I got a new tattoo! Is this controversial? I don’t know, but I love it and wanted to share it with you.

What do you think? My friend Alice, her world-renowned tattoo-artist husband Lewie Hess, and their 3-year-old son (Scarlet’s future husband) all came to visit a few months back, and they brought along all his fancy gear to give me my tattoo in our backyard. I took pictures of the process… wanna see? Don’t click “read more” if you are faint of heart…

the machinery…

clean and prepped…

i told lewie what i was envisioning, and he drew it out for me, nailing it on the first try!

there it is…

getting inky…

working away. i was surprised by how little it hurt. i remember it hurting worse.

halfway there…

another cute baby arrived…

scarlet LOVES it. she calls it a “stamp.”

all healed up.

I know tattoos aren’t for everyone, but I am really happy with this. Though it was hard to get a pic of it for ya that wasn’t too revealing (it’s under my arm on my rib cage if you can’t tell), so i apologize for any side-boob that  might seem offensive. So, do any of you have tattoos celebrating your kiddos?
