F'ing Awesome!

Sorry, but that is the only phrase for it. What an amazingly Holy moment. So very great and wonderful and a tad painful, but WELL worth it. It doesn't even hurt now. I can handle momentary stinging, it is long-term throbbing that gets me down and the tattoo has caused no throbbing.

Photo Essay today, narrative essay tomorrow.


A blank canvas... (with pretty pink toenails - huh?)





First, the stencil. This part didn't hurt.


Then the needle... um yeah, that stung a bit but it really wasn't that bad.





The outlining is complete.


Then came the color:




Final Product:

Yes, the middle letter is still a bit flat on the bottom but we liked the edgier look to the angles.

Though if you encounter any Hebrew readers, they're liable to take that samekh as a mem, which might suggest that you're advertising your khmd (BDB: "inordinate, ungoverned, selfish desire, sq. acc.; of lustful desire."). . . .

I am always mixing my samekh's with my mem's - remember the Hebrew Yankees hat that either phonetically spelled Yankees or with a simple mem for your samekh switch literally meant 'those who suck'.

There were some anti-Yankee Hebrew readers who LOVED that and one Yankee rooting Hebrew professor who almost kicked me out of class... until he saw the emblem on the side of the hat that went with it.
