Other things I found interesting
I will post here random musings, pictures or ideas I find interesting. There's no way of knowing what might tickle my interest, but this area helps fill in all the other areas of life not categorized elsewhere.
I ended up getting my tattoo the day before we flew out to Auckland. It's a tribute to my Colorado home--a bunch of columbines in a grouping. I had it done by Nick McQueen at Summit Tattoo in Castle Rock: he's done 2 of my tattoos and one of my husbands and I'd recommend him to anyone.
The pics here are right after he finished--he was a rock star and did the whole thing in one sitting. Took roughly 6 hours (not including breaks). I was pretty sensitive in the last hour or so (when he went back over spots to touch up), but overall it went really well. I'm still impressed by how awesome Nick is at drawing on the fly--he free-handed all of this just from looking at a computer generated print out. I love it and it's healing well--the humidity has been awesome for recovery :) Thank you Nick!!!
