Besides, getting a tattoo for your thirty-fifth birthday is totally a grown-up thing to do, right?
I debated telling ML I wanted to get a Twilight tattoo or a picture of Robert Pattinson's face but I was sort of afraid he would actually buy it and have a fucking stroke or something. So I told him the truth.
I want to get a flower and a honeybee. And not just any flower, either. You see, the New Jersey state flower is a meadow violet and the NJ state insect is a honeybee.
ERMAGAHD WE'RE ALL GONNA FUCKING DIE!!!!
It's gonna be like a secret ninja New Jersey pride tattoo. Plus, I'm scared fucking shitless of bees, so why not? I completely lose my shit when there is a bee nearby and flail and whimper and run around screaming like a banshee so of course I should get a tattoo of one.
My logic doesn't even make sense to me but I'm just going to go with it.
Unfortunately, there is one small problem with my tattoo plan. I don't draw. My artwork looks like an aging poodle doodled it. Sure, I can grab a few pictures and take it down to the tattoo shop and all that jazz, but I like to see the completed image before I go down there. That way, I can carry it around and stare at it once a day to make sure I actually want it tattooed on my skin. Especially because I want a very specific (I think) style to this tattoo.
I want it to look like a woodcut drawing. Or something kind of like that.
Style choice subject to change every fifteen minutes...
So, my fellow inked (or not inked!!) Twitards - how do you go about planning a tattoo (even if it's a hypothetical one)? What would you get tattooed and where?
Oh, and anyone a good woodcut artist?
