Planning ink!

Last August I made an appointment to get my fifth tattoo done at Flaming Heart Tattoo. Apparently this is a very popular studio, and having seen Elton's work I certainly understand why. Unfortunately it turned out that there was a wait of about six months for the next free spot, and when the time arrived in the beginning of December I had to cancel my appointment due to the fact that I had just recovered from being sick for more than eight weeks. It was very disappointing, because I'd been looking forward to having ink done by Elton after the horrific disaster the last one turned out to be, but I just didn't dare taking the chance on getting sick all over again. Now, I'm planning on going back there to see if we can give it another try, but I'm a little put off by the fact that there's a small step to get into the studio, and no ramp. I prefer to take my electric wheelchair, but there's no way in hell I'm getting in without a ramp. 150 kilos it a wee bit too much to lift.

Lately I've been thinking about something, a motif, I initially wanted to get as my very first tattoo, but since I can't draw anything but stick figures and couldn't find anyone wanting to draw something as permanent as a tattoo, I put my idea on hold. Now I've found a very nice tattooist, and I've been e-mailing back and forth with her about this idea. It seems very promising, and I'm kinda excited to see what she comes up with. And if everything goes according to my plan I'll have ink done in the beginning of May - how cool is that? I'm not telling you anything else yet. You'll see who, what and where whenever it's finished.
