Inkalicious~


Well well well...This past weekend several of my friends from Minnesota that I met through scrapbooking via the Internet got together here at my house. We spent the weekend shopping and carrying on. I will more than likely post more about it later.

But one of the highlights of my weekend was getting new "ink". I had been thinking about getting a new tattoo {like I needed another}haha.. anyway. I had seriously wanted 3 nautical stars on my wrist a bit smaller than dimes to represent each of the boys. The artist did not want to do anything that small, so I had to go with my 2nd choice which was a swallow.

They say that they are old school* tattoos but have been recently revived.. and this is true as I have admired Marah Johnsons art work using swallows. I decided that Id go for it and decided that Id go with getting one on my wrist. I chose teal and pink with blue highlights. Swallows represent freedom, love and loyalty.. and I think it suits me fine. I love it...

The artist that did the tattoo was an old school mate of Todds, so I think with the price and the nice work, I may be getting a few more in the future to really finish the representation of my boys. I wish my Dad were alive.. Id love to show him. I think he would like it a bunch. {he and I both shared a love for tattoo art}
