Hour of the Wolf
You might have noticed my tumblr expoloding with images of big bad fairytale wolfs not so long ago. I was looking for tattoo inspiration. I knew I wanted a wolf silhouette and when I stumbled upon Nora Aoyagi's Fancy Wolf print I knew my search was at an end. I sent her an email to ask her permission and waited with baited breath. I was so pleased when I received her reply :) Yay! I am getting a tattoo! :)
I'd like the real thing a tad lower, probably right between my shoulder blades.
I know tattoo parlours will use transfers to help you decide on size and placement but I got a few sheets myself to ensure I already had a good idea where I am going with this by the time I made the appointment. I figured I'd be awfully flustered standing infront of the counter with my print outs, so to make up for my inarticulate, mumbling, non-specific (well, like I say: Flustered) self, I needed to feel as prepared as possible. You know, so I'd only come over a little silly rather than a complete headcase.
I haven't any yet but I had my hand quietly squeezed to a pulp by a brave friend while she was having a tattoo done on her ankle. I was reading her Alice in Wonderland as her colourful butterfly took shape. Judging by how densely squeezed my hand was by the end of it I am pretty sure I am in for some serious ouch. But that'll pass and my fancy wolf is going to run across my back for the rest of my life. How cool is this going to be when I am an oldster?! Granny with the big bad wolf on her back *snigger* I plan to remain childish, although once you're retired I believe the word is "eccentric".
