What I Did on My Vacation

I saw Mad Max! I ate delicious food and drank delicious beverages! I sat around our firepit with my darling husband and our dear friends and our adorable doggies! I went to sex shops and bought things! I took all the selfies with Deeky W. Gashlycrumb!

Goofing around, lounging at home, at the movies, and visiting a candy factory.

And, as we did last year, we got tandem tattoos! I'll leave it to Deeks to share pix of his new (and very awesome) art if he's so inclined, but here is an image of my new piece, which is a watercolor Medusa jellyfish, in reference to the Greek myth:

The piece took nearly four hours, and was done by Jake Crozier, who also did my beetle, my abstract leg piece, my POW!, and my sassy cat.

I gave Jake a basic concept and told him to do whatever he wanted, and I love the result. Thanks, Jake! And thanks to Deeks for being the best, and thanks to Iain for getting me more ink for my birthday! ♥

As always, please feel welcome to share your ink, talk about your tattoos, ask questions of inked folks if you're considering getting a tattoo, whatever you like!
