>tattoo shortlist

>Without giving too much away I scored myself some gratia body art for my birthday. The boyfriend and I like to pass experiential birthday ideas, something lacking in physicality and adding to life’s great experiences. There’s no rush with this gift, although I do predict that the longer I leave my arm blank the harder it will be to inflict the excruciating needle action onto self.

A fab dude that lived on Koh Chang, Thailand gave me some key advice about imposing ink on your skin. Lord suggested a copy of the art go everywhere with me, if there is a hint of boredom, distate or dissatisfaction, change it or chuck it. He told me to imagine it on different body parts, where does this piece fit best and does it speak your language. Really love it! LOVE IT! Sounds all logical but I guess that the spontaneous scenarios where tatts happen are not always this thought out.

At this stage I have narrowed it down to the following options that could change any minute depending on my mood:

mosaic tatt

watercolour abstract as created by Amanda Wachob (some of them are tres cool)

erin smith typeface art…(I just have a massive artistic crush on her style and talent and any excuse to commission something personal from a local would be special. No examples as yet.

sans the Rat.

organic chemistry equation, I’m into nomenclature, it’s the language of matter and the carbon hydrogen relationship is fundamental to everything that I feel, see, taste and smell.

My mate said keep it black and white…the jury is still out on that one. I think she has a point but I really love the watercolour.

thanks for reading, nat
