Show and tell - my new tattoo!!

Show and tell time!

I have wanted a flower on my shoulder for a long time. Not for any reason or symbolism, I have just always liked the idea. I have also a great love for all things Tim Burton. It started with the dark whimsy of Beetlejuice way back when... So I wanted to somehow mesh the 2 together and here it is! I LOVE it!!!







Here's another pic mid-tattoo...





I highly recommend Jose' from Action Tattoo in Auburn, WA. He was thorough, listened to what I wanted, and gave me a beautiful piece of artwork!!

*AND it now hurts like a bitch, but that's only temporary....

Awesome. My husband has 2 tattoos. I have thought about getting one for a long time. I have to find something I really like first.

I could never get one, i am so scared of needles, and yes even after thousands of injections!!! I dig people who get em though.

First thing I did this morning was to check FB to see if you had posted any more pics. LOL! Glad you like it and hope it won't hurt for too long.

Awesome! I have always wanted to get a tattoo but can never decide what I want. Plus the "hurting like a bitch" part kinda had hindered me too... :)

Coco - ok, well it's not THAT bad... it's like a sunburn. Not that bad!!!! Don't be scared!!
