Ink It Up

And so it has started.  After 5 years of planning, my tattoo has finally become permanent.  Right now it looks like coloring book pages (just outline), but when it is complete; it will have tons of tiny details.  My piece of art I'll wear on my sleeve.  Yes I know these photos do not give it justice.  The artist, Jon was fantastic!  He drew it all on by hand and even did some of the details without sketching first.  Did I say he was amazing.  Anyway, my next visit he will finish drawing on Alice, cheshire cat,  the white rabbit, and the Duchess.  It will be a work in process for probably a year.  I am so excited to finally see it on me, although it is strange seeing my arm colored on.  I feel like a little kid.  Expect my next tattoo update in about a month.

OUCH....OUCH....OUCH... DID I SAY OUCH???? That looks really cool but don't think I could be under a needle that long your a trooper. I bet it will look awesome once all the colorings in there. Cool cant wait to see it finished.
