In February of '07 I went in to have Angel tie it all together with a few new items. The sleeve now sports an anchor, a sea serpent and an 18th century three masted sloop of war. In my first session we were able to complete the anchor, and this time around we finished the water around it, as well as most of the rope tied to it. Plus we were able to finish most of the work on the ship. In the next sitting we'll be tackling the sky that will span the area between the horizon line and the compass which also goes around the scroll.
There's something so wonderful about getting a new tattoo. Even though it hurts, and the first day or two after you get a big chunk done can be uncomfortable, it is such good feeling. I just keep looking down at it, and it makes me happy to see the art that I'll carry with me for the rest of my life.
