So this is a first… my good friend asked me if I could help her cover up an old tattoo with her children’s names. Why not?

The thing is, print design is permanent but sadly your kick ass design (aka flyer) can end up in the recycling bin or worse, a puddle (true story) and web is about as permanent as my current hair colour (RED!) so an opportunity to see something on skin was too good to pass up.

Here’s what I did up … simple enough, right?



Jodie found a great tattoo studio in Halifax called Adept Tattoos and I tagged along for the show. I must say, I was really impressed and not at all intimidated. Look at how much fun she’s having:

As you can see, a lotus was added by the artist during the consultation because she needed to cover the former tattoo. On the left, you can see a glimpse of it before the flower was filled in.

Anddddd voila! Hot off the press.

As for myself, a temporary tattoo (check out these) is probably as close as I will get to inking myself but I must say, I was pretty impressed with the studio and enjoyed the experience.

Thanks Jodie!
