Tattoo update (and now public post) 
24th-Apr-2008 10:09 am
So, after some deliberation since my last post (sorry, friends-locked) on this, I've decided to go with the following image:

I decided that I found the hand of Eris in the middle to be a little distracting, and I like the pure geometry of the rest of the mandala. Same location (the upper left deltoid, aka under t-shirt sleeve), same size (~2.5 inches in diameter). I punched the mandala through Vector Magic to get an SVG version so all my future experiments with the image can be nice and smooth, regardless of resolution. For instance:

However, I still have some questions about the tattoo remaining:
  1. Where is a good, inexpensive but not cheap (get the difference?) place in NYC if I were to do it?Q. 4 from original post
  2. I have freckles on these spots, how will they interfere? Will they simply be obliterated by the black ink?
  3. amalthya recommended going towards the end of the summer, as getting it will ban me from swimming for some time. I'm guessing I shouldn't go there with a sunburn, but if I have a tan, how will that affect things?
  4. Are there any questions I should be asking that I am not?

Thanks all!

I've heard good things about Red Rocket Tattoo.

Wow. That looks good. Especially the artist "Budda" who has a lot of black geometric line art examples.

If you want to take a road trip this summer, I can take you to the place I went to in Philadelphia, which is internationally known, not expensive, and very high quality :)

Oh, btw, if you need a place to stay in NYC, don't hesitate to gimme a ring. We have an airbed and some floor space.
