Phoenix Part 1

Technically I’m a day behind, but as you can see I have a good reason. Sal and I made the trek down to Fullerton today to get tattooed. This isn’t a tattoo that we got on a whim, this is something that we’ve been contemplating for a long time. My tattoo is a Phoenix; Gigi’s middle name is Phoenix. The legend of the Phoenix goes something like this…The Phoenix has a 500 to 1000 year life cycle. At the end it builds a nest out of twigs that catch on fire. The Phoenix burns with the fire down to ashes, and from the ashes a young Phoenix rises again to live out another life, making her immortal. The cry of the Phoenix is said to be as beautiful as a song.

This is the first round for both Sal and I, and when were done I’ll post again. I’m getting color added. Sal got Giovanna tattooed on the top of his shoulder and his whole left arm is going to be a battle scene between angels and demons. It looks amazing too. We researched and researched because we wanted to go to the same shop, but we have drastically different styles when it comes to tattoo’s. A big shot out to Kirk and Edo at Sleepy Lagoon Tattoo in Fullerton. Amazing!

New Life

I am posting early for a very good reason today. My best friend Amanda is getting induced tomorrow, but because she is on east coast time I will still be asleep when she goes into labor. Cadena, I am soo freaking excited for you and I cant wait to meet Rilynn. I know she will have the laughter from both of you and her good looks from her auntie. I love all 3 of you!

The poster was specially created today by Roman and I. I’ll give him the credit for the good part…whatever that is 😉
