Totally Not Knitting-Related

My always-fabulous coworker Honey Sweet brought her camera just so she could take tattoo pictures for me. Hooray, Honey Sweet!

It's still raw, so of course it will look better in a few days (gotta love those little red blood spots on it!). My original plan was to do a session each month, but now I'm hoping to get the remaining two sections done in May. If my artist has the time, then there's no problem.

Also, because I don't think I ever explained why I'm getting this tattoo: it's an adaptation of this urban legend.

Today I found out that another friend of mine is pregnant ... that means more tiny tiny knitting!! It's actually my friend who wrote the kanji for my tattoo. :-)

That rocks!!! Although I have completely forgotten my Japanese (one year during high school), I love the way the writing looks with the lotus!

I love it! Although just thinking about being tattooed over those bones like that makes me cringe.. I think its very beautiful. It seems like an area where you'd just want to have it over with quickly.. and I actually _like_ getting tattooed. Can't wait to see the rest of it.
