A Freaky Coincidence

So last night I finally counted all the stars on my leg. In a twist of fate the number is exactly 42. How cool is that?

Happy Mothers Day!

Yesterday being mothers day I decided it was the perfect time for that family tattoo I had been planning. My idea was constellations representing the kids and my husband. It fits perfectly with the Lion King thing we have going here. (Long story-see older posts) A big plus is that DH's sign is Leo. What better to go right above Mufasa's head? Here is some of the work in progress. (my sister came with and took the pics)

Chris of Atlantic Studio hard at work. D and I had a blast joking around with him. He made the experience fun. Not all tattooists are good at that part of the job. (some personalities just mesh together better than others too) He was very cool.

This is my DD's sign, Virgo. (left side of calf) OK I took these photos so excuse the bad quality. It isn't easy snapping pics of my own leg with a crappy camera.

DS's sign, Aquarius. (wrapping around back of calf)

And DH's sign, Leo. (on right of calf above previous Mufasa head, also showing part of Aquarius)

It probably isn't technically correct, not all those constellations are in the sky at the same time. And not all stars may be represented. However with tattoos sometimes it is about the representation, not the technicalities that is most important. I am very pleased with the results. He did a fabulous job.
