Tattoos and Teddy Bears

So instead of meeting with the Arvada Knitters this Tues. I went and got me some new ink!!! Is this cool or what? I am in love with my new tattoo! It is on my left shoulder and not too big, but just big enough. This is my third tattoo, but my first that can be seen if I choose, well I suppose if I wore a backless shirt you could see my dragon, but I don't. My good friend Mariah's boyfriend Jim did it for me at Bound by Design. I highly recommend him if you are thinking of getting a tattoo.
And on to more cuddly matters. I finally finished the teddy bear for my bf's dd's 3rd birthday. On time in fact...well I was binding off the sleeve of the sweater mere minutes before leaving for the party. He is a cutie! I am pretty happy with how he turned out despite the pattern difficulties. I really have no idea how that head was supposed to go together but I did my best to figure it out. I did trim a bit extra after felting him. The pattern (in Knitted Toys by Fiona somethingorother) didn't call for felting, but I wanted him to be a bit more durable and hopefully pill less since he is merino.
And here he is in his snappy bright pink and sparkly sweater. I guess he should be a she, but I always think of teddies as boys. He will just be a metrosexual teddy bear I guess.

What I meant to say, is If I was a tatooing kindof girl, I would totally copy you! I LOVE IT! I'm off to San Diego (tattoo heaven) tomorrow, and I just might have to go get one somewhere hidden.

Where is that place exactly? Somewhere Hidden? Heheh. Nobody's seeing this body in a bikini any more...

See you when I get back!
