I am fortunate to have a delightful family and they all have wonderful stories to tell. This is just one of many, and I thought I would share it with you.... my virtual family members!!
We have three children. Two girls and one boy. This is a story pertaining to our youngest.
Chris and his wife Natasha, had three children, a girl and two boys. Tasha recently decided to get a tattoo and I asked if I could tag along and document the process.
An appointment was made at Spencer's Electric Crayon,and we arrived at the appointed time. I found this to be a bright airy spot where we were warmly greeted by non other than.... yes, you guessed it... Spencer! This gentleman has been a tattoo artist for 15 years and prior to that was a chef at our local University and at a prestigious private school in our area. ( A man of many talents!)
After signing a waiver form, the area to be tattooed was cleansed with an antiseptic and a previously approved stencil was applied. "Yup, that's where I want it" she said. Nervousness was being replaced with a "let's do it" attitude!
Spence stated that he was the only tattoo artist in Atlantic Canada with 100% single use, disposable instruments. The lot numbers from each of these instruments are then carefully stapled to the waiver form and filed away. The "nurse" in me found these statements to be reassuring.
The outline of the design is done first with one type of needle while the color is applied with another type.
Check out these pics of the whole procedure...
In the end, Tasha was delighted with the result.( I was too....just in case you were wondering!)
I I know you want to see the finished product , don't you?? OK...here goes...
That is a story pertaining to their youngest.
Note of interest : Spencer's Electric Crayon made a generous donation to the IWK Health Center fund raising event that Tasha was involved with this past week-end,
