I bopped down 6th avenue after work last night and had this text tattoo inked by Daniel at Ink City Tattoo, Decatur AL. lol..I felt a touch disloyal not going to Blue Rose, but had decided to get a small piece from a local shop since I'm living in Decatur now.(For big creative work, Greg Ross remains my artist of choice!) btw, Ink City is where Greg used to work before he opened his own shop in Huntsville, and he still does tats for/on several of the artists there.
I had been looking at my steampunk portrait and noticed the curve of blank space next to the bee at the crook of my elbow. Bingo. :) Its similar to the lowercase h on my hand, but is an original font. I wanted the writing to fit the words, designed to look decorative as well as a little off kilter. fyi: as inked, the letter "r" is altered just a bit from the style as written here, so they won't be as easily misread as being the letter "v".
B.'s most frequent term of endearment is to call me his "pretty girl", but sometimes he also (just as affectionately) refers to me as a "pretty crazy girl"-- to which he'll futher tease about if the phrase in use contains a comma or not, as in "pretty, crazy" or just "pretty crazy". :)
I've actually thought about a "crazy" text tattoo before, but it's only B. who has gotten me to accept the "pretty". Now it is a part of me.
