you are my sunshine


My mama & I got matching tattoos! I never thought I'd see the day :] I got my first two tattoos behind my parents' backs when I was 18 because they always seemed against it. A couple years ago, however, my mom seemed interested in getting one. So we began figuring out & designing a concept, picked an artist whose style we loved, & set a date for when my mom would be in town. What better place than Portland for my mom to get her first tattoo? ;]

The original sketch & the stencil placed on my shoulder cap.

I got this little heart tattoo as well. It's the letter B (for Burton!) when tilted ;] I'm such a sap!

It's been almost 9 years since my last tattoo, but I'm happy to have another on my canvas. I'm sure these new ones won't be my last, either ;] This was such a wonderful experience I got to share with my mom & I'll be sharing more photos from her visit soon. But for now, I'm happy to cross another goal for 2014 off my list! Happy Monday, folks!

    1. Thanks, Fee :] I think I should've been a tattoo artist instead of an art teacher. They make so much money!
