I got this really cool henna tattoo yesterday, as a small Christmas gift to myself, and I can’t stop looking at it. I love sun & moon imagery, and this particular design is supposed to symbolize growth and good fortune, both of which I need.
I’ve been wanting another real tattoo for a long time (I already have 2), but this is making me want it even more. I may have mentioned this already, but I am a HUGE fan of tattoo art. I watch Miami Ink and LA Ink on TLC, and I’m blown away by the awesomeness of each and every tattoo those artists create. I can’t imagine the skill and patience it must take to learn how to “draw” with a needle on a canvas as unsteady as the human body. I’m so out of practice I can barely draw a circle on a piece of paper!
Tattoos aren’t as taboo as they used to be, but they still don’t get the appreciation they deserve as a valid art form. I’ve been trying to think of a way to include tattoo art in the next edition of AGDM — any ideas? Would an interview with a tattoo artist be of any interest to you? I’d appreciate any feedback, as well as seeing photos of your own tattoos.
