    Even unfinished, it looks awesome. In fact, sometimes I like to see a tatoo that knows how to not be so overpowering; and thus if I were wearing that very thing on my chest, I’d call it done.

    The poor girl says on her flickr site that her tattoo may not be blogged. I think this qualifies as breaking that request. Shame!

    See, what happened was that I blogged it, then BoingBoing blogged it (they get a TON of traffic), and so the poor lady was getting a lot of comments, many negative, so she asked that folks not blog it anymore via the description of the photo. She hasn’t asked me to remove this post, so I think it’s grandfathered in. There are a lot of disrespectful people who like to share their opinions online, and I’m sorry that she had to get a taste of that.
