I got the new tattoo!
And I got my previous one touched up- the outline fixed and the butterfly color’s changed a bit.
It was, honestly, one of the most painful experiences of my life. I learned the wrist is an extremely painful place for me when it comes to tattoos apparently. I’m hoping it isn’t going to need touched up because I’m not sure I can go through that again.
It’s caused a bit of turmoil in the system, which surprises me.
The fox/butterfly tattoo didn’t cause any turmoil at all- if anything, it sort of brought us more together.
But there’s something about this new one that’s causing issues.
It was made clear when we figured out the design that the treble clef is for our love of music in general, not just Midori’s piano playing. And the rune Algiz is not just a religious related symbol for Roms. We’ve purposefully designed both our tattoos to have multiple meanings because we are a multiple system.
I am sad that we seem to have failed on this account- especially since I was so involved in figuring out the design and location.
Here are some pictures for you though. Keep in mind they were taken with a crummy phone camera before they’ve healed. Once they are good and healed, I’ll take some better ones.
