Healing, peeling and itchin' like hell

Here it is, "in full technicolor". The other day, I had another "Why such a scary-looking tattoo?" query. I said, "Coz it's a very traditional tattoo. It's like when you get married, you want to wear white right?" Now, how did I come up with THAT one? (Pat on the back. :D)

Last night, I had a dream, and it involved a very itchy arm. I woke up to myself scratching at my tattoo. And after that it was so painful I had to get out of bed, put some aloe vera gel on it, wait for it to dry up, then lie in bed with my eyes wide open 'coz now it was impossible to go back to sleep. This was 4am.

In any case, isn't it gorgeous?... Oh, the things we'll do to look pretty...


  1. Oh, I love it! The colors are beautiful.

  2. Not brave enough for one this large but it rocks!!

  3. Thanks Kristin! Really, nothing beats birthing labour and then having to push something the size of a bowling ball out of yourself... twice... :). The tattoo was chicken feed. "I am woman, hear me ROOOAARRR!" Heh heh.

  4. wauw, stunning tattoo, tough but feminin, really like it!

    Like your jewelry by the way, just curious, you send overseas as well?

  5. Hi Juultje! Thanks for loving the tattoo!

    Sure I send overseas all the time... ;)
