Okay! So yesterday was my much anticipated tattoo appointment that I was completely anxious about as a result of a horrible dream a couple of weeks ago. After I booked the appointment months ago, I dreamt that I fell asleep whilst being tattooed (because that is completely likely to happen!) and woke up with a horrific scene on my arm! I was a bit nervous about this tattoo because I sent a picture to Chris (who also tattooed my babushka) and asked him to incorporate a banner and something in the background to tie the two elements together. The first draft had waves rather than roses and I had a pretty strong negative reaction to it, so he changed it to some roses. The original illustration is by Angelique Houtkamp. When I was thinking about what I wanted to get for my next tattoo I had a picture in my head of an old fashioned looking lady with hair topped upon her head with a hair ship and banner "loose lips sink ships", which is one of my favourite sayings. I'm really pleased with how it turned out and I especially love the small touches of teal.
My whole day was quite pleasant, the weather on the coast was nice enough considering it has been raining for the past two weeks. Luke & I spent a little bit of time together before we went about our days. I got to catch up with my lovely friend Joshua before my appointment and indulged in some Grill'd, the most amazing burger chain ever. There aren't any stores on the coast which is disappointing so it was pretty exciting to have a Garden Goodness for the first time in almost two years! And most importantly, I got to wear my new Mink Pink dress that I bought during the week.
When my tattoo heals I'll take some neater photos & I promise they won't have those really lovely sparkles that the first picture has. Before I dropped Luke to work he kindly photographed my outfit, only my camera was on the sparkle setting for the one photo that he was able to get my whole outfit in!
