    Husband went back to get more work done Wednesday. His artist is now transitioning to doing mainly nipple tattoos in a medical center for breast cancer survivors. He will not be in the shop full time now, it will be more a part time (sounded *very* part time) side job, so my husband was frantic, wondering how he'd get his leg finished and what he would do for continued work in other areas and the artist was like Nah, now I just get to pick and choose what I want to do-and I want to do this, so you'll never have a problem getting in to see me!
    The dragon will go on the calf and he's going to run it over the front of his leg, like his knee and bottom of his thigh there...I burst out laughing when he came home and told me that.

    Oh how my leg has changed in just a few short months.


    I think my next move will be to cap my other knee. Then I need to work on the back sides. I'm too front-heavy.

    Thanks, @iowagirl! I'm really very pleased with how it turned out. I reckon I will do something similar on the other foot. Josh Henderson is pretty much in charge once I tell him my idea. He'll come up with something great to complement the other foot, I bet.   You are a crazy nut to do both feet in one go! My foot is just now starting to look like a foot again. It looked basically like a slab of ham for the first few days. Brutal. Still so happy I did it, though.

    @oboogie that's gorgeous! I did two hours on each of my feet in one visit and F*** me running that was awful. I wasn't aware it was possible for feet to swell like that. It was like a Friday, and then I went back to work Monday. Chasing after preschoolers..hobbling. Not one of my smarter moments. (and lucky me-it was a cover up and it's poking thru---so now guess who gets to do a removal session and get it redone?)
    Are you doing something similar on your other foot?

    Howdy. First post here! Just got a blackwork floral shoulder cap yesterday that I'm thrilled with (my third tattoo). It's flowers from my wedding bouquet (dahlia, roses, calla lilies, succulent, ginkgo leaves, and more), done with dotwork and whip shading (which I'm obsessed with rn). Done by Jacob Kearney at Metamorph Tattoo in Chicago, in about four hours. He was a total pro and I'm in love with this piece!

    If you're having feelings already wondering if you'll regret it, then you need to wait. You've got years to decide for sure what you want, if anything. If you're worried about family or whomever, then until you can be comfortable in your own skin and with yourself, the again, I would wait.
