Tattoo Wednesday!

Yay! I got a new tattoo today!!

Gerry and the rest of the gang at Tattoo Zoo have been participating in the Two Dollar Tattoo Project and I wanted to get in on the action! 🙂

The other day Bryan did a sick R2D2 on our friend Ryan (Hi Ryan) and Gerry did a tiny ship in a bottle on Nova (Hi Nova) and Colin did the scene from the Empire Strikes Back with the AT-AT walkers on Bryan (Hi Bryan). Oh man it’s so sick! I’ll post the link to the photos once they’re up on the blog.

In a nutshell they have to do a tiny tattoo no bigger then a toonie (about the size of a silver dollar) and you can only tattoo with a single needle. For those of you tattoo virgins – single needle tattoo’s are technically very demanding and are an “old timey” way of tattooing that isn’t used very often anymore.

Gerry sent me a text this morning of the drawing he did for me with the line “Will you be my Mommy” under it. Ha! Look at how cute the drawing is!! How could I say no?

I realized as Gerry was tattooing me that it’s been a YEAR since my last tattoo (how did that happen?). A YEAR? Really?

My last tattoo was the matching “13th wedding anniversary” tattoos Gerry and I gave each other on our anniversary. Wow. A year? I’m still kind of dumbfounded. Time flies. 🙂

Here’s my puffer fish as just an outline alongside Gerry (for reference so you understand how small it is).

Here he is … all coloured and cute as pie!! I’ll take a better photo once he’s healed … I think I’ll name him Kaanapali! 🙂

Here is a photo we took as I am passing the $2 to Gerry as proof of compliance with the set parameters of the Two Dollar tattoo project.  🙂

It was a fun day. I wish all my tattoos were that easy!

  1. awesome, it gonna be so hard to do such a small tattoo, and do it so good, do you use that practice skin, you can practice your skill with it, anyway, good job, love it!

  2. Hey, thanks for the link! Great tattoo and story! I will have more from the Zoo crew up on the site soon. Still sorting out moving from blogger to wordpress so this has delayed updates some. Thanks for spreading the good word!

    I love teeny, tiny tattoos. Anil Gupta does sick reproductions of famous works of art that are teeny tiny.
