I did it!

A few weeks ago, I decided it was time to take the plunge and get the tattoo I've been planning for two years. I knew I wanted it to be for our family, and have Jesus Fish in it. My lovely friend Sarah drew it for me.
I decided I wanted to be able to see it all of the time, so I chose my wrist. Here is my wrist about 8 pm this evening...
And here is my wrist with it's new decoration.
There is a fish there for John and I, and for Ava, Jace, Eli, and Seth. Eli's fish is a slightly different color, which should show up more at the tattoo heals.
And here is me in the middle of it all:
Thanks SO much to Phil Holt at Red Letter 1 in Tampa. He did an awesome job and made it a relatively pain free experience for me!
More details later...I am beat!

How cool! Relatively pain free? On your wrist? Sounds painful to me. Mines on my ankle...I don't remember it feeling wonderful. :)

I love that design! I am a sign language interpreter so I can't have any tattoos on my hands or wrists, but believe me, I wish I could......so I try to make up for it with the rest of my skin even though to date I only have two.....anyways...awesome design!
