I finally did it. I went and had my tattoo fixed up and added to.
I went with my friend Jared this afternoon. He had his done first (pic to follow shortly)
and then it was my turn. The very talented Jade McLean of Jaded Ink took my very basic idea and created a custom design for me. It took about 25 minutes and was as painful and not as painful as I thought it would be, if that makes any sense.
I was going to keep the ink to my lower back but we decided that would be too traditional, instead we moved up the right side of my back, and it leaves space to possibly add more at a later stage.
I am so glad I finally got to do this and I LOVE the final artwork!
Jared, Shirley and I went to Jaded Ink this morning to discuss and choose our various tattoos.
Jaded Ink is owned and run by an old school friend, Jade. I was so excited to see that he had opened his own shop and to see that he is doing so well.
Jared and Shirley have both decided on what they want and now have to decide when they are going to do it. I have decided to fix up and add to my original tattoo and to keep the ink to my lower back. I have made my appointment for Friday 29th so stay tuned, I will definitely be putting pics up!
Here is a shot of my current tat, it is on my lower back to the right and is slightly larger than a R5 coin.
The new section will run across my lower back towards the left and slightly lower and will have space to add more later on. I want to add some twirly stems and two more ‘flowers’ to represent Paul and Aaron and our connections to each other, the space will hopefully be taken up by any more children we have.
