Tattoo, second stage.
So, now that I’ve tested out my remarkable wimpiness against the process of getting a tiny tattoo, I’m ready to launch out on something a bit more serious. I gave the bloke at the studio my picture of the Bewcastle Cross
and asked him to turn it into a design that could actually be tattooed on. While I was asking for the impossible, I also mentioned that I would like it to go around the cross on my shoulder. He measured how much space there was on my arm and came up with this:
which I think is brilliant. I’m pretty certain that no one else in the world will have one like this 🙂 So now it’s just a matter of saving up for it. No one told me that the major sacrifice involved in getting a tattoo would be financial. But I think I can justify the outlay to myself if have it for my birthday. (Which happens to be less than a month away.)
