Saturday was just about as close to perfect as I could imagine.
I got a tattoo, we went to the zoo, we wandered the Loop (I bought a book!), saw Jane Eyre at the Tivoli, and drank frappuccinos and people-watched.
Doesn’t get much better than that, does it?
The tattoo in question:
Isn’t he a cutie? I love him! He’s supposed to be reminiscent of Othello, without, y’know, “being” Othello. Jeff took that photo yesterday (Sunday), so it’s still obviously pretty rough looking. I can also tell that he’s going to need a touch-up – his right ear didn’t take, and we may want to change the shading a bit. But isn’t he adorable??? I love that attitude. 😀
The placement is really significant to me, as well. As I may have mentioned, Othello has a proclivity for walking back and forth on my head at night, sitting on my hair, clawing at my neck, and ultimately settling down on my left shoulder – he’s my “parrot cat”.
Oh, and the best bit of getting tattooed back there is it barely hurt at all. The bit down nearer my neck (his tail) stung a bit, but I had no throbbing or itching or tightness or anything. Definitely the easiest tattoo yet 🙂
