:eek:

How in the world did you sit through all that?

It looks nice. But no way I'd ever go through that, unless under anesthesia.

:laughing:

What a great tattoo and some great work too. They really are addictive. I have one I did several years ago and I've been itching to get another, and of my babies too. But I also have to get just the right picture of all of them.

I'm looking forward to the healed up shot.

LOL it only took 2hrs which is pretty fast considering all the detail involved. My tattoo artist is great though, she is very swift at tattooing without compromising quality at all. She's amazing! She also had Hot Rod playing for part of the time then my brother switched it to a Comedian Act so that helped pass the time and take my mind off it too. Another thing that helped too is Bailey could sense when I started tensing up a bit because it was starting to burn so she'd just start asking random questions to keep a conversation going between us which would also take my mind off the pain (it does help that we've known eachother a while and share a common interest of course! LOL)

Beautiful tattoo :thumbs up Ethel wants to get one of Iggy, but I'm talking her out of it right now, she is still young and I don't want her to regret it when she is older. Right now she has two, one being paw prints running up her ankle, she's had it 3 years and is now ho-humming that she wishes it was done differently.

Would love to see yours when it is healed.

I found the photos of the Cannington races, Ethel didn't get many good ones, I think that these might be of your guys, I try to distinguish facial features :sad:

The tatoo is amazing! I'm not into them myself, but still, it looks really neat. And Cricket is adorable. Can't wait to see her next winter at the races.
