Dogwood - Tattoowise
The framed camera tattoo was existing, done by Luke a few months ago - today we added three cardinals and dogwood flowers. After a long time sitting, I had to throw in the towel so the inner arm is not colored yet - a large flying cardinal and another set of flowers and some sky to go! I'm loving the work done so far.
This is the new tattoo I got yesterday. I'll be going back for some touch-up in a monthish, but this is pretty done. The design is from a block print one of Karlee's friends (Kara) did, that we also used for the wedding invitations.
