whoah, hi internet!

i've had a busy week or whatever. hot damn. maybe i'll tell you some stories later! i have lots of them. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

in the meantime, look what i did yesterday! i got a tattoo!


[personal profile] fairestcat (who was also lovely enough to take photos and upload them to her flickr, THANKS CAT)* came with me to new moon tattoo, where the amazing and wonderful milena had a design all ready for me. well, mostly ready. well, okay, she had a rough sketch and a bunch of reference printouts. basically she had an outline all traced and ready to apply, but for shading and detail she freehanded it with extensive reference to some b&w beretta photos. i was a little nervous, but mostly i just thought this approach was TOTALLY THE SHIT. it meant she got to go with what inspired her in the moment, and stuff, and bounce ideas off me, and whatever it was fucking awesome. AND IT TURNED OUT LIKE THIS:

tattoo 4
no flash, gives you a good idea of the colors under normal light. i think my ass looks weird in this photo. WHATEVER.

tattoo 3
this is a good shot, with flash, which makes the colors pop more. SHIT, THE COLORS. i fucking love milena's style, it works so well with this, and her colorwork is fucking outstanding. jfc. (also, how many times to you get to shoot the shit with your tattoo artist about whipping out the slime green, or barfy brown? seriously. best ever.)

tattoo 2
this gives you an idea of how it looks with my awesome sidepiece. fuck yeahhhhhhh~

there's one more picture in the flickr set, if you want to click through to see more of my scantily-clad derriere. but this is a fairly good representation! really, the fourth pic is just more of the same.

let me just tell you, that was an awkward post to assemble while sitting on a packed greyhound bus with a bunch of strangers. MY ASS LET ME SHOW YOU IT.

*also, inking over old scar tissue hurts like a bitch. good thing [personal profile] fairestcat is okay with getting her fingers pulverized. oops! THANKS CAT. ♥

Truly awesome image.

Can't get the picture of somebody frisking you, asking "Are you carrying" and you get this wacky smile on your face. 0.o
