Yesterday I posted my Illustration Friday response to this week's theme "Tattoo" and stated that if I ever were to get a tattoo it would be paisley. It was frivolous—I don't want any kind of tattoo really.
Today I went over to Columbia Art Supply to pick up some stretcher bars and other things and as I was paying, on the counter I spotted a display of little Dover books, including this one! Whaaaaaa—I thought I made that up, just yesterday. It was a whim and yet, here were actual paisley tattoos. Of course I had to buy it. And of course I had to come home and apply one of them to the very hand that was my model yesterday.
It's temporary, but I think I like it. Do the real ones hurt? A lot?
