I meant to post before it happened, but I forgot...

I got a new tattoo yesterday!
Oh--I suppose I could wait to post this until I've taken a picture of it. Oh well. I'll create some suspense! Plus, I'll wait until it's not so red and sore.

I thought of this design a while ago and finally went in and did it. I love it. I've been surfing lots of tattoo sites--particularly ones about literary tattoos. I saw many tattoos of peoples' favourite childrens books. Lots of Alice in Wonderland, lots of Where The Wild Things Are, TONS of The Little Prince. Then I had the thought of getting a tattoo of an illustration from...

The Phantom Tollbooth!

Only the greatest kids book ever. And in my googling, I found only a couple of mentions of people talking about PT tattoos--no pictures of anyone who's actually done it. So I thought it would be fairly unusual.

So--I got the book out of the library (my much loved copy is in Vancouver), and found a perfect illustration: it's of Milo, curled up asleep in a giant music score.

And now I have a tattoo of it! On my right side, basically right under where my bra hits.

Picture to come...but anyway, I'm so excited! Yay, tattoos!
