Continuing The Good Work
As a fun look at things of then to things of now, I hunted down the images from the last time I had a tattoo session back in September of 2012 and some cell phone shots my boyfriend, +Robert Hacker, took for me at this most recent session on May 10th, 2014 yesterday so I could compare.
It seems like a life time ago and yet it also feels like only yesterday (figuratively speaking) that I started this very special conceptual piece on my back that will one day slide down my half sleeve.
After this last session, I will only have some color retouching (fish and other odds and ends) and the background left before we start the long journey of the bicep and shoulder.
I am looking forward to this. Andy, my tattoo guy, is awesome and the fact that he has hybridized the world of tattoo artistry with an art gallery makes it so much sweeter too.
I sometimes feel that my life could be road mapped on my canvas, but the stories they tell need me to decrypt the symbolism behind each one; when someone asks what one of them means, I get to tell a story about my life and I think that is pretty cool.
One day, all the chapters will be there to see and that is exciting as well!
Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms and mom-to-be’s out there and I hope everyone enjoys this and the rest of this wonderful Sunday! ♥
