Welcome to INKED -- I love the artwork that is being used in tattoos and its amazing how many people are getting tattoos now-a-days and its not just for bikers or marines anymore! This hop then is dedicated to the beautiful artwork whether you have a tattoo or not . . .
Lynne Kirsch got her first tattoo in 2000 and its of Winnie the Pooh floating upwards with 3 balloons on her upper thigh. She now wants to get another tattoo and hopefully it will be this year of angel wings with a quilt square in the center with her little angel's name above the wings.
We all get tattoos for various reasons. I have noticed that women that with breast cancer that have their breast removed are now a large group of getting tattoos. When my lump was first found and of course with all the concern -- I thought and still feel that if and when my breast would be removed, I want to have a glorious tattoo of a peacock!!!!
The art of tattoo can be anything as simple as a name or as beautiful as a peacock and there is always a story behind a tattoo.
This blog hop is dedicated to the stories and the artwork behind a tattoo. If you happen to visit today at my blog, I appreciate the visit but I would love for you to appreciate all the wonderful projects that are being displayed today and would want you to stop at the first inking with Lynne . If you arrived from visiting Laura
We are very blessed and fortunate to have Daisy Collins of I Love Sketches by Tsunami Rose for $10 of merchandise in her zibbet store .
Well let me get onto my INKED project so you will have enough time to visit and see everyone Else's great INK.
I got my first INK on 11-5-2010. My bestie told me we was going to go out in do something but it wouldn't take long. Instructed I didn't wear tight legged or long pants. I was kinda frightened cause I had no idea what he had planned. Next thing I new I was getting my Son's name down my left leg. My INK reads Chase. I love it. Chase passed away at birth in 1999 and now he is forever with me. My next one will be a medical tattoo for diabetes, I am wanting it on the underside of my forearm so when my palm is up the people can see it. I'm hoping this will alert them faster then the medical bracelet I wear in that spot and they just so happen to NEVER SEE. Here is my INK.
Now onto my project for this hop. I made a Layout of my bestie and his INK. I got permission to be showcasing him to all you lovely ladies. He He.
Asking him what colors he would like me to use , he said his favorite colors which happen to be red and black. I used black as my main background and used Tim Holtz distresser tool to rough in it up a little. I cut down red and did the same thing to it.I used some left over punch work and just inked 2 to get the right colors, they are the bottom black and red. Added a few red and black buttons because I felt it needed something else but jewels, pearls and flowers was not allowed. For the lettering I used the 6"x12" cricut paper for the tags, bags, boxes & more cartridge. It is the third set in, the red with black, white, yellow lines on it. I thought it went well with this color scheme. CERTIFIED is what his ink is. Every time I see him I look at his ink and in my head I add things to it, darken it up, redo it and so forth. I asked if I can work with it and he strongly says NO.
