Tattoo Number One!

(Listening to - Rhaina, Napping)

So, I finally got my first tattoo done!


It was done by Mike Kearney at St. John's Ink, Rhaina's local. This pic was taken shortly after I removed the cover, so it's still red and shiny.
It's to commemorate the release of my first book(also available on the Kindle, and on Fictionwise), and I plan to get one for each subsequent title, too.

The experience was better than I'd expected. It was painful, but not overly so, barring some of the shading. I spent most of the time watching him work, which probably didn't help. ;)

Now that it's done, though, I'm glad I went through the discomfort.

So, whaddya think? Like? Dislike? Got any? :)



PS - Managed to get some writing in yesterday, though not lots. In theory I'll get some more in when Rhaina's working.

I like it son, but is it me or is that a left handed scythe?

It looked better this way around, and it IS on my left arm, after all... ;-)

It's so cool!

I would love to get one, probably in the same area but closer to my wrist, but I have no idea what I'd want. Well, I have a little idea, but I'd need to design it.

Adam said...

Thanks Mel!

Had it been smaller, it would've been a little higher up, but it looked best where it is now. ;)

You should've seen my rough sketch... Ugh!

Nice one! I have four, and have promised myself no more until I'm published. That one is going to be a doozy--either my entire back or my left shoulder and upper arm. I figure I have a while to decide. : /

Adam said...

Thanks peeps! :D
