new job, new tattoo

My new job is awesome in about 41 ways. It’s for a website I <3, it’s helping the library world become better, and I get to work from home.

I’ve always be just a little hesitant to get tattoos that are easily seen, and thus far have been able to avoid showing them whenever I want. To be fair, I don’t think it would have been a problem at the public library I worked at – the director is pretty cool, and the patrons certainly enjoyed my pink hair, and I’ve seen more than one back tat on a mom.

But, now that my job involves even less formal attire, I REALLY WANT A TATTOO LIKE THIS.

I just think it’s the most gorgeous thing I’ve ever seen.

    The only thing I would be hesitant about is getting an inside-of-the-forearm tattoo. Painful! But that tat is gorgeous. One of these days I’ll have enough spare change to get a second tattoo. Maybe it will be something crafty…

    HA. I know pain. Pain and I are friends, and we skip around the neighborhood together.

    Ok, that was a bit of bravada, but my ankle tattoo was incredibly painful, and I assume there’s more flesh and less tendons and bone on the arm. Maybe not.

    What if I got it on my deltoid? HOT!

    Beautiful tattoo. Of course I won’t allow myself to consider getting a third until I get the one on my foot touched up, and considering how much that HURT the first time…
    I must show that picture to my knitting group here in London. One day I must give you the down-lo on this group, suffice for now to say that they were terrified of me and my noisy American ways (not to mention the chunky brightly colored yarns).

    That is quite possibly the coolest tattoo I have ever seen, other than the one on your back, of course.

    I’m thinking about getting one (finally) too, but I haven’t found one that I really, really, really want yet.

    Andy, don’t you have a garden*gnome on the inside of your arm? 😛
