for love

You're all I want when the water runs deep,
You're all I need now I cry my soul to sleep.

Many moons ago, when young Miss S was very young, I used to rock her to sleep to this song. I had a tattoo done about 12 years ago with that particular verse on it and was never overly happy with it - a good idea poorly executed. Last week I finally had it covered up - it took 5 hours. I kept the same verse but had the whole tattoo covered with this new one...and now we're working on the rest of the "sleeve".

Oh, and I'm back. Obviously.

Also, in other words "double oh"..click here:

Makes me think of some of the scary shows we watch on TV.

Great shot - good to hear you have finally got around to covering up an old tat' for something you prefer - very grown up!!!
May 22nd, 2018  
A full sleeve! Adventurous.
May 22nd, 2018  
This sounds very painful.
May 22nd, 2018  
Very cool - the image and the tat. Fav.

Great shot of a beautiful tattoo

You are very obviously back. No need to try and work out whose work this is. I dread to think what you have been doing with that gun, but I approve of the lyrics and can see that the cover up makes a more appealing design than you started with.

Love that ink, awesome beginning to a sleeve! Nice that you retained the original memory, too... I’d say nice to have you back but I’ve been so absent myself :( but heck it’s always nice to have you back, so yes.

@graemestevens Quite right.
May 23rd, 2018  
Great contrast. Well done.

@haskar Thanks very much :)
@kerosene Well shucks, thanks :)
@helenhall It's only a cheap plastic toy...even throwing it at a passing stranger wouldn't do much...
@dh Thanks very much :)
@365karly1 Thank you kindly :)
@yaorenliu It was...but worth it...
@gamelee I may regret it at some point...
@alinz I know...it took me by surprise as well ;)
May 23rd, 2018  
Ohhh, we need to see that tat in progress. Any 'before' shots?
