Tattoo Tuesday: Beat It

This week's Tattoo Tuesday is the perfect cure to warm your heart and add some colour to your day on this cool and gloomy rainy day.

This week's tattoo starts not with a picture of the tattoo, but my favourite picture of my big sister and I. Ain't it just adorable if I do say so myself?

She is a great big sister. Always has been. Look at her, feeding me the beater to lick so that I don't miss out. My big sis has always looked after me, given me advice, helped me out, lent me lots of stuff, shouted me when I had no money, kept me company, given me endless hours of entertainment and paved the way. I know that no matter what, she is and will always be there for me and that I can go to her for anything. ANYTHING. And she will be there.

So I wanted to get a tattoo to show how much I love her and appreciate her and know that she is always there for me and that I don't take it for granted. I get that it might not always be easy, or fun and I wanted her to know that I knew. And this picture. It's my favourite picture of the two of us ever. Even if it was the only picture of us ever taken I think I would be ok with that. That's how much I love it.

So I used it for inspiration when coming up with my tattoo design and after a few genius refinements by Mimsy, the finished product is something that makes me doubly happy. It's feminine, and cute, and colourful and kitshy cool. But most of all, everytime I look at it it reminds me of this picture. And that makes me smile.

It's on the inside of my right bicep and I won't lie. This one REALLY hurt. But it was totally worth it. It's an old school mixer, with my sister's initials in the love heart and the banner reads 'you let me lick the beaters'.

This is definately one of my most favourite tattoos.

You know I love this tattoo so much, & it's not even on me. It seriously is the coolest tattoo I have ever seen.

Sheri Bomb said...

Haha good point Tony and yeah, I'm tough so watch it :P Think of the shading a bit like water colour, you paint an area once lightly and you get a light colour but go over it a couple of times and it gets darker. If that makes sense?

Aww Mrs BC, thank you. You always leave the best comments ♥ I do really love this tattoo too. I'll let you touch it at the next blog meet if you want :P

Naaaaaaaaaaaaaaaw. LOVE it. It reminds me of my sister and how much I adore her. Not that I would tattoo my inner bicep for her. I'm much too much of a wimp. :P

Sheri Bomb said...

Haha Suger, it DID hurt! But ya know, totally worth it and all that :P
