{Inked} 2.0

Last year, I shared photos I’d taken to document the process of my mother getting a tattoo. A year and a half after getting inked for the first time, my little mother decided it was time to get a second tattoo! So once again, we made a trip to No Regrets Tattoo Emporium in Memphis, consulted with Joe Stamp (who’d done her first tattoo,) and made the appointment.

Mom’s first tattoo was a Celtic cross on her wrist. This time, she’d chosen a particular style of a Star of Bethlehem to be placed on top of her forearm. Joe did a wonderful job translating the artwork mom had chosen, and we think the tattoo came out beautifully! I wish I had done a better job documenting our time with Joe doing the tattoo, but maybe I’ll do better next time one  of us goes in for some work 😉
