Hot date with a tattoo artist

I ink therefore I am.

For reasons that I will not explore here (for now anyway), I have made an appointment for a tattoo. Up until this point in my life, the only ink my skin has received is from those damn-blasted fill-it-yerself-and-save-money printer ink cartridge filling kits. This time the ink will be more thoughtfully applied, cost much more and last a whole lot longer. In fact, I hear that it will last as long as I do. Now how many things in life can you say that about?

I’ve decided on a Hell themed icon or logo. Right now I’m debating between the Hell snake (vertical) on my right upper arm or perhaps the Hell flaming logo (see our T-shirts shop page for the design).

My wife found the tattoo artist online. She goes by the name of Man (the tattoo artist, not my wife). Pronounced like the “mon” in “montage”. We met with her yesterday in Osaka about an hour and a half from home. She’s nice and does very fine work. I feel comfortable with the studio and the artist. I also just discovered that one of our recent customers specializes in laser tattoo removal so I’m all set…

Tonight I printed a few tattoos on special transfer paper off of my printer. Must say that the tats look very cool indeed (or trashy depending on your view!).  In fact I’ve printed so many test tattoos that now I have to fill the blasted ink cartridges again. Damn and blast!

Wish me luck. Or, if you’re my mom, perhaps not…
