So, I may have made a really impulsive decision to get (yet another) tattoo this past weekend. I mean, the design wasn't impulsive, but making the appointment was kind of a spur-of-the-moment type thing. As usual. I called the shop and Jimmy had a two hour window in between tattoos; couldn't let that opportunity go to waste, right?
Anyway, I came in with these two little guys and asked if Jimmy could get them to flow together:
I found these guys on Pinterest, but I think the original artwork is from someone on Deviantart. Obviously, I didn't want to steal anyone's work, so Jimmy made it his own by changing up a few things. Here is the finished product:
I know I always say this, but I absolutely adore these little foxes, and I could not be happier with the way they turned out!! They took about 2 hours. I feel like this spot was pretty easy, but this is one of my smaller tattoos. The online was a breeze (it took about 45 minutes), and the shading took about 1 hour and 15 minutes. Honestly, my calf was still my most painful tattoo. There were some tender spots (like the very center of my shin), but overall, it was about a 4 out of 10. Maybe a 3.5. The shading was more painful mostly because he had to make sure everything blended together.
There really isn't a story behind this tattoo, other than the fact that the fox is most definitely my spirit animal. I remember reading something a few weeks ago about how it's better to leave foxes alone when they're angry, and their cunning, independent, witty creatures. I don't know, I just feel like I connect with foxes. Plus, I just think they're so damn cute!!
Thanks for checking out my newest addition to my ever-growing tattoo collection!! TTYL :)
