Another journey begins

Today I got my 2nd tattoo, I wanted a simple black band, no adornment, nothing tribal, or from another culture…
I wanted something simple and plain.  Turns out simple isn’t easy, or cheap…

When it was finished, I loved it immediately, and as I was going home I thought about what more I could do with it.  So, the plan now is more bands in different widths above and below the current band.  When those are done, I’ll consider adding something else in-between the bands.

And so I begin…

    Elegant. The mother in me wants me to urge you to not get carried away. Remember, old people with tatoos! Ugggh.

      Heh, I've had a few friends go far more 'mother' than that. Finger wagging, “You didn't get my approval” etc.

      If I end up an old person covered in tattoos, so be it. I love this band, and I know exactly where I'm taking it from here. It's going to be a very large piece of work when I'm done, and be on more than just my arm.

      Stay tuned…

        OK, but please go to a retirement home/rest home somewhere close and look at
        old guys with tatoos–old sailors are always good to ask to see. Well, maybe
        a VA home for sailors, then.

        I am NOT telling/urging/begging you not to do it. Just look.

        I understand the need to make the statement. (In fact, the one band so far
        is quite striking.) I don't want you to someday regret it. God knows there
        is plenty else in one's life to regret (I am the queen, here).

        Take care,
        maesz
