My arm hurts...

But for a really good reason! I got a call yesterday afternoon that there was a cancellation or something at the tattoo shop and on I went! We did "Phase 1" yesterday - just mom's portrait on my arm and the next part will be adding angel wings behind her and probably something underneath. I have to figure out what I want it to say. I don't really want to put "mom" or "mother" but it can't be long and needs to be simple... decisions, decisions...

I got there at about 3pm, by 4pm he started working on getting the image the size he wanted, then tracing it out, and a little after 5pm he started tattooing. We didn't finish 'til 9:30pm! It was a LONG afternoon! There were a couple breaks in there of course but he probably worked on me for 3 1/2 - 4 hours and man my arm was feeling it that last hour before he finished. It was pretty tender by then. I am really happy with it and don't think the picture does it justice - her eyes are really stunning in person. Of course I took the picture last night when I got home, so it's still very fresh, red, puffy and darker than it will look when it's healed. This is the photo we used and the tattoo:


I am really happy with it. He was very thorough and really took his time and I think he did a great job. I can't wait to get to go back and see what he has in mind for the background! I had a lot of "I miss my mommy" moments though yesterday throughout the afternoon with lots of time to think about her... I am glad I get to go see my brother and sister and her family in just another week and get to share this with them. I hope they like it at least almost as much as I do... :)
