A new tattoo...

So wednesday I got my second tattoo (the first one I got 10 years ago when I was 18). I always thought I'd have several tattoos by now, but somehow didn't get around to getting anymore. So no time like the present...

Here's a closeup of what it looks like:


And here is a photo to show where it is:


It's healing up nicely and should look better in a week or two. I love the decorative quality of tattoos. I was originally planning on getting one on my left forearm but figured with the wedding this year that I might regret having it show up in the photos. So I'll get that one next year.

And here is some knitting to show as well. I printed out the clapotis pattern in september of 04 (the date was on the printout) and finally decided to make it (just like everyone else ;). The pattern is really easy to follow and is turning out quite nicely. I'm using some more of the merino that I got in november. It's yummy!



Happy new year!

Cool tattoo! I've always toyed with getting one, but am afraid of the pain.

Nice tattoo...It should heal nicely. Can't wait to see the Clapotis when it's done!
