In case any of you haven’t seen it yet, I got my new tattoo last night. It came out better than I could have imagined; if you’re in the northwest Ohio region, I really recommend Monk at Infinite Art. Bizarrely reasonable rates, plus he worked really fast, was a good conversationalist, listened to good music (Pixies! Depeche Mode!), and seriously, just LOOK AT IT. There was also a painting on the wall that he had done of a heron or a crane that looked really good so I may, sometime, just go ask him to make something up for me.
Anyway, here it is; it’s based on a drawing by J.R.R. Tolkien. A lot of people who have seen it have said it’s exactly perfect for me, and I agree with them. When I found the original drawing I kind of went “well, that’s precisely what I was looking for.” I’m glad that people would associate something so pretty with li’l old me, to be honest. This is on the inside of my right forearm.
