The unveiling...

Sorry for the wait, but it's been a busy day.

First things first. Yes, it hurt. Anyone who tells you that tattoos do not hurt is a liar. They do. For gosh sakes it's a needles (or several) piercing your skin repeatedly.

It wasn't unbearable but my right shoulder is tender as hell now. And we have darts tomorrow. It should be interesting to say the least.

Okay here it is...drumroll please...

Errr...wait that's not me or my ink. Although I wouldn't be disappointed if that were my waist.

Do you guys remember the episode of Friends where Phoebe got a tattoo?

PHOEBE: Wanna see mine, wanna see mine?


RACHEL: What? You didn't get one.

PHOEBE: OK, well then what is this?

RICHARD: What're we looking at? That blue freckle?

PHOEBE: OK, that's my tattoo.

RACHEL: That is not a tattoo, that is a nothing. I finally got her back in the chair, bairly touched her with a needle, she jumped up screaming, and that was it.

PHOEBE: OK, hi. For your information this is exactly what I wanted. This is a tattoo of the earth as seen from a great distance. It's the way my mother sees me from heaven.

RACHEL: Oh, what a load of crap. That is a dot. Your mother is up in heaven going, 'Where the hell is my lily, you wuss?'

That was the funniest show! ~sigh~

What? Oh that's right I still haven't presented my newest addition.


Oh I know, I know you don't get it. But as a true, hardcore A7X fan it's something I wanted to do.

Their "logo" is a deathbat.

And one of their best songs is Seize the Day so I combined the two with a few girly touches added a sprinkle of Troy's magic and VOILA!

Here's a few more pictures of my torture journey at the tattoo studio.

I hope I didn't detour anyone from getting one but I'm keeping it real. It is not done with Qtips.

If it were completely painless what would you get? And why?

WOW. How long did that take to do? I know it will be painful. And I still want one. I just have no idea as to what it would be. If I knew that, I'd get one.

And I've never seen Friends. But I love the blue dot. That is hilarious!

LMAO - I saw that Friends show - it was funny! I like your new tattoo. I'd be way too afraid of the pain to get one myself.

But if it wasn't painful (and not permanent - something about it being permanent on skin hmm)... probably would be a rose. I'm more of a girly girl. Hmm, a Unicorn? Lol. Greg could have a fit if I did that! Maybe an angel. I know, how boring the things that I pick..

Wa-hooo! Sweet tat!!

I have wanted a tatoo since 7th grade (same tatoo even), but never could actually get myself to go through with it. I even had an appointment once when I was 19 or 20, but I cancelled it.

Who knows if I'll ever get one?? Last year, I wanted to get it done--baaad--but I was nursing. Now that I can get it, mmmmmmm, I don't know.

p.s. I love that episode!!

The question for me would have to be FREE and painless. The pain I can handle. It's my pocketbook that can't. (Do people still say pocketbook?) My answer would be, I would finish my arm tat of my babies, figure out how I want to sleeve the rest of my forearm and add a waterfall to my left calf tattoo.

You watchin sons of anarchy?

P.S. Glad you found me. Now I've found you. We've found each other. Where am I?

I want one. SO. BADLY!!!

And I want your step-brother to do it. For real. Is he anywhere near you? Me? Let's discuss.

Yours is awesome...truly. It makes me want mine even more.

I talked about getting a tatoo on my blog a few weeks ago. I've thought about getting one for years but still working up the nerve, and definitely nothing as cool as yours! I love it!
