Yesterday I got a new tattoo (oh I love new ink), and, here 'tis.
It's a tribute to my babydog Dearly, who passed away last week. But it's also in memory of all of the pets that I have loved & lost so far in my lifetime... Nico, Tiger, Quiche, Radar, Rasta & Piewicket... 7 in all, and a star for each one...
I will add another star for every future pet as well as time goes on. I wanted something old-skool simple and symbolic- like stars- and something that could be added to, but wasn't sure what exactly beyond that... my tattooist Francella (@ Sinister Pleasures here in EPTX) hooked me up with the idea for the stars to trail from ankle to foot, and it was a fab idea, I love the way it turned out, she did a stellar job as usual.
So in addition to being sentimental, it's also cute... good good. I really like that there is a tiny star in there too, because to me, that one is especially for Piewicket, who was just a tiny baby kitten (we had just 1 month together but I adored little Pie) when a stupid dog mauled and killed the poor thing.
I can't wait til it heals. On a side note, damn does it hurt to get tattooed on the foot.
