Throwback to last week’s tattoo

I’m just now able to sit comfortably and wear regular clothes. I’ve felt like a Duggar girl all week wearing dresses, but pants and shorts don’t wear well with an open wound on my backside. The magnolia bloom is situated on my lower left back/upper left cheek (ahem) and runs perfectly along my waistline. So yeah, no tight clothing in that area this past week.

Every time I see it I feel a rush of delight. It’s beautiful on its own but what it represents makes it even more special. I’ll take a proper picture once it’s healed. I’m that itchy, scabby phase, so we’re nearly there.

And then I’ll do it all over again in August. 

Throwback to my last tattoo

It’s been three years since my last tattoo, so that tells me it’s time for another. (Tomorrow!)

Integrity Tattoo

The quill was an obvious choice – a nod to my passion, imprinted on my writing arm. In hindsight, I wish it was bigger, but that means I have space for other things.
