tattoo number two

A week ago today I got my second tattoo. Before Amy and I moved here we talked about getting a thistle tattoo as a lifelong souvenir of our year in Scotland. We looked online a lot trying to find a design that we liked but they were all too 'real' looking, and if you know what a thistle looks like you know they aren't really the most beautiful, girly weeds! I got my eyebrow pierced at a tattoo shop and while we were waiting we looked through some of the design books they had. We found a page with several different thistle designs, including the one I chose. It's pretty and girly and very... me. I love it!

The first two pictures were taken the day I got it done and the last was taken today.

It is beautiful!

I missed you yesterday. I dragged Ev to the PEN just because I wanted to look around a bit. It was not fun.

They did a great job on the color. Thistles were a fine choice. I had some thistles that popped up in the middle of my "lawn" (to call it a lawn is an insult to lawns) and they are just starting to bloom. Can't bear to pull them up because they're just to Scottish for me not to love them.
