In Omnia Paratus: Done for Now

Day one: Achey
October 2010

This is what my side tattoo looked like the last time I showed y'all.
It was a day after I'd had the first session and I was feeling exceptionally badass. It hurt a lot but I had endured.

In early January I received an email from my Auckland-based artist (Erin Chance) saying she was going to be working down in Wellington in late January and did I want to have another session? get some colour added? I jumped at the chance and on the 21st I had the colour added.

Itchy as a motherfucker
January 2011

I sent a few emails to Auckland to try and arrange a time for the final session - to have the shading finished on the camera but the flowers and the banner and the text are all done. It was a lot of back and forth and ultimately we put the appointment-search on hold.

I was going to wait until it was complete before posting this but ... I saw on the Sacred Tattoo facebook page that Erin is heading off overseas in June. There is no way I will be able to make it up to Auckland before then.

In Omnia Paratus. Done for now.

Thankfully I like the camera being outline-only.
It seems like this is how it will remain for the foreseeable future.

Erin is planning on coming back to Auckland from time to time and I'm sure it will be finished eventually - but I love it as it is.


  1. It's such a beautiful tattoo. It looks amazing.

  2. Thank you! I love it so much.
