I got it done for my 21st Birthday as a gift to myself and I'm glad I did it but I'm annoyed that I've put off getting it finished!
( For thoses that don't know what my tattoo looks like, you can can check it out here).
It looks beautiful as it is but if you could only see the finished product that made me say 'YES!' to getting it put on me permanently you'll know why I'm itching to get it completed.
Cause all that is really needed is the beautiful detailing to be shaded in, for more definition, and the middle filled in.
A lot of people have asked me what is going in the middle and it's always the same answer, a skull.
Yeah and I get a lot of the same looks that have probably showed up on you're face.
But the thing is my tattoo wasn't just a 'on a whim' design, it comes from a lot of different designs and decisions on a course of 8years!
And when I think about it, tons of people already had the same idea! ( e.g. Swallows, Angel wings, dandelions etc etc ) And I really wanted mine to be unique.
The skull, however, was going to be needled in black ink; but I've been seriously contemplating on getting it done in white ink so that it does and doesn't stand out that much as it has caused a lot that 'bewilderment'.
So I went on google and here's some white-ink tattoo's that I came accross which I just thought looked beautiful!
The first and second picture's my fave as the detail is so emmaculate and so different from you're normal black ink that I can just see how good my tattoo will look once it's finished!
I'm now super excited, but unfortunately it's going to need to be put off a little more as Andrei (my boyfriend) and I are halfway done saving to move into a new home and also putting money away for our 5 year Anniversay at the end of July which I'll will come back to a little later :-)
So what are you're thoughts on white tattoo's?
Would it be something you'll consider?
Do have any tattoo's that you're proud of/regret?
Where would you reccommend to get inked in you're city?
I know a lot of my followers are US/UK based, but if you ever decide to come to Auckland, New Zealand and would like some ink, I reccommend you go where I got my tattoo; The Tattooed Heart ( link for website here ), and my tattooists name is Aaron.
He's you're typical Heavy Metaler with an amazing talent and I would say nothing but good things about his work to anyone!
Otherwise I will keep you up-to-date with my tattoo's progress in another month or so once the anniversary and moving's over and hopefully it will look as good as I'm imagining :-)
