I wish this was a regular thing! Haha but no…. Just a I got lucky enough to save up some $$$ to get some work done.
Several months back, I had this guy, from wall flash, tattooed on my thigh.
And after sending over my ideas and some inspiration images to my artist, which included photos of an enamel pin, a watercolor painting, and a piece of polymer clay sculpture, he came up with this.
There will be some other small details added around it before it’s done.
Anyway, I was having pre-tattoo anxiety last night so I was up late, and then woke up super early with pre-tattoo excitement this morning. I pottered around the house, watched some Nurse Jackie, gave Moppie her meds, and ate a good breakfast. Then I hopped in the car to head into town.
Crown and Dagger Tattoo and my bank are on the same block, so I found street parking, walked to the ATM, got cash, and sat on a bench to wait for the shop to open. I was wearing shorts for easy access to my thigh. The bench was metal, and very cold. I did not stay sitting long.
Finally I went in and Charlie got to work getting my stencil ready, and then he applied it. He busted out a sharpie to make a few minor edits directly on my thigh. Then we got started.
About 2 hours after I had arrived, I had this.
I’ll be going back in the next couple months for one final session, but I love how he got was I was imagining just right!
