Booked my new tattoo today....roll on May 13th!

Really excited about this....

I promised myself a backpiece for my 40th, but plenty of things got in the way last year, and so it's going to be a 41st thing instead.

I have chosen a beautiful Haida painting of two orcas - mother and baby. I love this image, the mother looks so protective towards her young, and they both look free and proud. And of course there is a little nod to the Canucks in there, but not to such an extent that it's about them, just an added bonus really.

The artist who will be doing the work is the best in the area, and he has a pretty long waiting list - but by taking a day off work I can get in in just over 5 weeks.

It will take a couple of sittings, but when it is all done it will look a little bit like this:

(isn't Photoshop clever)

(and don't worry Dad, it won't be visible under normal clothes so this won't get me the sack! :))
