Overall Visions

I've been mentally chewing on a lot the last few days. Russ definitely gave me plenty of food for thought in our consultation. What is my ultimate vision for my body art? Will I end up totally covered and like one of "those people"? Honestly, I don't know. I do think it's something I need to sit down and think about. I know how I want my left arm to look when all is said and done. For the time being, I think I may leave my back alone. I learned with my left wrist that getting a tattoo for the sake of filling the space is just dumb. It's not that I don't love rose, but I think I may have been better off if I'd never had to have it covered up in the first place. So for now the back is going to stay empty, much to the relief of the anti-ink members of my family (ie all of them).

I'd like to come up with a convention piece, but at the same time, I don't want to force something. Maybe that's something I can talk to Russ about while he's working on my puppet. He said the ideal convention piece is something that can be done in a few hours and doesn't leave you sitting overly exposed for said period of time. So that leaves out thighs and back. Feet, calves, and arms are ideal places because you can stay fully clothed. Since the convention is in June, I'd be wearing shorts and flats or flip flops anyway. I have a few months to think about it. I'll see if Russ wants to set something up for either that Friday or Sunday as I'm going to a wedding that Saturday.

In other news, I got around to emailing Kurt pictures of my arm so he could start sketching. He said I have "perfect skin" and there isn't much to work around. I thanked him for the compliment. I'm sure there are plenty of people out there who are more mole-y than I am, but it's better safe than sorry. If I'm not sure, I assume it's a mole.

Now...back to work. *sigh*

I'm glad the pictures came out well enough to see them :) Yay for being overly cautious! lol

Yeah, once I enlarged them you could see everything pretty clearly. Even my shark bite. :)
