Way back in May 'Auntie' Angela and I promised Spinal Lou we'd get her a new tattoo for her birthday treat. But how could we make it that wee bit extra special?? Join in of course!
So, all three of us packed a picnic and hopped on the train. Iced buns and two bags of Percy Pigs - essential for keeping our sugar levels up - wouldn't want anyone fainting, now would we?
We'd already settled on the idea of getting daft 'matching' tats - the singing pansies from Alice in Wonderland. I've been obsessed with these pansies for years so getting them as a tattoo was inevitable.
All the pretty colours!
Getting set up
Lou going for the more traditional Wonderland pansies to tie in with her amazing Alice tat
That's Auntie Ang on the left, Lou in the middle and me, with the orange hair, on the right!
I'm up next. Took me months to decide where to put them. I opted for my ankle so that they tied in with my swallows that Kaye did a few years ago
That's Angela on the left in a glorious shade of her favourite colour and Lou sporting her trademark pout
Auntie Ang waited patiently all day and plumped for her right ankle - mirroring my left ;-)
That's me on the left flashing my trademark eyeliner and mascara and Lou on the right, mwah!
Auntie Ang and me (we're birthday twins too!)
