The Day Luthor and Nicole Got Tattoos...

I got mine first but since this is my blog, Nic gets the first pictures...(click thumbnails to see the whole picture)

This is the basic sketch of Nic's. She's a Scorpio and wanted a scorpion

Our tattoo artist, Rob, at work starting Nic's tattoo.

This is Nic's with the actual tattoo part outlined. Nic was in pain.

Nic's tattoo completed. It's kind of swollen, so the details aren't apparent yet. I'll get another picture soon.

And now for the star of our show...

Me in the chair, shortly after Rob started.

Rob at work on my arm.

Me with basic outline complete and some of the colouring done.

Me done, looking unhappy. Not sure why.

Mine all done. How BEAUTIFUL!

Couple of things:

Rob was just awesome. He was really cool. He joked around with us and answered any questions we had. He was very professional and made the experience really worth while. If you live in the Windsor area Rob is the guy to see. You can contact him at:

Everyone had me really freaked out about the pain and, much to my surprise(because I'm a giant wimp), it really didn't hurt too bad. Don't get me wrong, there was pain but it wasn't like it was a horrible horrbile thing and it certainly wouldn't stop me from getting another one someday down the road. Nic was in more then a little pain, but I think that had more to do with her being in an uncomfortable position for the duration of the tattoo.

Marc decided against getting his today, but I think after seeing Nic and I get it done he really wants to get it done now. Sam(Nic's husband), who really didn't like the idea of Nic getting a tattoo, was even talking about getting some ink somewhere down the road. Rob was just that great. It was a really really wonderful experience.
