The Whole Shabang

I finally had J take some proper photos of my tattoo so I can share it in its entirety.  I can't wait until it's done healing so I can go swimming!

Girl silhouette by the very talented Charmaine Olivia.


There it is.  :)  Feedback on this is great (like always), but if you aren't a fan of tattoos, keep in mind that it's already on my body and nothing negative you can say will change that.  Mean comments will only hurt my feelings.<3


Three more days of house sitting and then I'll FINALLY be home!  I can't wait.  I'm planning a shop update for Thursday at 4:00 CST, so I hope to see you there.  I will have all new stuff!  Exciting!  Have a great day!!!  xoxo Katie

  8. That is pretty much the most beautiful tattoo i've ever seen. My only problem with tattoos is when woman get big, gaudy, unfeminine tattoos, but yours is exactly the kind of style i would get; Feminine, elegant and poetic.

  58. I love it Katie. It's lovely and I like the quote as well!

    I am 46 and just got my first tattoo in February. Always something I wanted to do but because of life/circumstances, just got around to it now. I'm kinda glad I waited because I really know what I want. I have gotten five more tattoos sine for a total of six! I love my tattoos. Nobody else has to but it makes me happy if they do! ; )

    Thanks for sharing yours!

  66. Beautiful!!!! And I've always loved the feather on your arm, too!! <3

    ReplyDelete
  67. I love your tattoo. I especially love what you said about negative comments, too. I have one that's on my arm, very visible, and I get comments all the time--good and bad. I always tell people, "Well, it doesn't matter, it's not going anywhere. Besides, I only regret things that I don't do." It usually throws them off and leaves them without much else to say. Ha!

    I think your tattoo is so so pretty and I love how feminine it is! Perfect.

    ReplyDelete
