Today I got a new tattoo! I've been planning to add to my collection for a few months but wanted to make sure I was happy with the design and placement. I design all my tattoos myself , and my lovely friend and tattoo artist, Beany inks them up for me. She does all the creative stuff with the colours and shading, so they are always a collaborative piece :) Although I don't much care for the pain aspect of getting tattooed (ouch!) I like being tattooed by Beany as we have a cuppa, and a really good chat while she works on me. Its nice to feel really relaxed and comfortable with your artist too. So, here it is....
Like with all my tattoos - they don't really 'mean' anything. Its just a collection of the things that I like - I love old school tattoos - hence the love letters, horseshoe and flowers, and although I'm not religious, I love sacred hearts so I wanted one of those in there too, so I designed this piece with all that in mind.
I also did the design to slot in around my other work and kept the colours the same so it all ties in!
And here it is with my other work - do you like my new spotty shower curtain? ;)
