The most exciting part is that it fills the big, boring spot on my back so perfectly. It may seem a bit odd but I really feel a lot better seeing that spot full, almost like it completes me a bit. I just could never decided what I wanted there until this idea finally came to me.
The birds are blue wrens (aka superb fairywren‘s, which is the coolest bird name ever) which are one of my favourite of all the birds (and I freaking love birds). I have such find memories of watching them as a kid as well as now when they flit around my mum’s backyard, feeding their little babies or teaching them how to bathe in the bird bath. One of my fondest memories as a kid was the time a male blue wren flew into the window of our house and nearly knocked himself out so my parents put him in an old bird cage to recuperate and I was absolutely fascinated for the hour or so we had him. I’ve always felt bad that the females are such a boring brown so I asked Ash to make my girl one extra pretty with little eyelashes for my tattoo, and she did an awesome job.
I can’t wait to get it coloured, though that may be a while off yet, but for now I am just super excited to have the tattoo I’ve been wanting for ages!
