I’m outlined and stuff

Last night, Matthew and I went over to the Ink Spot to see what Erica Flannes had worked up for me. I’d given her concept art, but I am not so much of an artist, so I made sure to include photos, lest I end up with a gigantic vulva instead of an Iris. What she’d worked up made me teary-eyed. I knew she’d come up with something beautiful, but once it’d been realized, I was so emotional and overwrought.

About an hour later, I walked out with the beginnings of my birthday present!!Outline of tattoo - Erica Flannes at Ink Spot - Jackson, MS

(if you click the image, you’ll see a tagged version, which explains the flowers)

It’s done in a medium grey, so it won’t have garish outlines. I think we’re heading somewhere semi-realistic, which should just be AMAZING.

I’m going back next Friday, where we’ll be layin’ down some color!
