HMMMM THIS CALLS FOR A MINI TB MEET UP AT A TATTOO SHOP....
OMG this is was the most anticipated event of the â€śmeet upâ€ť week. Erin announced to the whole world that we were going to get tats. *sign* I wanted to keep it on the DL, but nooooooooooo she adds the info on her TB destination list summary. Afterwards, I got bombarded with PM and comments on what I was going to get and why. I had 2 months to figure what I really wanted. I had many choices in mind but, I wanted my first one to be â€śMEâ€ť.
Erin was in vegas in july. She has always wanted to cover up her parrot tat on her ankle. I went along for the ride. I told Erin about Salâ€™s friend, Alex, I met Alex at Salâ€™s BBQ in the summer. Alex had awesome tats on her arms of dead dolls and Japanese geisha. Since Erin loves the whole nightmare before xmas and Disneyâ€™s haunted mansion ride, the style is very fitting.
We went to the tattoo shop. We met Nickhole. She was booked up until September anyway which is perfect. Erin has a â€śpoohbearâ€ť on right foot. She has always wanted color of it. Check out the session HERE. Anyway, that is the summary.
Here is my tattoo story; I have wanted a â€śtram stampâ€ť of flames of my Libra sign or infinity symbol or 8 little stars of davids on my back. I ended up not feeling it with any of them and Nickhole can tell. I was supposed to be first. Erin ended up going first. Nickhole wanted to do the 3 HITCH HIKERS from the Disney ride, haunted mansion.
While Nickhole worked on Erin, I was searching at one of my favorites unrated comic characters, PON AND ZI by Jeff Thomas. Then I saw the perfect tat that is â€śMEâ€ť. it was a photo of Pon eating a cookie in the corner. I asked Nickhole to remove the cookie and added a cupcake instead HAHAHAHA THAT IS SOOOOOO ME. I had it done on my right ankle and it is 4in tall.
Nickhole is so funny. She was threatening Erin not to take photos of her that she will â€śkill her faceâ€ť HAHAHA. Nickhole was not happy Erin walked in the shop with strep throat and she was going to tattoo erinâ€™s leg 3 hitch hiking porn stars instead HAHAHAHA.
ALL OF US: HI
BRITTNEY: ARE YOU MARRIED?
ALL OF US: NO
BRITTNEY: WHY NOT?!?! ITâ€™S THE LAW
ALL OF US: HAHAHAHAHA OMG!!!!
OMG Erinâ€™s tat was effffing awesome. Joe (vimessir) even came to the tat shop to watch us get our tats. 3 hours of work and only one fifteen minute break, the line work and shading is finished. Mine was an hour of line work, shading, and a little color is finished.
OMG it was ok at first, but when Nickhole went around the back of my ankle. OMG GEEEEZ the pain. Erin has my agony photos. I was breathing like I was in a lamas class HAAHAHAHA. I could not move. Every time Nickhole would add more color, my leg would twitch. I was grabbing on the chair with claws.
The aftermath of the tat, erin and I limped to her car. Poor Joe has to put up with us the rest of the evening. The txted the VEGAS CORE CREW, to have dinner tonight for Louise (1morespicy) and Erinâ€™s last night in VEGAS.
One the way back to my house, it would be fitting if i got a cupcake after my tat. We were all hungry too. We took Joe's to my favorite mexican food spot. Then we went to cupcake line bakery to have cupcakes. I was a HAPPY MELLE. i am such the cupcake monster HAHAHAHA. Also i helped Erin remove her saran wrapped tat before picking up Louise. EEEEEEEEEEEEEEK i felt bad, we were a half and hour late.
We parked at new York new York to walk across the Excalibur where Dickâ€™s is. Erin wanted to stop by at the piano bar where AL was working from the Sundayâ€™s event. We got our hand stamped to get in free later. Then walk to Dickâ€™s.
It was a tame night, we arrived at 9pm. Taco was on the tail in of his show.
We all got our hats, I had: â€śIâ€™VE BEEN TEA BAGGED SO MUCH, MY NICKNAME IS LIPTONâ€ť erin had, â€śI USE THESE AS FLOATION DEVICEâ€ť. Louise had â€śI SLID DOWN MORE POLES THAN A VEGAS STRIPPERâ€ť and Joe had a check mark list of things to do in vegas, one of not check BUY A WIG FROM A HOOKER STORE. hahahaha. OMG TO FUNNY!!!! Erinâ€™s friend, Quiana, had â€śIâ€™VE SWALLOWED MORE SEAMAN THAN THE TITANICâ€ť this is a great place to embarrass quiet people. I LOVE IT!!!!!
Afterwards, we walked Louise back to the New York New York to grab a taxi back to her hotel. she has a loooong flight ahead of her. the rest of us walked back to the piano bar.
