Will Knit for Tattoos!


This sweet little guy, The Naked Sheep, is our shop logo and my very first tattoo. He's on the inside of my lower left leg. I got it earlier this year when I went to a tattoo show with some friends. I wanted to check out some local tattoo artists, and actually watch some people getting tattoos. I wanted to see if grown men were crying during the process. This cute little tattoo was a test, to see if I could handle the pain. Because this next photo is the tattoo I've been wanting.

I went to Atlas Tattoo yesterday and Scott did a beautiful job placing this design on the outside of my right leg. I'm very happy with it. Did it hurt, you ask? Well, actually, it did. Brad came with me and was sweet and supportive, as usual. He said it reminded him of when I was in the hospital in labor with our two sons, because I was lying on the table, utilizing the breathing techniques that I learned those many years ago. This tattoo is so awesome; it was definitely worth any pain.

Let me know about your tattoos. Especially if they're knitting related!

Wow Cheri!! That's beautiful! It's a lot bigger then I thought you were going for but I love it. Now I need a knitting related tattoo! My flower and butterfly are lame in comparison. You brave girl you!

P.S. I love the idea of lamaz(sp?) breathing technique during a tattoo. Cracks me up!

I have five now! Two koi fish, one sun with my son's name in it, a Chinese symbol and even a little Egyptian vibe. Watch out: they're addictive!

I have a tattoo on my lower back. http://www.flickr.com/photos/crankpot/289013776/in/set-72157594550508021/ It's one of four currently - mainly because I'm broke and my tattoo artist is always booked for months
I love tattoos and I love knitting...
