Inked

I did some layouts for inked scrapbooking. Here is anam's blog if you are interested. if you are into ink, you should check it out. Yes, i have tatoos. One on each foot. I am not crazy inked up like brian is but I do like tatoos and considered it an art form. i was an art history major and took a wide variety of classes and i loved studying the history of tatooing. so, i got one. my dad practically had a stroke! i remember that day like it was yesterday. and i remember people always saying, how are you going to cover that up when it is on your foot? well... who said anything about covering them up?




Just love my Jillibean Soup goodies! I used that and Doodlebug pp...love polka dots! I get all my Doodlebug at HSS!


And this is the scrubster. the one in the middle of his back is actually unfinished. he needs to go back and get it filled in. but this is totally him..strong on the outside but a big softie on the inside! ;)

Cool layouts! My daughter turned 18 last April and got her first tatoo. It is a small design she came up with and it is on her shoulder. No one would really get it, but it has significance to her. While I won't say I "had a stroke" when I saw it, I was very, very quiet for a while. I think I was shocked that she did it without telling me first. We have a great relationship where she tells me everything...somethings I wish she wouldn't. LOL! Happy Monday!
