New here (kinda long..)Greetings, Mamas!
After years of longing for a tattoo, I got one last June!! : It's a celtic tree-of-life design, but uniquely mine...I brought in a design that I liked, and the artist had some of his own, so we combined the top of mine with the bottom of one of his, and made a new one! It's a stylized, celtic knot design, with a treble cleff worked into the trunk of the tree. I need to have someone take a pic so that I can post it here. I'm so proud of it; since it's my first, I was thrilled when it didn't smudge, didn't come off in the shower, etc...it was part of me! Mine! It still makes me happy when I think about it. It's on my right upper thigh, sort of on my hip...the only "problem", if you can call it that, is that I can't just show it to anyone when I feel like it, kwim? I want to get another one that can be covered easily, but that I can let show if I want to.
I, too, love my artist. He was very reassuring, had no problem with a friend of mine coming with me to "hold my hand" figuratively speaking, and when I came back for him to finish it, he said I should be proud of myself, that I didn't need any hand-holding, that I was a "big girl" and could do it myself!
This tattoo is a kind of spiritual growth thing for me. That's another story though... I'll share it sometime...
and to everyone,
Raven : : : hale:
