Meet my OTHER new friend!!

A little bit before leaving for our Washington Christmas trip, I got tattooed! It's not finished yet, I'm going back in really soon to get the old flowers redone to match the style a little better and finish a background/frame. But I thought I would share my progress as we go along! I had been thinking and thinking for most of the year about what I wanted to get. Well when I came across this Etsy shop, I knew right away that one of those illustrations would be on my arm forever. Eventually, this guy spoke to me...just look at those eyes and you try and say no. I am now a lifelong fan of Berkley Illustration.

For the life of me, a picture would just not turn out no matter how hard we tried. Tattoos usually look BETTER in pictures! Oh well, these will just have to do for now.


Oh, you should also know that Patrick named my new tattoo while he was being created. George, George Cooney.

My fear of needles verges on a very serious phobia, just ask anyone who has ever had the misfortune of giving me a shot. So I HATE needles and getting tattooed, its terrible but I've got plans for a lot more. I'm an idiot.



I would like to take a moment to ask all of you lovely, lovely (and extremely appreciated and cherished) readers... what would you like to see more of on this blog? I would like this place to be more well rounded- more cooking, crafts, DIY, fashion, etc. So I thought I'd ask what you'd like to see in the near future!

  8. I've gotta agree with Lotta. More tattoo shots! You have an interesting life, what with your crafts and goats. I would suggest just keeping it true to yourself and what interests you. :)

  15. I have the same oxymoronic problem with tattoos and needles. I love my tattoo and want more, but the thought of a shot makes me nauseous and sweaty. Yes, we are retarded (but we look so good with ink!).
