Phoenix Rising

Becky and I have been seriously considering getting more tattoos. I only have one on my ankle and she has a little one on her back. I got mine when I was 18 on complete impulse while hanging out with my friend, Monica, one random Wednesday night. She talked me into it because she knew if I didn't do it right then, I would probably chicken out. She was totally right...I would have!

I watch a lot of LA Ink and I love the work that Kat Von D and her associates do! I would love to hop up in her chair and let her use me as a canvas. But, since I can't afford the air fare or the cost of one of her pieces, I will settle for whatever artists good ol' Michiana has hidden in it's midwestern red neckery. I DO NOT want to go into a shop and pick something off the wall this time. I want something designed or at least more professionally crafted then pictures of Calvin (of Calvin and Hobbes) pissing on something, etc.

I am really drawn (no pun intended) to trees and birds. I was thinking about getting a blackbird, sparrow or phoenix done. The picture I posted is an example of something I was looking at for ideas. I am still in the beginning phases of settling on an idea. Any suggestions would be awesome. I am ready for some INK!!
