Okay; it is both.
Yesterday was my 1st of 2 appointments for my latest tattoo. Okay; my 10th tattoo. But is is actually my first tattoo (of more to come) that will be based on the stories I have cherished for as long as I have been reading. Which is a really, really long time.
I wanted to start with Narnia, and I knew it had to be Mr. Tumnus and the lamppost. I also wanted to include my favorite Bible verse (Psalm 119:105), so this was the perfect tattoo to start with.
It had to be old-school; an image that was in the original book. A little searching had many great ideas. Luckily my long-time tattoo artist is fabulous at drawing what I ask for, so I literally had no idea what this tattoo was going to look like when I walked in yesterday for my appointment. I had absolutely no concerns about how it was going to look.
I got the outline and shading done yesterday, and have an appointment in 3 weeks to get the light coloring added in. These are the best pictures I could get, being the only person home and the tattoo reaching from the top of my shoulder to my elbow.
Do you have any tattoos that show your love of books?
Looks nice! I don’t quite have a literary tattoo, but do have one that would sort of qualify. My Doctor Who/Torchwood tattoo goes from my knee to my ankle. It sort of makes the cut because of the DW comic books and TRWD books.
Awesome Courtney! I know this is just the beginning of a lengthy process of getting more artwork done 🙂 Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing!
Beautiful tattoo! I am working on an idea now that incorporates my obsession with reading. I can’t wait to finish it and find the right artist for it.
Thanks Heather! I cannot wait to see how it looks once the different colors get added in.
Very nice! I have yet to find a saying I want on me permanently, but that is awesome
Thanks Lunar Eyes 🙂
Looks like it hurt a bunch Angie…. Nice ink….
I have others that have hurt much worse, and this one is definitely worth it! Thanks Tony!
