surprise!



Kim from college turns out to be very good at tattoos... I'm going to let her do a bigger one eventually. She did this one as she needs practice, and everyone else at college who wants a tattoo didn't want to go first. I trusted her, and I'm pleased I did. she had all the sterilisation stuff, disposable needles, and a very cute kitten.

It's a scarab i got as a surprise for ian - he wanted me to get one near the butterfly, and i didn't want one, so i got one on my ankle. I drew the design from a black and white sketch, and coloured it. the white bit isn't just my skin, it's actually white, it's the shiny bit. It means protection - i think redfi gave me the idea?

I should point out that this isn't my birthday present from Ian - that is going to be on my upper arm and done by PP again when the studio is sorted. This was a little treat for myself cause it was a friend doing it, and she needed a bit of cash for her chest tattoo
