Hey Leslie,

I wouldn't add colour, you can always have that done later if you are not happy with it, but it's hard to take out when you are not happy with the colour, if you know what I mean? That's what they recommended me when I had my dragonfly tattoo. Now I have it only black and I am happy with that.

Uhmm.... let me see, I would say stem to the side... pointing to your shoulder...

Anyway, we started talking and I explained why I wanted to get a tattoo and Heath and etc. She said, "Oh my God, when Heath Ledger died, I cried for two days." I took this as a good sign of being on the same wavelength


Leslie, I think you're in good hands with her and the date you'll get it done adds to this feeling. I really believe this is meant to be. Go for it!

I'd say no colors, stem up. Exactly as it is in the right pic.


Still thinking about mine...

I found a red maple leaf on the ground today that looked just like the tattoo - only remarkable because I live in South Florida where there are very few maple trees and the leaves don't usually turn.  It looked just like a fall leaf from up north.



Up here we have "leaf peepers." Maybe you found a "peeping leaf"!

I am pretty much decided on stem up (right pic) but flipping it 180 degrees (sideways).

Hannah is going to help me do some photoshopping after dinner so I can try to see how it would look with color, without, different orientations, etc. I'll post pics.

Huh?  ???



Peeping leaf... a leaf that made the trip from the north to peep at other leaves down south....

Oh never mind, bad joke.

i'm happy for you Leslie!  Do you like it?  It turned out really awesome.  Maybe the artist could touch it up a bit with some shading.  I think Heath's had more of that.   Have you decided not to add color?  Way cool Leslie!  yay

I decided to wait on the color. As everyone here said to me, I can always add that later. Jenn (the artist) said if I was at all ambivalent about the color, I should wait. So I did.

As for shading, Jenn thought that Heath's tattoo had probably faded a bit, since it was on his hand and exposed to light. She did my in "classic black" (her term) which is what she thought Heath probably had originally. I can go back and get a touch-up if I want. It's on the house (no charge) to get things fixed for the next six months.
