A couple of weeks ago I went with my stepdaughter to her favorite tattoo shop. Jessica has a full sleeve on her arm and needed to have more work done on it. While I was there I decided to have some work done, too.
You see, I’ve had a tattoo on my ankle for about 7 years now. And, while I liked it, I didn’t love it. I picked it out off the wall in a local tattoo shop and felt like it wasn’t very unique. I also felt like it was a bit too small. You can see it here. So I wanted Jessica’s buddy Fred to update it and make it more unique, more whimsical, just more.
Of course I brought the camera along.
Yes, it hurts.
And it takes great concentration on the part of the tattoo artist.
And yes, I love it!
You want to hear something funny about this? The day we went to get the tattoos I put on Facebook that I was going to get some new ink with my stepdaughter. I told her, “some of my friends are dorks and they will think this means I’m going to Staples to buy a printer cartridge.”
I was right.
You know who you are.
