yesterday I finally got a tattoo, I've wanted for a looonnngggg time....my very own dragon
last year I turned 40 and refused to do anything to acknowledge that event...this year, J convinced me that I should celebrate this year and last year's birthday by getting tattooed....I agreed....
so a few weeks ago around my birthday (which is soo not the point of this post :)) I stopped at a shop on the way home from picking up my new glasses...I had a really weird experience there and had no intention of returning, but I googled them when I got home and found this artist instead, Phipps
who is currently at this shop in Columbia, Animated Canvas
we met, we talked...I took him a sketch a few days later
a few more days later and he had turned my general idea into this
we set it up an appointment and here it is....some of the process and the end result...
I don't know why it took me so long to get a tattoo of one of my favorite things EVER, but obviously there was a reason for waiting and I got to work with a really talented artist who I am dying to have work on me again.....soon, LOL
if anyone gets here by googling tattoo shops in Columbia, SC - definitely check these guys out...excellent experience all the way around...
