Hi guys, remember me? I used to blog here before life got crazy and I stopped having time to do anything but hit the pillow on my off hours.

Well, I made a pretty permanent change this week. Completely permanent, in fact: I got a tattoo! It’s my very first tattoo, and I planned it for about two years. The saga was a pretty long and boring one, mostly full of me thinking “ohmygod, do I really want to go through with this?” Somewhere in between all the freakout moments, I contacted the amazingly talented Cynthia of Cynthia Warren Design. She graciously agreed to design my garbled concept of tattoo. I think she did an amazing job, but you can judge for yourself!

So this past week, one of my very best friends was coming to the city to have a consult for her next tattoo. She’s one of those gorgeous, brave people who lets her body be her canvas. I’m not that brave, nor do I trust my fifty-year-old self enough to stay in shape and not fall prey to saggy tattoo syndrome so forearm it is. Anyway, I made an appointment at Deluxe Tattoo with Kit Hall.

She was awesome at putting up with me, the nervous tattoo virgin. I was surprised at how little the actual tattooing hurt, and how quickly it was over. We chatted for about ten minutes and voila, I had a tattoo!

The end result?
