inked in the name of love

After months and months of talking about it - I finally did it! I went to
Pretty in Ink Tattoo where the owner Nick was kind enough to sketch out a beautiful image of what I wanted and did an excellent job executing it as well. I was a little freaked out about how much it would hurt but when I asked Nick if it would hurt more than giving birth to twins he promptly replied, no! And you know what? It totally didn't! I embraced it as a kind of meditative experience as I lay down, eyes closed, thinking of my beautiful blessed boys, listening to the hum of the machine and country radio. It was perfect.

I'm already pondering what my next one will be......

*The background is still in process - in two weeks I go back to get the background stars a little more defined.


I would love to hear from you!
