I knew I wanted butterflies, but I wasn't exactly sure of the design. Another lady came in with this butterfly design I really liked. There ended up being 3 of us that liked the same design, but we all put our own twist on it. I was the only one that had a dragonfly. I was going to put a butterfly for my husband, but Nicole (tattoo artist and my cousin) said maybe he would rather have a dragonfly, and I decided that was good. I Decided to do birth colors for everyone. Meredith is aquamarine, Elizabeth is Emerald, and Mike is PERIDOT but he also likes orange, so I had some orange put into the dragonfly. Mine is opal or Pink Tourmaline. I like pink so that it what I decided on. I never realized before yesterday that everyone else in my family has a greenish color birthstone but me! I wanted names put on, but they had me look at it first to make sure, and yes I still wanted names.
I have one other tattoo which is dolphins circling my ankle. I don't remember it hurting as much as yesterday's hurt, but it was a lot bigger tattoo too. My husband was surprised I got such a big tattoo, but I figured if I am going to do it I am going to go big!
I think Nicole did a great job, and will definately call her when I want my next one! One of the girls got her butterflies on her upper thigh and another on her calf. The first person got an angel on her shoulder.
