Today's gal wanted this rectangle of Celtic knotwork on her back's shoulderblade, and I got cranky! I told her how tired I am of women who hide their tattoos from themselves as well as everyone else. I truly believe that to get your money's worth you need to be able to see your tattoo without a mirror! "Oh, but I work in Corporate America," she said. So, sly me, I placed the stencil in several places, angling for her to put it where she did, on the top of her shoulder, draped across like an epaulette, a completely discrete place but MOST importantly she can look down and enjoy it. In light bright colors it is like a lace antimacassar gracing her shoulder. A most feminine and artistic enhancement in an entirely unusual placement.
A delicate rectangle that drapes on the skin like fine lace. The point of transition between the intent and the actualization.
