Flower Tattoo

May 4th, 2011

My darling husband tattooed me last night.  Thank goodness he is fast!  That was pretty darn sharp, and I can’t believe how much it still zings today.  Not very conducive for chores, but thankfully we have boxes of nitrile gloves at hand.  My strawberries and raspberries are in cold, dark storage, so hopefully this hand is healed enough by this weekend to do some serious digging.  Cuz I sure ain’t doing it today.

2011′s baby chicks are doing great, they just arrived. They have their own dedicated shed this year, which is working beautifully.  I am SO pleased with the set up, as the shed contains enough floor space for them and for feed storage as it is divided in half.

Our Amish neighbours, who do not have the ease of using heat lamps (no electricity) have rigged up a propane heated halved oil drum for their chicks, and so far so good.  Much nicer than having them in the kitchen by the wood stove, as was done before.

Really savouring every second of their fleeting cuteness.  (And I’ve booked them in for processing already, not leaving it to the last minute this year, no sir!)


Thank you, honey.

    Beautiful!!! My hubby finally had time to start his first new piece on me in two years but because he is so busy I have been stuck with just an outline for almost 2 months!

  12. Mel says:

    It’s beautiful! I found my foot and hand swelled way more than any other area when tattooed, but the swelling went away after the second day each time.

    Frey Chicks? I was in Peel Seed yesterday and people were coming in to collect their orders and you could hear all the chicks.

    Dan – I’ve had another session on my back, we’re making progress. Drawn up the bottom cover-up part, I am sure we’ll chip away at it all summer. I really wanted something that started and finished in one sit. And man, the back really sucks for me, pain wise!

    Swelling has definitely gone down, though I’ve not been easy on it. Planted 100 strawbs and 50 rasp cane yesterday, oy, it was PULSING with pain!

    Bruce – yup Frey’s chicks! Our ducks and geese are coming from Performance, I wish I could drive there to pick them up but it is just too far with the kids.

  15. Beautiful tat, and even moreso being from your hub! I would imagine it would hurt like ca-razy on the hand!!

    totally unrelated to your post…

    Happy mother’s day to one of the most inspiring mommies I know (well, know through the internet!).

    Did you try the Soothing Skin Ointment? Curious to hear what you think!

  19. Laura says:

    Beautiful! Dont know if this is any help,but I find a couple drops lavendar oil in a basin of water takes out the swelling and the burn a little,doesnt harm the tattoo either…was really useful when I got my wrist done and it swelled up so much I couldnt bend it for a day! Sure you probably know that already though…looks amazing by the way!
