Tuscon Trip and Tattoo Expo

Monday, April 02, 2012

Hubby and I went to Tuscon this last weekend, partly to celebrate my upcoming birthday and partly to go to the tattoo convention. I have one tattoo that I have had for a number of years..a lizard leaning on a golf club with a ball teed on his tail.

I have been thinking about a new tattoo for some time. I thought of one of my biggest sources of inspiration and I came up with my little Yorkie, Spanky. This little guy has a porta shunt problem (genetic defect) AND AS A RESULT HE HAS AN ENLARGED HEART, HAS TO EAT A SPECIAL DIET. Spanky will play ball with you until he just has to stop. He loves to swim, is fiercely loyal, trusting, intelligent, and does not know the meaning of QUIT! He weighs just over three pounds and truly believes that he is the size of a pit bull. Speed, tenacity, hard-headed, yup we were made for each other.

Because Spanky is ill, when I go for a ride on the bike he has to stay home. Motion really bothers him and he wants to go with you in the car but he gets car sick. Now he is on my arm and can go with me in spirit when I go for a ride.

The tattoo artist was a gentleman from East LA. He does great on portraits and he really enjoyed doing the tat. Thanks Pewee!
