(If by silliness you mean too too tattooo related—which I always do.)
Short & sweet with with a smattering of whining sprinkled in for good measure.
A few of you have emailed & asked if I plan to post a video of my finished tattoo.
(and yes. how much do I adore that anyone gives a rat’s ass chickenbus about this outside of, well, ME.)
I may—but Im nowhere near finished yet.
Here is what it looked like at BlogHer (or a part of it anyway):
The tattoo is completed image-wise but to my eye all the images appear to be floating/unanchored.
(Ive been surprised at the number of people, even tattoo artists, who like it as is. Not me. I looks as though Mister Doesnt Like Green Eggs is hovering with Horton & Van Vleck (anyone know that one?) floating past every once in a while.)
The plan has always been to add in a background so that I could create a pant-leg (I still love the term leg-sleeve no matter how frequently Im told it’s incorrrect).
Last weekend I started the background:
Id say this is going to take EONS but the artist is moving in October. So it’s gonna have to be done soon or Ill be blogging at you live from LA.
The Tornado has had some work done recently as well.
Ren Man must have signed her parental release as she entirely surprised me the below one afternoon:
Totally cracked me up & yet I still anticipate she’ll be more peals & twin sets as an adult in protest to my being….decidedly not.
Or in reaction to being forced to to this.
Speaking of my parents coming to visit today (because we were, right?) Im curious what their reaction will be to the Suess.
I’d actually initially written the previous sentence with the word dreading crossed out (I know. I so funny.) then realized Im really not.
Im a big believer in NOT getting a tattoo unless you feel entirely as though it were ALWAYS THERE & JUST RISEN TO THE SURFACE.
That’s how I feel about my leg.
Im curious what their reactions will be (yada yada yada they dont read the blog much) & know, regardless what it is, the art is 100% me.
We’ve now arrived at the awkward segue & whine portion of our post.
And it’s easy.

That’s it, People.
