Today feels like a good day for a frivolous post. There’s a lot of crap going on in the world (I’m looking at you, North Carolina) that I just don’t feel like dwelling on for the moment.
So instead, I invite you to participate in my super-unimportant-non-scientific opinion poll!
Almost 3 years ago, I got my first tattoo. It’s Latin, and literally means “life is short, art is long” but I prefer to be a little more poetic in my translation and say “life is short, but art is forever.” That picture was taken the day I got the tattoo, and somehow manages to make me look like an amorphous blob- I think I was twisted at a weird angle trying to get a good pic with my crappy little camera phone. To clarify things a little, it’s on my right rib cage.
Here recently, I have been bitten by the “I want another tattoo!” bug and I’ve decided I would like to add to the one I already have. That’s where you come in! I have a couple ideas for what I would like to do, and would like your input.
Idea #1: Adding a decorative frame around the words. Something like this, please ignore the watermark…I totally yanked this image from Google just to give you an idea what I have in mind.
Idea #2: I found these when browsing Pinterest, and think I would like something like this. Not exactly the same, of course, because screw people who copy tattoos instead of coming up with something original. But, to give you an idea, I’d like to add a scroll and some realistic looking roses.
What I’m worried about with idea #2 is that it would end up really big since the words I already have are on the big side, but I’m currently leaning toward this idea anyway. Go big or go home, right?
Okay. That’s what I’ve got. Whatcha think?
