My Tattoo Story
This was a tattoo specially designed by my tattoo artist. I brought in a picture of a butterfly with some swirls behind it and I wanted to add my children’s initials on the butterfly and put an infinity symbol on it for my husband. My tattoo artist came up with the idea to use my children’s initials as the swirls behind the butterfly (A,D, & E) and there is an infinity symbol sideways behind the butterfly and between the initials. Also the butterfly’s body is an infinity symbol. She free-handed the entire design. It’s my first- and only (…well maybe only;)) tattoo. It has great meaning to me – and it’s pretty
When and Where
I had it done at the Blackbird Tattoo and Gallery in Nashville, TN by Shannon Wages – who is super talented. I had it done last October 2011.
It was cool. I was a little nervous but one of my best friend’s went with me. It didn’t hurt near as much as I thought it would – was more like annoying than hurtful. It took a while but there was a lot of detail – I think I was there for 2 hours at least. Overall it was a good experience. Shannon made me feel very comfortable.
I kind of want another one but haven’t found anything I want to commit the rest of my life to yet:) Anything I put on my body needs to have some significance. I’m considering a dragon since I’m a dragon baby (Chinese Astrology) but haven’t found one I really like yet.top
