The first tattoo I got was about 14 years ago and it is a sun on my ankle. There is a story behind this tattoo but I won't get in to it right now. It still looks amazing to me after so long and I love it.
My second tattoo was a cat I had done on my right shoulder. It is a tribute to my two black beauties whom I got when I moved in to my very first apartment by myself (no roommate) 12 years ago and they were just wee babies of 3 months.
They have been my constant companions and filled many lonely nights when I was home alone with chatter and snuggles - I love them.
They are characters beyond characters - at least to me.
My cat tattoo started to fade and look not as pretty so I decided to revive it this summer.
I wanted to do this before our wee little dude comes home because it takes some care afterwards and it is better now sans kids.
Here is my tattoo revival in photos:
So there you have it!
I love it!!! He did the shading behind the cat freehand and I didn't get to see it until was done and I was blown away!
Amazing! Thanks to Pat at Rites of Passage!!!
Also, I just have to point out LOOK HOW LONG MY HAIR IS!!!
I have had short hair pretty much all my life and this is very long for me. I decided to grow it out so that I wouldn't have to blow dry it every day when we have a toddler running around from the minute he gets up to the minute he goes to bed. This way I will be able to throw it up in a pony tail or whatever.
I have literally been avoiding cameras because I didn't want to be "Oh no, I hate my hair I better cut it short again" but I saw these photos and I was all "Who is that gal with the long hair!?"
It's me - hee!
P.S. I know it probably doesn't seem long to most but trust me this is long for me!
P.P.S. I discovered a flat iron is a girl's best friend when growing out your hair!
