Could It Be? Satan Cupcake?!

But first, the lovely Ella. She's still not totally healed yet, but she looks great. She fits perfectly in with everything else on my arm. I might have wanted her to look slightly more sinister, but really, it's probably for the best. I don't want to have to listen to people bitch about it since she's in such a visible spot. And now...

Matthias the evil cupcake. I've wanted a cupcake tattoo for well over a year, but it's something that got pushed down the list in favor of bigger, more time consuming pieces. I found a very similar piece of clip art online and knew that was the one. I had some time Tuesday night, so I strolled over to 10th Street to see Shane and Jev. Jev ended up actually doing the tattoo and he did a great job. I was expecting it to sting a good bit since it is near my collarbone, but it really didn't bother me. He kept me laughing and had me in and out in about an hour. I think he's going to need a touch up because some of my tops have been rubbing him the wrong way. I don't think it'll be too bad. He's to the scabby and crusty stage now.

I'm obsessed with the placement. I can't stop looking at it. I definitely want something in the same spot on my other shoulder, but that won't clash with Lucius. I see Malia in a little over a week for my gerbera daisies with skulls in them and that will officially finish all the major spots on my left arm. Then I just need filler and I'll officially have a sleeve. Of course, I need to figure out who's good enough to freehand filler. There's no way a stencil would work, so that's going to be a bit of a challenge. I think I know who I'll end up using, though, since he came up with a similar idea not knowing what I had in mind. Can't wait!

Not so keen on the cupcake, the swallow is more my style but they are both awesome in their own ways!
