Got this tattoo the same day my father died. I was actually on the chair when my sister kept calling me and I had to ask my artist if we could take a break. Called my sister back and she broke the news to me...I was in shock since I had just seen my dad four days prior and he seemed perfectly fine. I went back to the chair and told my artist what had happened and he asked if I wanted to continue. I told him yes and we continued for another five hours in complete silence. I pretty much just zoned out and he finally stopped and said "okay, I think thats enough for today." I ended up sobbing the moment I got to my car because it had finally sunk in that he was gone. It's a little bitter-sweet too since my dad and I both enjoyed the Alien movies and he also appreciated Giger's work. Hopefully I will finish this arm and have a whole Giger sleeve at some point....

my best friend was in town for most of october, and we got two more matching tattoos (we already had baby ducks from regular show)
double-snakes (mine was embellished by our tattoo artist)
i miss her so much already. three weeks after a year and a half isn't enough time.

received a surprise gift of money over the holidays and have decided to get my third, and last, tattoo.
waiting for consultation date.
the bootes constellation with a totem pole in the middle.
already sort of tripping, as i really am not fond of the process, but worth it for the end result.
anyway, pic upon completion <3

Been planning my next one. Giving serious consideration to this:

got this a couple weeks ago
designed by my best friend, tattooed by allie sider at logan square tattoo
it's a mix of things from the mini-series Over The Garden Wall (which i highly recommend watching, obviously). i believe it's on hulu.

Never thought I would want a "politically charged" tattoo, but this is something I've been thinking about off and on since before the election.
I've been wanting to get a pink triangle tattoo, but I'm still unsure where I want it. Especially since I don't do well with warm colors, and I don't want it to just look like a patch of mis-colored skin if it's too small.
(as far as placement, I already have a NIN logo and concert date of my first show on top left arm, AIR flag and # on top right arm, both are black ink only, and am leaving inside of lower left arm blank for a Fragile-inspired tattoo in the future when I find someone really good with what I'm looking to get.)

i think the best way to ensure that it doesn't look like discolored skin is to outline it in black or grey to define it better. also, that's an awesome idea for a tattoo. if i ever got any in something other than greyscale i'd probably go for one.

I was planning on my Fragile-themed one being my first color, but I really want to make sure it looks as amazing as possible, so I'm patient in waiting until I find an artist I like that I can go to for it. That, and I guess this would be a good way to test and see how my skin takes to color. I know my black didn't stay in very dark (and I have to have the AIR flag re-filled because it's pretty light in some spots). I wasn't sure about outlining, mostly just hoping that it doesn't take away from the pigment inside so much that it ends up looking like it's just an empty triangle.

some of that can be ink. my artist (who is amazing) had a bad batch of ink for a bit so a few of my tattoos need to be retouched because the ink just didn't hold its pigment properly (my regular show baby duck is a good example - the controller it's holding is supposed to be a solid black rectangle but it's really patchy).
