Well as I'm sure you're aware by now, I'm safely back in France! I didn't really do the whole 'Merry Xmas everyone! What did you get?!' type of post, so I'll just assume you're all in good health and had a wonderful holiday. As well as the many awesome Christmas presents I did get, I also got something else for Christmas.
A present from me, to me. Something I've spent the last year and a half thinking about and designing. You've probably already guessed it. If you haven't...well no offence buddy but it is the title of the post!
Yup, I got my first tattoo. Or as my good friend Mr Frosty puts it: "Rat a tat tat!"
So here it is:
|Couple of hours after it was done. Also, I have no idea why the date is upside down.|
|The next day.|
I'm no good at taking pictures of my own calf as you've probably guessed, but it looks so much nicer in person!
On a side note:
I have no idea why my camera 1) Shows the date on pictures as it didn't used to and 2) Why that date is in the American format.
But yeah there it is! Took 2 and a half hours and I am dead chuffed with it. It came out so much better than I was expecting! The design itself is incorporated of two main ideas. The first being the English Tudor Rose, and the second being lyrics from one of my favourite songs.
The song is 'England Belongs to Me' by a London based Punk/Oi band called 'Cock Sparrer'
Here are the lyrics:
Years of being told you ain't as good as us
Join the line, sign your name
And they all said that our country's going bust
But no-one's fooling us again
England belong's to me
A nation's pride the dirty water on the rivers
No one can take away our memory
Oh Oh, England belongs to me
We'll show the world that the boys are back to stay
And you all know what we can do
Heads held high, fighting all the way
For the red, white, and blue
I strongly suggest you check them out.
That's it from me.
