Someone sent this picture to my husband via his cellphone, so sorry for the quality. And just to give you an idea of how weird this family is, we’re now heading to Ace Hardware to see if they actually have this stuff in stock.
Anybody want some? They could have a whole load of them there.
UPDATE: Went to the store but couldn’t find any. The look of the young cashier was priceless when my hubby asked for it by name. I wish I could have taken a picture of his expression.
I’m still way too new to do anything amazing, but I do like how my farm area came out. I thought I’d also show off my avatar, since I tried to make her look like me. I custom made one for John too. I even added a little bald spot at the back top of his head, which he seemed to get a kick out of.
That’s what’s in each of these delightful little shots. The recipe didn’t call for anything very elaborate, but I tried to add my own touch by making a thin layer of just pineapple juice, gelatin and vodka to make it look like a pineapple slice. The remaining shot was then made with the rest, including more vodka.
All in all I think they look very similar to tiny upside down pineapple cakes, but in Jello shot form. Unfortunately I had 7 of them tonight and didn’t really feel anything. I also think they could have been sweeter, so I may have to try these again. I hope that everyone likes them tomorrow at the Easter dinner we’ve been invited to. I know my friend loves UV Cake Vodka and Pineapple, which is why I thought I’d make these and hopefully surprise her.
I took pictures as I made it so I may do a photoset sometime too if people really like this.
So here’s the finished product. I hope that this will be a memory that my daughter will look back on fondly for many years to come. The tattoos took about 3 hours to do and that was with 2 artists working on us at the same time. My daughter chose a red heart, but since my husband and I are fond of purple, I opted for that color. The rest of it is very black, as you can see. I’m also noticing that I may need some touch-ups, since I don’t think my guy made everything as balanced as he could, so I’ll have to see what it looks like when it gets healed up.
I really was surprised at how little it hurt. There were a few moments, but all in all, it was surprisingly manageable. I was also very impressed with how well my daughter handled it. I don’t think she complained once, so I have a feeling this will be the first of many tattoos for her. As for me, well, I think I’m still in shock over it all. I love the way tattoos look on other people, but right now I think I’m feeling even more self-conscious about my weight because I don’t think it looks as well as how it looks on my daughter’s svelte body. I hope in time, however, I will come to love it. Maybe this will also help be in the incentive to get back on my in August.
