Seahorse and sweater

Ok, first things first... a classic look... t-shirt, jeans, and a tattoo! When I posted this picture on my Facebook, my friend Julie referred to me as a "Redhead without a cause, if you will." Bwahahaha!
Yep, I went in to the Ink Lab last night to talk prices, size, etc. about my tattoo (which I have wanted for years, FYI, this was not on a whim!) and wound up getting it right then and there. No fanfare, no friends, no photos. Awesome. I'll show you guys a close-up once it's done healing, but you get the idea! Sorry, mom! This seahorse I drew is the first thing that I made a screen of when I first started screenprinting on my own (like 5-6 years ago?) I've wanted him tattooed for a while and when they started selling my shirts at the Walker, I decided I had to get him as a little reminder to believe in my silly little dreams.

I found this in the coat section of a thrift store but it's just a wool knit, so I vote it's made for indoor wear.
 Glasses - Prada
Cardigan - thrifted vintage Hark
T-shirt - Target
Jeans - Earnest Sewn
Shoes - thrifted Target

I've never bought Target shoes before because I am a shoe snob, but when I found these brand new Xhilaration shoes with the original tags still on at the thrift store for $3 - I couldn't resist!
Bye kids! I'm still spazzing out a bit over the tattoo! It's going to take some getting used to but I don't think I'll ever get tired of looking at it!

Congrats on the new tattoo. It looks perfect on you.

I am jealous of that coat. And I don't know that I've been jealous of anything camel in my life!

And by coat I mean indoor-coat, of course.

Thanks for dropping off the blazer. I Love it, it makes my waist look tiny :).
Awesome Tattoo! Love sea horses because the male carries the babies. Seriously, how cool is that? I have been drooling on this oh so pretty sea horse cuff (http://www.etsy.com/listing/62485284/seahorse-vintage-style-brass-cuff). She sells her products at the walker too!

Love the new tattoo! And coat that's not a coast but an indoor jacket.

I especially love what your tattoo stands for! Good on you.

Marie said...

Your picture yesterday must've been reversed - it was on a different arm! :) Very cute.

Futurelint said...

Yeah, the picture yesterday was just taken with photobooth on my Macbook, so it came out backwards! I didn't even notice!

Alison said...

Awesome Tattoo! I love it, and it's so personal.

Anna said...

when i saw your post last night somehow I KNEW it was going to be a seahorse... (i've seen your screenprinted tee before and i guess in the back of my mind i pictured it as a tattoo). it's so very cute!

EvaNadine said...

this just scratches the itch ive had to get some new work done. got the pictures ready to go, just need to pick a spot...

Ashley J said...

Congrats on finally biting the bullet and getting the new tattoo!

Nicola said...

Neat! And you can colour him in when you're bored, then wash it off and try different colours the next time!

I really like that coat. Maybe it could be a cooler weather coat. You know, when you don't really need to wear a coat, but you've got one that's so amazing that you have to wear it anyway?

Kimberley said...

Right on. I ♥ seahorses.

DaniellaBella said...

It's perfect! Absolutely perfect! I love the tattoos that you've wanted forever but then end up happening so quickly!

my name is lauren. said...

your little sea horse is lovely. you are so much more brave than i am....i don't know if i could ever get an arm tattoo, but i really do love them and it's especially cute on you!

Michelle said...

I love it when a tattoo means something to the person getting it. It's beautiful!
