New Ink

Last Saturday, I finally made an appointment to use a gift certificate that had been given to me from some very sweet people and went and got a new tattoo.

I've had this tattoo in mind for quite some time now and it looks better than I thought it would.  Of course I changed the font to my liking, but I think the finished tat is perfect.
It hurt pretty good and there were several points when I was ready to tell him to ease up, but he would stop before I could tell him too.  I still stand firm in saying that a wet paper towel never felt so good!

8 tattoos already and I still get nervous!

All done :)

The next day
My memorial tattoos for my boy (that's his actual handprint and his name is written in his handwriting in 2 of his favorite colors - John Deere green & yellow.  His dates are purple and orange - his other favorite colors).   I've already got plans for 2 more

Day 3 (sorry for the dark picture - the hubby isn't fond of photography)

I love it! How so very special! I want to get a tattoo also. I need to decide for sure what I want and then I am waiting for summer to be over. So glad you got what you wanted:)
