NEW TATTOO

I wanted to get another one, but I didn't really know what. And that's not something that you want to fuck up, what with a tattoo being permanent and all. I knew I wanted flowers, or something flowery. As much as I love the tattoos on my left arm, they look a little like prison gang tattoos, and I don't want to be mistaken for a member of the Latin Kings. I mean, that just leads to trouble.

Cherry blossoms are Ted's favorite flower. Every year we go to the Brooklyn Botanical Garden to see the cherry trees in bloom, and one year for his birthday I bought him a cherry tree, which we planted in the garden of our apartment in the city and then had to smuggle out after we sold the place, having failed to mention to the buyers that it wasn't staying.

I started collecting pictures like this:




So I went back to Matt at Tattoo Me and he drew something up. I have to be honest (sorry Matt), I didn't really think he could do it, even after I saw his drawings. I mean, I thought he'd get close enough, but I didn't expect it to be exactly what I was picturing.

I was wrong:


It's really bright, cause it's new, and normally I'd wait until it totally healed to post photos so it would look like it's really going to look, but since Matt already put a photo of it on Facebook (after he swore he wouldn't, but that's a story for another time) I figured what the hell.

I really love it:


The pictures aren't great because it's really hard to take a picture of your right arm when you're right-handed, so Ted had to take them and he kind of sucks at taking pictures. But trust me, it's awesome.

My mother is going to have a fit, though.

You guys are kind!! I really do love it, but the thing about loving your new tattoo is that it only makes you want to get another one. I have no intention of ending up with a sleeve, but I can see how it happens!
