So here is my Bill Murray in all his regal glory.  Second session, one more to go!(: Steve Payne painted the original portrait and Tim Phelps stabbed his version into my skin.  Bowling Green, Ky at Age of Reason Tattoo.  

Holy fuckballs!

She herself is a haunted house. She does not possess herself; her ancestors sometimes come and peer out of the windows of her eyes and that is very frightening. She has the mysterious solitude of ambiguous states; she hovers in a no-man’s land between life and death, sleeping and waking.

I have a love/hate relationship with tattoo artists, too. The first tattoo artist I visited in Austin was strangely hostile when I walked into her shop, though she was a little nicer to me as soon as she saw my bad tattoo. I couldn’t shake her initial hostility, so I canceled my appointment after a month passed without a drawing. She went on a Facebook rampage about a week later, because someone broke into her shop and she just *knew* the culprit was someone who had canceled an appointment. I felt bad for her, but I also thought to myself, “Oh, honey. I’m fairly certain people only cancel appointments with you because you’re moody.” 
A few other tattoo artists have been nice via e-mail, but they either took months to respond, they wanted me to laser the tattoo, or they were about to move. The current artist I’m working with is super-duper nice, but I *am* getting the “I don’t want to do this tattoo anymore” vibe from him. I don’t know what to think. It’s only been a month, and I know many artists have a waiting period of six months to a year, but I wasn’t expecting to wait longer than two weeks for the drawing. I don’t know. I don’t want to be a jerk; I just really want my tattoo! ;)
