Tday

So for Vday I got my hubby a tattoo that he had talked about forever getting. Yesterday was Tday(tattoo day). If you don't know by now I love tattoos..love them! Love getting them, watching them, even the smell of the shops...am I weird? Don't answer.

I am kind of a lazy photographer when it comes to personal stuff. On session I work to get every possible shot but when it comes to personal stuff I just want to enjoy more than photograph. I did take some shots though of course, no real editing just cropped and converted to b/w. I didn't even size them to the same size,oops.

Now most of you won't recognize the tattoo (maybe Pat and your husband will Heather). But its a Star Trek symbol from their mirror universe, he wanted to get something Star Trek w/out being so obviously dorky.

The obligatory (ok not obligatory but I just wanted to use it) fisheye shot of the shop:

Now I want to go get another one!!! Cause you know nine just isn't enough.
If you are in Cinci and want an awesome tattoo I highly suggest Andy at Flying Tiger. linkage here:

He also did my last tattoo for me almost a year ago pictured here:

Jena Photography said...

Awesome! TFS! Love it in B&W.

Christy said...

wonderful shots!! those are really great. Love your tattoo; I'm just not brave enough.

Becky said...

These are so nice and sharp! I'm glad you explained it's a Star Trek tattoo, otherwise I'd have to ask, "James, why do you want to stab the world?"

Awesome pics!! Cory's in the process of deciding on his first tattoo-he thinks he wants "FORGIVEN" across his shoulder blades.

Oh, and Cory just recognized the symbol James got and said "sweet!", so...yeah.

Sharon said...

I am not a fan of tattoos. I think the artwork (can be) amazing but I just don't get it. Nice captures, as much as my squeamishness could look. ;)

Reds said...

Wow! He is an amazing artist! Both your husband and your tattoos are beautiful! Got a small one that I got so long ago - makes me want another one... ;)

Tell your hubby "thanks" because now William wants one just like it. They could be twins. Love that first shot of the whole place, super cool!

Jason said...

Those are cool. I can not help myself and chuckle a little bit every time I see Keaton's name. It is not a common one so it is kind of fun.

pat said...

Whoa, that is one honkin' tatt! Love the way you chronicled this...but where are the shots of him wincing??

CindyTykie said...

Great shots

Beth said...

YOur tattto is lovely and I love the black and white versions of your DH's tattoo. I'm planning one soon, and I'm bummed not to be able to take my own pics:)

Suzy said...

Cool tattoo's! And what a great gift for Valentines! I might have to get hubby the one he wants next year??

Michelle said...

love the shot that you love. looks like some awesome work. although I still think they look like they hurt :)

If I were getting a tattoo, I'd be completely immobilized, trying to decide on one! It's hard enough to pick a POTD! I really like your tattoo. . . but seeing this process is probably as close as I'll ever get to having one.

Lou said...

I love the b/w's. I only have one, but I love it. My sister, 2 nieces, and I all got one alike on the same day. It was an awesome experience.

Mandy said...

Holy smokes girl! That rocks. I have been thinking about getting another one for a long time. I am just not sure where to do it, and what to get. Now you gave me the itch though...I love the smell of tattoo parlors. Is it weird that they all smell the same?

--sme said...

Those are awesome shots--and b&w was the perfect choice!!!

Amy said...

So cool! My sis works for a tattoo artist in NYC, she has a few neat ones. Awesome shots you took of the shop and tattoo'ing! :)

Raechel said...

Awesome tattoo and your husbands is pretty cool too!

Shannon said...

Wow! His tattoo is cool, I'd never in a million years guess what it was tho! :) Yours is very pretty too! I have one on my foot as well, I love it! :) Now I want another one!! :D
