Icarus Undying



Getting tattooed is never fun but I had a wonderful experience today. I spent three hours getting this, (another potentially NSFW topless photo) a concept I've been considering for years*. As you can see, the piece is not quite done. Patrick and I got a late start and I had to take a few breaks so we ultimately ran into his next appointment. I am disappointed that I have to wait another month to finish but I'm proud that I wasn't the one who called it quits. It will be worth the wait.

This hurt like all hell but I felt as comfortable as one can be. Patrick was extremely professional and my girlfriend (stay tuned...) Amanda stopped by. Yes, she held my hand.

*Huge thank you to Walker for helping me come up with the specific imagery.

Just to let you know that looks totally badass. It looks better than the image i had in my head when we first talked about this. Congrats, I'm so glad your scrape didn't postpone this. I'll see you in a week or so. And btw your chest is totally SFW, just maybe not SFPICWMM (safe for public internet cafes with Morrocan men) ;-)

Congrats! It already looks great, and I can't wait to see the finished product!

btw did I mention that you look totally badass and ripped? Did you do some pushups and situps before taking that pick? You're going to have to help me drop a few pounds when I get back. I'm getting a little pudgy over here eating nothing but bread and cheese
