First human victim other than myself. #Tattoo.

You may recall that I purchased a tattoo machine awhile back.

And I SLOWLY got to know it

And that I took the process seriously

And I hardly dared plug it in

And I tested it out

And I doodled all over myself with surgical marker

And finally did one on my left thigh:

And got my second professional tattoo by English Dan to learn by watching:

Then did another one on myself, this time the right thigh:

And yesterday, finally on someone else.  Thank you Carolyn for being so brave!  She wanted it big, so I drew it on freehand and made it SIZE LARGE.  It’s crude and amateur, but I loved doing it and so honored that Carolyn insisted!

“A picture is a secret about a secret, the more it tells you the less you know.” Diane Arbus #photoshootThursday

It is always fun to have impromptu photoshoots!  Always!  Last Thursday, we gathered together again in the workshop at District 319 and played.   I love capturing moments with my iPhone:
