Recently got some more ink, this time adding color to the lotus flower on the front of my right arm. Also, there was an empty patch on the back that I was trying to figure out what to fill it in with, so I ended up adding more clouds and another lotus blossom. My tattoo artist completed all of the outlining and shading work, but we ran out of time to color all of the flowers, so I have to go back to finish up the coloring in a few of weeks.
Since I started my Tattoo Spree of 2011, I’ve been doing things like Googling “motorcycle schools” and eying Triumph bikes on the street. I’m pretty sure that I’m in the throes of a full-blown, early on-set middle-life crisis.
