Well it's done! My tattoo has been altered and re-finished... and it is so exciting :) For those of you just joining, you'd benefit from reading this first.

The clear change is in the face. My favorite part? I totally didn't expect the new face to be so sexy! I think I'd been thinking innocent, young fairy. What is amazing about it, is that it so representative of my own personal journey and goals in life. My whole life I've felt cute or pretty, but never a grown version of that - never sexy or womanly. It sounds silly, but I've spend the last couple years working on that, on my self-image. How amazing that the face lift for my fairy ended up being a step farther in that direction! It's kind of like she's grown up with me - and also like she's guiding me.
Something else that's been on my mind is how long I really thought nothing could be done to fix my tattoo... and I was wrong! Tattoos are generally one of those things that you feel like, if messed up, are an unfixable mistake. Seems to me that it's a life lesson for me that you can get past any mistake in life - that ANY mistake is one that you can make something beautiful out of. What an amazing feeling. And how EXCITING to essentially have a whole new tattoo! Polly recolored the whole thing, in addition to the face altering - and I am SO. pleased.
