In 1994 I got two tattoos, both butterflies of course, it’s my thing. In later years I have wanted to get other tattoos, but never had. A few years ago my son was stillborn and I wanted to get a tattoo for him. As soon as I saw this idea I knew I wanted it. I saved a few inspirational photos and waited for the right time and for someone who was skilled with watercoloring.
A few months ago my husband saw a tattoo on a cashier and asked her who the tattoo artist was. He gave me her name and I looked over her portfolio. I was extremely impressed. No one wants a crappy tattoo, but this was a special tattoo and I wanted it to be perfect.
This morning I had my appointment scheduled. The artist had the sketches ready, we used Williams actual footprints we had inked on paper. She made a tracing, and we made sure the layout was good. I was a little undecided on the specifics of a few things and left them to her artistic opinion. I was wanting an ombre/tye dye/watercolor feel.
The artist Tiffany, did a great job. Not only was I impressed with her art work, but also her approach to tattooing. It barely stung for a few minutes and my arm is only slightly poofy a few hours later. I am so pleased with the results. I have been missing William a lot lately. I think this is perfect for us.
