So, tonight I did something for myself at the tattoo studio. I spent two hours doing this to myself:
Say hello to my little ducky… (click to see it on flickr)
Yes. I said to myself. I’m only a little crazy.
I still have to do the color work on myself as a duck, but I’ll have to wait until the kink in my back and my knee straitens out. I’m just not as bendy as I used to be.
I’ve not always had a thing for rubber duckys, but for the last few years I’ve started to collect them for some odd reason, and clients have brought them to me thinking I collect them. So the ducky seemed appropriate. He’s on the same leg as my DNA helix, so I’m sure eventually I’ll have a sock incorporating the two and other “relics” of my childhood that I will feel the need to tattoo upon myself.
Until next time...

I am impressed. I would think it would be very hard to work on yourself.
Thank you. I won’t say it’s easy, but getting a tattoo was never “difficult” for me either. For me, the pain is more in trying to reach the location rather than the actual pain associated with the tattoo itself.
If your husbear doesn’t help you become more bendy… I will! 😉
I like the tat!
I’m fairly certain my knee was never meant to bend that way. I felt like Cirque du Soleil gone horribly wrong.
I like that it has your glasses!
Now I’ll always have to buy glasses that look like this….
Beautiful! You are definitely doing my next one, even if it means driving to Arkansas!
Thank you, and I’m holding you to that! 😉
Excellent. I wish I had you around Toronto so I could do stuff like this to my body.
I’m sure there’s some great tattooists up there in Toronto, but I greatly appreciate it!
I like the duck! An ex from my college days used to call me Elizabeth McDuck. My name is not Elizabeth, either.
Was that one of Scrooge McDuck’s relatives? 😉
Did you have to do it upside down? Amazing.
Upside down, and sideways. When I tattoo, I really don’t look at the orientation of the piece I’m working on as a whole, just the piece overall, if that makes sense?
Reminds me of the time I gave myself an appendectomy. 😉
I don’t think falling on a butt plug counts as an appendectomy. 😉
That is just way too cool! Love it!
