Got it and love it! :) 5 years ago
How I did it: my sister bought me a tatoo for my birthday. i wanted a butterfly on my left wrist. i found the image i wanted and got it done.
i've had it for 12 years. eventually i'd like to get it re-coloured and changed a little. i have a friend who is an amazing tatoo artist and one day i'll book an appointment with her to do that. Read how I did it… 5 years ago
And just need to hand me design into him to check.
(I live at least 15 miles away from the nearest tattooist and work fulltime so its tricky to get time when complications arise but I will get it done!)
Probably next year since this year is almost over now. That’s fine, the most important thing is that I’m 100% happy with it :D 5 years ago
Where shall I get it thats still fairly private but won’t stretch if I get fatter/have a baby in the future?? Meh

Went back to see Mr Tattoo-man yesterday & he stiiiill hadn’t redesigned it after 2 weeks. Grrs.
But he did do it while I ws there. Not-so-grrrs.
I really like it :) It looks better than my original. But hey, I’m no professional artist/tattoost. And it’ll only need to be a teeny bit bigger than I wanted, but still real-butterfly-sized so yays :)
I need to check the knot in the middle is right and then just need to set a date with the Sah

Just back from taking my design to the tattooist and it turns out my design is too intricate for the size I want it :(
The guy didn’t really seem to care, or make any time for me. He also put me off getting it on my hip, as he said if I gained any weight it would be ruined.
He’s going to redesign it so that it’ll work. So time will tell a) if it still means the same to me and b) if I like it. Just now I don’t think I’d consider getting it bigger than I origionally planned. And now I’m questioning the location too. I defo won’t be rushed into it until I’m 100% sure. I’m just really gutted since my design meant a lot to me and since it’s been rejected so to speak, I feel like what it stood for was rejected too :( 6 years ago
September 14th! scared
And still unsure if it should be the front or back of my hip?? And above my waistline so people can see it sometimes? or below so that its just for me?? 6 years ago
My tattoo will have 4 wings all linked in the middle to each other, to represent each of my 4 family members. And that even though we each choose our own paths, we are always linked.
And as a reminder that there’s always the chance that something ordinary can become something amazing. 6 years ago
