tattoo you

Maybe 10 years ago, I got a Jake tattoo on my wrist. It was kind of a novelty thing, as it read the same upside down as right side up. I was never really happy with the implementation of it and it got a little blurry over time as tattoos are wont to do. So, I've been wanting to cover it up for some time now. It took me quite a while to figure out what to get (I ended up going with a Jake-created design of an American Traditional-style heart with a couple of small flowers). My next hurdle was finding a tattoo artist whose style I liked. And, I found someone this year--Devin at Lemon Bomb (here in Johnstown).

Yesterday was the day. My appointment was supposed to be after work, but she contacted me to see if I could go in earlier, so I took a break from work and went in the afternoon. It took less than an hour, which was good because that was a rather painful place to be tattooed. And, it turned out great--I'm really happy with it!

Originally, I was going to get an anchor tattoo on my wrist, but we just couldn't figure out the placement of it in order to do the cover up. But, I really, really like the anchor Brian drew for me so I'm going to get that on my upper arm in a couple of months. In addition, I have a couple more tattoo ideas so I think 2019 is going to be the Year of the Tattoo for me.
