Tattoo



I can't believe I finally did it! I am tattooed! 

I can't even remember from when I've been dreaming about my tattoo! I think it was before I was 18 years old! And I have always wanted to have the same thing done. This sign is what I always draw when I am stressed, or just talking at the phone. I have all my college books filled with thousands of this sign all together making weird forms, lol...  That's why I wanted to make this sign for me, in my skin. It's my sign and now will be with me forever, even when I won't be able to hold a pen and draw one; I'll have it in my skin!!!!!!!
First, I wanted to make just one, big one. But then I decided I'll make more, just like in my books. And then when I got to the studio the "tattoo man" told me we could do it exactly like the sketch I was showing him... So it's my own design, in my own hand writing! He scanned what I draw for him! Oh God, I was delighted! lol...
It's fun to have it though. It was so easy, painless that I think won't be the last... lol... Maybe the same thing in my right hand... lol...
I made it in a great place here in Tenerife; Santa Cruz Tattoo. Check their site, it's great. And they're so warm, you can feel the good energy there, lots of friends coming to see them, lots of customers, lots of great energy! Lots of art! I can't remember if I ask the boy his name because I was so nervous I just remember he doing it so perfectly!, lol... But if any of you go there I am sure everyone will make great works!
Well, hope you like it! I am so happy with it!

I think it's so much better when it's your own design and is something that has meaning. It looks cool.

I love it! I have a drawing on one of my wrists of a cat chasing its tail that was directly out of my sketch book.I got it with a girlefriend of mine and I couldnt believe she was into my little scribble drawing.I agree about the brows thing too!
