I do, of course.
Last December, I went a got a second tattoo. I had this dream earlier this year that I was at a tattoo parlour, looking back over my shoulder into a large mirror, admiring a new tattoo. It was of a golden spiral:
In the dream, I was so happy. It looked great. So when I woke up without it, I was a bit disappointed.
So what did I do? I went and had it tattooed on for real.
Veronique at The Scarlet Ink did such an amazing job. Her ability to make perfect lines was amazing. I had been hesitant to get the tattoo until I saw her portfolio through my brother. I was blown away by her skill.
It was surreal standing in front of the big mirror in her studio, looking over my shoulder just as I had done in the dream. A supreme sense of deja vu.
Yesterday, I had the touch ups done and I’m so excited. It’s perfect.
It’s been awhile since I posted on any sort of regular basis. I feel badly about that, not because I know some of you are reading, but because I do this site mostly for myself and it feels like a let down to go so long without posting. This is the first post of what I hope will be a more regular schedule.
