This Monday, let's jump right into it:
Yep, that's my new inner lip tattoo. I've fancied one for a while now, but originally wanted to get the acronym DILLIGAF? which stands for "does it look like I give a fuck?". But then I was like "um, Melina, let's get real a moment, you so do give a fuck, like it or not'." I thought that Love contained the same sense of independence as DILLIGAF? minus the hostility, more free-spirited but less rebellious. If that makes any sense. It's sort of a reminder to speak the truth and try to be a better person every day. <3
This wasn't nearly as terrible as I imagined, actually the least painful of any tattoo I've gotten.
That's the lovely Kendra at Indelible Ink who is a thrift wizard in addition to tattoo artist (note amazing clock on wall).
Did you notice my Hello Kitty clip? This is my first attempt at teasing my own hair. (you'll meet the yellow boots soon.)
and voila! I heart hidden tattoos because they remind me of an amazing movie called The Pillow Book, a must-see for tattoo artists and writers alike. Til next time,
