new tattoo?

so you have probably seen the small, faded, purple flower tattoo on my middle finger on my right hand in some of my ring photos.

well, i got it when i was 16 years old, and not only is it not very cool, it is very faded and i do not love it any more. so, i have been working on some design ideas to enhance it. this is my current favorite:

i met with nic at your flesh tattoo in durango on friday to discuss possibilities. i am very excited about this; please tell me what you think!

The design is very much in keeping with the work you have been creating, very pretty.

My only advise would be to draw a similar design on your hand with an ink pen and just walk around with it there for a while where you can see it and get a feel for its size and shape. I don't generally give advise, and I know it sounds silly, but I have a tattoo on my shoulder, and I wish I had gotten it a little lower (too late now).

you are so right. i am actually hoping to meet with the guy again on tuesday, to do some sketches on my skin. i will just leave it on there for a while and see how it feels. i am definitely not rushing in to anything!

Looks great, but painful. A nice way to encorporate your ring tattoo.
