A marriage of sorts
(Tilt your head about 15 degrees to the right to get the proper angle.)
In just twelve hours the process of this image being permanently inked into my lower back will have begun. Gawd, that sounds dramatic. But yeah, it feels like a big deal. A good part of me knows not to panic because I've been really thorough about the whole process. First had the idea when I sat Vipassana last fall, got my sweet artist-friend Sarah to spend a lot of time working on the design at the beginning of January and have had the image posted up next to my bed and have carried another copy around with me in my daybook since. Did quite a bit of asking around before I found Urban Primitive and Leah, who's the artist who's doing the deed.
I can't type a moment longer. I'll let you know how it goes. Do you think I can knit while I'm lying on my belly, being drawn on?
ps. Thank you all so much for your wrist cuff suggestions/comments - I have some pretty great ideas for future designs now. This particular pair is about 75% done and I'm pretty pleased with 'em.
