I finally - after years and years and years of wanting one.- got a cool, BIG tattoo with my kids names in it.
My sister, JC and I headed to the city yesterday morning... I was pretty sure of what I wanted, but wasn't expecting to get it all done in one day. I thought I'd sit through the outline & shading and go back another time for the color, but Tiffany - my rad tattoo artist - got it all done in about 3 hrs.
The process was pretty enjoyable overall, but I must admit that near the end I was VERY ready for it to be finished. Any time she'd stop for a few minutes (to mix colors or whatever), and then start up again was TORTURE! But, if you can give birth, getting a tattoo is nothing! ;)
Here's a pic of the finish product. I will post a better picture once the swelling and redness goes down.
