flow & solo
How did you ever find a mandarinquat anyway?! lol
Was your new tattdesign a solo project by you, or a collaboration?
(i get my mandarinquats at central market...i am trying to root some stems and germinate some seeds, but we will see how successful that is.)
i guess my newest tat could be considered a collaboration since you have to count the tattoo artist who inked it, but i designed it all by my solo. i took it in and he made the transfer and started the inking right then and there. in my mind, i want my tattoos to flow and make designsense on my body. i reversed bits and pieces of my first one and made the frame for my second one, so they could be part of each other. my inspiration idea was 'if emily dickinson squirreled away to the inking parlor, what would she pick out of the tattered ledger?' something a little country and a whole lot of rock&roll. (emily, by the way, you still freaking rock.)
i thought i was done, but i think i need another one. tattoos are like lay's potato chips. you can't have just one. i have never been to a spa, but to be on the table having someone work on you must be what dayspas are like, except with a little pain.
