@SeeSea ...one of the most unique monmon cats I've seen yet! love it, thanks for sharing :)

Thanks! I am madly in love with it and get this heart-smile whenever I look at it.

@SeeSea I saw that on IG and absolutely loved the all the elements of it. The shrimp sushi is awesome.

Thank you! Yes - I love that her fuzzy white belly is the rice. I was almost certain that he would use a shrimp for her orange coloration - it was such a match.

@SeeSea That is spectacular and such a wonderful tribute.

Thanks - yes, he did a wonderful job. I had described to Molly how sweet my kitty was, and Tomo put her in a halo. Wow.

It's so sweet and adorable and beautiful, congratulations!!!

Thanks! I am glad it finally happened. I had a screen shot of your Monmon and of you and furry Tomo on my phone but I forgot to show him! Rats.

@SeeSea I took arnica and calendula homeopathics, which helped a lot, this past go-round! Calendula is specific for skin problems/scabs/rashes/scrapes/etc, so it makes sense that it would be so helpful with a tattoo. Can't wait to see it healed!

Got this Shishi Lion from Alix Ge at the London convention yesterday (pic nicked from her instagram):

When I arrived, Alix was still drawing. She told me we couldn't put the tattoo on the side of my thigh like I had asked for because for that I would have to lie down and she only had a chair. Well, alright then. When I came back from a short tour around the convention she had obviously done another drawing which was much bigger than the first. She thought the animal had to be rather large to be nice, good with me. But she didn't think we could fit peonies as well, would I be happy with cherry blossoms instead...? Bummer...what? Noooo...! Oh well, so we agreed to put on the lion stencil and see then. Stencil went on, peonies were added freehand. No problem, all fitted on there nicely....but...that was gonna be a looong session. If I was a strong woman, she asked. Ermmmmm, well, I bl**dy hoped so...what else could I say? She looked at me particularly sceptical after she found out it was only my second tattoo....

Obviously, we made it, yippie!!!

Six hours on a folding chair with two breaks. Even though I got some odd looks and remarks for running around with a pillow under my arm, I was well glad I had brought it because it made the chair way more comfortable! Apart from that, getting tattooed at the convention was actually surprisingly good as there was so much to watch and get distracted by. I could openly stare at all the tattoos walking by and quite a few people gave me encouraging smiles and words. That was really cool.

Alix is super lovely and I kinda felt a little bad for her having to sit on her small suitcase for hours. Towards the end she told me that she wouldn't be able to do what I did and that she'd never get a tattoo that takes more than one hour herself. I doubt that's actually true, but it was a sweet thing to say anyway.

Suffice to say I'm super chuffed but also glad it's over!

And this morning my 3 1/2 year old greeted me excitedly with "Mummy, I have a tattoo, too!". Turns out the entire family has tattoos now, some of them of the temporary type, some rather not ;-)

Only your second tattoo? Sorry, I think I must have confused you with another poster over on the convention thread! :o Regardless, that is jaw-droppingly beautiful and you are a badass for finishing it.

Lol, no worries, I'm working on it, even though slowly ;-)

Awesome weekend at the London Convention. There were some awesome tattoos walking around and being created, not least on some LSTers. Congratulations to everyone that got some work. Everything I have seen so far looks great. I didn't get anything big or dramatic this weekend. Just this little guy by Len Leye at Clan of Tusk in Belgium. Really nice guy and fun time getting tattooed. It you don't know his work then check out his instagram.

Dan Higgs black heart done by Josh Brown (Josh changed the color scheme some). Forgive the wonky photos; I realized this wasn't the easiest spot to photograph.

Inexplicably one of my favorite flash designs, and this is a real nice version of it.

Thanks. I'd been eyeballing pretty every time I go to James River Tattoo. I figured who better to do it than Josh considering he has quite a few tattoos from Higgs.

Been ages since I posted on this forum, don't really know why since I have been lurking every now and then. Guess i've been more into real life outside world thingies and started university again.

Anyway a friend of mine put this on my leg. Just to get some panties in a twist: this was not done in a shop, but in a bedroom.

edit: It's about 2 months healed
