Hi! Happy late Sunday over here. :) My weekend sped by, to say the least. As you know, yesterday I got my first tattoo! I knew it was going to be painful in some way, but I didn't know exactly what to anticipate. It did hurt, but it wasn't that bad over all! I think the whole thing took a little over an hour and I am so pleased with it! It looks exactly how I wanted it to, and the placement is perfect as well. I went to Spider Murphy's Tattoo in San Rafael, and Heather was my artist. If you are in the area, I recommend this shop. It was a wonderful first tattooing experience!

I'm still healing, obviously, and my arm was really sore today. But I just get so excited every time I look down and see my little moth! So it was well worth it. :) Did I mention that my mom got a tattoo too? Yeah! She was the one who went with me because she wanted to get one too as a sort of mother-daughter thing to do before I leave for college. Also this doubled as my nineteenth birthday present, and I'm just fine with that. Eeeeps! What do you guys think? I'm so very happy with him and it will be lovely having this little moth travel with me for the rest of my life. xx

  5. Oh my gosh that tattoo is adorable! That really makes me want to get one! (If only I wasn't afraid of needles.) Is there a meaning behind it? (You can totally answer that on your q&a video if you want. :))

  11. Eeeek omigosh Elanor that tattoo is so fabulous! It's so cute, what an adorable little moth? I must know, does he have a name? If he doesn't, you should give him one, 'cause he's totally deserving of an awesome one. :D I like the spot you put him on, too. So nice!

    Ohh, and that necklace you're wearing is just way to neat~ it reminds me of those spiky cactuses.

  14. That skirt is gorgeous and the juxtaposition of your necklace against the lace of your skirt is great. I agree too that your tattoo placement is nice.

  15. I honestly believe your tattoo is one of my most favorite tattoos EVER. I kid you not. I'm obsessed. I love the moth, the placement, the colors, EVERYTHING! It is absolutely perfect and if I were one to get a tattoo- it would have been something exactly like that. Beautiful! (and so sweet that your mom got a tattoo too! what did she get?!)

    You look stunning by the way; I always love the way you accessorize :).
