A few weeks ago I attended an auction to raise money for Autism and the prizes were all monetary gifts on tattoo work. Happily, I won a $200 certificate to a local place that came highly recommended.
I’ve had the idea for a quill tattoo for some time but never made efforts to put it in ink. Now I couldn’t find a reason not to do it. After consulting with the artist, we agreed to also lengthen the wings of the butterfly tattoo I got my freshman year in college. After all, I’ve grown since then, right?
Here is the writer’s quill, positioned on my right forearm:
And the butterfly who’s grown longer wings:
This brings the tattoo total to five, and I’m just doing my best to hold back. (So many ideas, all this blank canvas!) Anyway, the remaining amount of the gift certificate is going to Chuck, who’ll get some work on his sleeve.
