My right little toe is driving me nuts. As you can see, I got it re-inked on Friday. I took the shot right when I got home. I like it very much. It looks intentional again. The blue shouldn’t be as bright once it heals and peals. I had him skip the outline and use a couple shades of blue. I will not wait another 18 years to get it re-inked.
The ring should go further around the inside of the toe; I’ll have to get it touched up. Without weight on the foot it looks fine, but if I’m standing on it you can see where it stops.
It was incredibly hot this weekend and I could not swim. Okay, that will pass. Now I’m wearing shoes and socks for work and the tattoo is really sensitive and itchy. I wore flip-flops all weekend, like I usually do, so the only problem was keeping it clean and moist (A&D ointment). ARG!
While not swimming on a hot muggy Saturday, I went to the Hinsdale Fine Arts fair. I picked up a cut paper piece I bought a few weeks ago and bought a lovely little oil painting of a squash. It’s called Front and Center. I forgot the artist’s name. I’ll look at her card later. I love it. The signature was still wet on it. The frame rocks too. I hung it on the little wall that is next to my kitchen doorway. It’s technically in the dining room I suppose, but I can see it from my recliner and when I walk in the front door. I’m very pleased with it and hope to soon forget how much I paid for it.
