed up at 1. Hubby worked through his lunch hour so he could come up there and help me pick out the flower style and placement. I figure, he's the one who's going to have to look at it for forever, right?
The tattoo artist was Casey Cokrlic. Seriously, he's the man. We talked about the kinds of flowers I wanted, and he free handed them on me. Pretty cool not to have flash (the tattoo pics on the wall) just copied and pasted on me. Plus, he was able to work with the work I already have.
Here he is, drawing it on me. He first sketched out everything in red, and then went back with the ink pen and finalized the drawing.
We went with just the line work today, and made the appointment to finished it for June 10th. Tattoos seem to heal better when you split it up and not do too much at one time.
So here it is now. We (I say we like I did anything besides sit there, LOL) did cherry blossoms around the whole thing, with a chrysanthemum at the bottom.
With a big peony on the back side. I think I'm going to have him add a few more cherry blossoms on the inside of my arm (ouch) but I think it'd fill it in better. Hubby wants me to do gray whispy smoke around the whole thing, but I'm undecided. He says it'd fill it in more, Casey said it'd make it a heavier piece. But I figure, I'm little and girly, I don't need a huge heavy tattoo. But I might change my mind, I dunno.
Hubby of course, starting jonesing for a new tattoo while he was there. So we scheduled him an appointment for the 10th too. He has a tribal shoulder cap and the upper part of his arm done. They're talking about adding some black Japanese waves and a big koi fish, and turning it into a 3/4 sleeve.
So, share. Tattoos, yay or nay? Do you have any? Plan to get any more? Love them but couldn't do it?
