Last week I mentioned treating myself to an early birthday present but I was hush hush about it. I got a new tattoo this past weekend! My tribute to my love of coffee.
No joke! I have been wanting a coffee related tattoo for a couple of years now but it had to be just right. I've made some bad tattoo decisions when I was younger so when I make such a committment now, I have to give it a lot of thought. I found the right artist for it too! His name is Cookie and he works out of Graceland Tattoo in Wappingers Falls, NY. We both share the same birthday!
My view for most of the session. Mike looking at his phone but check out that decor. That couch!! It's a gorgeous space overall. I should have taken more pictures but I was feeling anxious while waiting. I plan to get a few more on my left arm.
I've been wanting my arm tattooed ever since I was younger but I didn't because I worked in offices and back then that kind of stuff was frowned upon. So most of my tattoos are on my back and ankles. I had one job where I really had to do what I could to not show my ankle tattoos, that was annoying. But now that I'm home I can do what I want.
The attitude towards tattoos has changed so much in the last 10 years that you'll probably see more tattoos in a corporate setting now. Nothing wrong with that, I think it's great. Just make good decisions before you commit. There's too many bad/ugly tattoos out there.
