Sorry for the glare, the ointment gives a nice reflection. Waiting a few weeks and then bringing in the Sherlock Holmes ink I want done so they can draw it up for me.
On another note, I have many, many book reviews coming up. Stay Tuned!
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?
