Inked Girls: Cat Sandiego
Myself in a sentence: How could anyone but the least interesting person on the internet possibly fit into one sentence?
The design and themes of my tattoos: lettering
My favorite tattoo and the story behind it: My favorite tattoo is the one spelled out in a crescent moon shape under my right nipple. I got it with my first girlfriend when she wanted to get her nipple pierced. It says "llename de amor [3" [fill me with love, in Spanish]. She translated it for me because she's Colombian. All I could think was "damn, a pair of lesbians com into the tattoo parlor, both wanting work done on their boobs... it was a good day for the artist..." It was also the first day my ex was meeting my family. She was in so much pain after getting her nipple pierced that we stopped off at a gas station where her cousins worked so they could smoke her up and numb it a bit. When we got to my family's home my mom went in for a hug and crushed the piercing a bit... my ex told me later that it took every ounce of self control she had not to yelp...
My next tattoo: My next tattoo is a pressed flower on my back. My sister and I had wanted to get tattoos for a while and my cousin is a tattoo artist in CT. We made a road trip of it one weekend and our cousin inked us in the same day... neither of us wanted to drive home after spending 8 hours in the parlor and both in serious need of some tylenol... or something stronger...
