I showed you what I bought in Amsterdam and Scandinavia already, however, I got a souvenir that is a little more durable, I’d say. Some colour on my skin. I knew I wanted/considered a tattoo from my journey, but I wasn’t sure about it. even though I had found a great shop in Amsterdam. Eventually, however, I wrote the artists and we agreed on a loose date. The shop is Queen of Arts Tattooing in Amsterdam (a fantastic, clean shop) and the Artist Sera.
I wanted something to remember travelling alone by and I got a kitten and a tulip by the lovely @sera.hunt 🐱 it is inspired my my cat, but it also reminds me of one of the aristocats. 🌸 Now heading to Copenhagen, so any last minute tips are welcome. 💕 #ootdsocialclub #ootd #whatiwore #pinupgirl #50s #50sgirl #50sfashion #midcentury #60sgirl #60s #60sdress #60sfashion #girlswithtattoos #tattoo #kitten #tulip #tattooedgirls
The design was somewhat spontaneous. Sera posts flash designs on her Instagram and I liked quite a few of them. But, when I was there one the very day, she told me she could also design something there and then. So I told her I’d like a cat and a tulip (for the Netherlands, because I’m creative like that). The cat was inspired by my cat, but reminds me a lot of one of the Aristocats and Dinah (Alice’s cat) which is just perfect. I think it’s so adorable and will always remind me of the lovely time I had.
The pain was okay, certain parts were a bit uncomfortable and some times I felt as if I had got pins and needles in my hand (which is not unusal, but probably even more intense due to my low blood pressure). It healed very well, considering I was travelling during the process and I think it’s adorable how the cat peaks out of my shirts.
