Got my second tattoo today. Damn, it hurts like a m***** f*****. I had forgotten (like a woman forgetting labor pains, I suppose). It makes me sad that I missed sharing my friend Stacey's experience (I forget why now -- all I remember was that it was a stupid reason). Having a friend with you makes it go much better. :( Sorry, Stacey!
Coincidentally, Stacey gave me a really fun t-shirt today. The front says, "Careful, or you'll end up in my novel." Heh. :) Thanks so much!
Later: Per matriarchal request, a photo of the new artwork. I'm showing it upside down because that is how it appears to me. My first tattoo is on the right-hand side. The first one was "upside down," because it was for me. This one (and the next one) are more about me and the outside world, so they will be "right side up." Also, I thought it would be cool if they switched orientation.
