Yesterday was the moment I got my second tattoo.
In fact the decision was taken back in November.
Wait NO! It was taken the day I got my very first Ink, two and a half years back.
In France. This summer was my own « Hangover movie »
I’m connected to Kathalyne on Facebook.
You might not know her, but she is a very talented artist. She’s the lead singer of Louiz, a hugely talented photographer and a gorgeous woman.
One year ago I just started to notice some tattoos done by her boyfriend Bob on her profile and I instantly fell in love with his drawings.
He opened a salon called « L’atelier clandestin » that was first only for him and his work, but after Kate decided to add some womanly vibe to it and added a collection of retro/pin ups clothes collection.
So, in November, I contacted the salon, just out of the blue with no particular idea of what I wanted exactly.
I gave blurry indications and let the master do his magic.
I wanted something unique. The main theme had to be green.
And he draw that :
Hell yes ! I can see you face : It is gorgeous !
Magic happened !
So yesterday, was the D-Day.
I woke up at 7, drank at least four coffees, chose an outfit that could allow mister Bob to work, got my waterproof make-up on.
Yes, you never know.
Even though I didn’t feel pain the first time, I wasn’t sure I wouldn’t this time.
Why ? I don’t know… I always have to prepare for the worst.
I arrive at Jambes (you can literally translate that by legs, and yes people in Belgium are quite funny with their town names, we have another one called « Bouge » which means : MOVE)
First problems : Parkings.
You have to pay for 2hours, and then move.
So, I tricked the city and went on the movie theatre parking.
Not good, but hey… didn’t feel like ditching Bob in the middle of a tattoo to change parking place…
They are really nice people and put you directly at ease.
We joke, listen to music, talked a lot.
If you want a tattoo, and you’re in Belgium ?
Just go there !
Here is the facebook page link and some pictures.
