go big or go home

he did it!!so, justin got his tattoo started. the story behind it: he wanted to get all the flowers from my wedding bouquet. so the only one done now is the stargazer lily in the center and by far the largest flower in the tattoo and in my bouquet. those are also traditional japanese waves done in the old style of drawing (i guess). he'll need to do a few more sittings before it is finished. he'll get the inside of his arm done (double ouch!) with an orchid and some calla lilies coming up from his elbow to his upper inner arm. he's also getting color done at the end. so it's going to look pretty cool when it's all said and done. but what do you think? :)

why the wedding bouquet? i think it's a great idea but I was just wondering what inspired him. it takes quite a man to put a lot of flowers all over his arm! i have wanted to get a tatoo for years but keep backing out - mostly because i can't commit to a design that i will have to live with forever! (I'm a chicken - I know)
