Amy came to play for a couple days the last time I was down in Portland.
She texted me the day before, “are there any tattoo shops in Portland?” (ha, of course!) and then actually followed through with it when she arrived! We googled “portland tattoo parlors” and decided on Captain Jacks, simply because it’s on Hawthorne Blvd and I wanted to eat at Veggie Thai – which was as delicious as usual.
We had to kill a couple hours before they could get her in for her tattoo so after dinner we headed to Cup and Saucer cafe for coffee.
So finally at long last we returned to the tattoo shop, Amy got her little stars sketched up (did you notice them in the pictures from my last post??), and we sat down to get it done. I also have to say, I seriously enjoyed looking at the binders full of images of previous tattoos the artists have done. Some are amazing, some are just hilarious. I can’t say I enjoyed the back of the piercing photo binder so much though if you catch what I’m talking about… ::shudder::
It was terribly exciting to watch. She barely even flinched!
What do you guys think of tattoos? Would you ever get one? I like them on other people but I just don’t think I can commit. I’m almost positive that I would either a) want to get rid of it at some point, or b) want to get tons more of them – so I’m just avoiding the ordeal altogether. I’ll be happy to go watch anyone get theirs though… muahahaha.
