T minus 7 days to my consult with Horitomo.  Counting the days is getting me through my midterms.

That's awesome! Horitomo does some killer stuff. Is he super booked out?

Horitomo had at the time I booked him an 18 month wait time for consultation.

Met Horitomo, I had a list of things I thought I might want and I ended up with only kind of getting something on that list.  Definitely a MonMonCat, definitely going to be my favorite tattoo, definitely a Nekomata with Kitsune inside.  I had this stupid kid in a candy store smile on my face the whole time I was watching the sketch form.  Then I had to take a picture with my undies at my ankles, I didn't smile as much at that, or when I had to hand over my deposit.  I will be back on the west coast in ~3 months and I'm so excited.

On Sept 14th I have 5 hours booked to start my second sleeve. I am an old school hip hop head so its going to be themed around that. Problem is that its less than 2 weeks to go and I don't have a plan. If I don't come up with some thing soon I may have to reschedule. I would love some suggestions... I grew up on and never grew out of 80"s and early 90's hip hop. RUN DMC, Beastie Boys, EPMD, Rakim, etc... Anyone have some artistic ideas for me?

So, when I got done with that piece on my ribs Tuesday I walked out of the shop thinking "That was intense, that should do me for a while"  But then I woke up the next day thinking "That was a pretty awesome looking mace they had drawn up hanging on the wall. I wonder if they are just waiting for someone to get that?" 

Turns out they had just put that on someone but I was kinda surprised that after the most painful session I have had I was ready to jump back in before it had even scabbed up. 

I feel like I'm about to go on a run of a bunch of tattoos in really short order.

@Boiled Dove This! I remember calling my husband as I left the shop after having my right ribs done (four hours). I told him to remind me of that moment if I EVER said that I was doing my left ribs. Well, that lasted about 48 hours until I was planning to get the left side done. :) Congrats! Enjoy your bender!

    • I like the Daruma below the kneecap. Eyes[edit]   A daruma doll with one eye filled in for wishing "The eyes of Daruma are often blank when sold. Monte A. Greer, author of Daruma Eyes, described the "oversized symmetrical round blank white eyes" as a means to keep track of goals or big tasks and motivate them to work to the finish. The recipient of the doll fills in one eye upon setting the goal, then the other upon fulfilling it. In this way, every time they see the one-eyed Daruma, they recall the goal. One explanation how this custom started says that in order to motivate Daruma-san to grant your wish, you promise to give him full sight once the goal is accomplished. This practice might also have something to do with the "enlightenment", the ideal attainment of Buddhism. This custom has led to a phrase in Japanese translated as "Both Eyes Open". Referring to "opening" the second eye, it expresses the realization of a goal. Traditionally, the Daruma was purchased as a household, and that only the head of the household would paint in the eyes." - Wikipedia
    • no such thing as a perfect tattoo...and tattoos that people think are 'perfect' generally suck! your tattoo could be better...and it will be better in 10 years after it's been lived in for several years ;) you did good. don't overthink it. get more tattoos.
    • No, I have never felt this way. In so many ways, its not even your tattoo and your need for perfection is probably going to just stress out your artist and result in a worse tattoo.  Plus, one day you will be dead and this thing wont even exist anymore. Just enjoy it while you can!
