Sometimes in life you do things that are completely out of the box. Well, hubby and I decided that we were going to do something different. And we did. We decided to get a tattoo. I decided on a flower, hubby decided on a samurai back piece. He had no idea of the pain involved, nor of how many sessions would be involved. Three sessions later it is still a work in progress. I have the flower, but my idea of a back piece is now on hold. I know that most people see tattoos as normal now, but hey, got to keep the family on their toes. I think they are cringing at the thought of what we might do next. We might let them sweat for a while!!

Still more colour to go.


  1. Looks pretty painful to me and it's not my back!

  2. Wow, that's pretty impressive! Can we see yours? I only have one little tattoo on one shoulder, but have often thought of getting it made bigger... Maybe that will be next year's project! xxx

  3. Is that really hubby ? !!! I'd like a dragonfly on my back x

  4. Personally I've never had any urge to get tattooed, and neither has Jenny. I'm a bit baffled as to why tattooing is suddenly so popular. It seems that every other person under a certain age has been modestly or elaborately inked. I like discreet tattoos, like a small flower on a shoulder or ankle, but larger tattoos seem a bit excessive. For myself, I still think bare flesh is more aesthetically pleasing than flesh that's been "embellished". But each to their own!


  5. Hello, bonsaimum.
    Respectable tattoo. It has been tightly drawn.

    A greeting.
