One Tattoo Outline Down, One Outline to Go

I finally got one of my thighs tattoos outlined last week!  Shane B at Nonstop Art in Birmingham, Alabama took my idea to a whole new level.  I couldn't be more happy with it and it's not even finished yet!  I'm getting another piece done on my other thigh next month and I'm looking forward to see if he can outdo himself.  He's set his own bar pretty high.

Side note: I debated about whether or not to put my tattoos on here for everyone to see.  No, I don't want anyone copying my tattoos, although they say imitation is the most sincere form of flattery.  However, a good tattoo artist would never copy another artist's work.  Plus, tattoos are one of the best forms of self-expression, so why would you copy someone else?  That's my 2 cents about it.  I appreciate everyone's insight on my post about tattoos last week!  It was interesting to hear viewpoints about the subject.

  7. Looks awesome!!! I am really loving thigh tattoos. I'm so glad you shared this on the blog. It's beautiful. Can't wait to see it finished. If I could figure out what I wanted I would get a tattoo, but I just can't decide on one thing as my first.
