That's funny because I have a tatoo of the symbol for wild on my chest... My husband and I went to baltimore got stinky drunk at the hard rock cafe and asked the waitress who had some awesome tatoos if she new a good place... She directed us to the Baltimore Tatoo Museum and the place was awesome... They had a whole wall of them...I tell everyone it means free spirit...lol... So in honor of drunken tatoos I must join...

Finshed mine up today..just need to fill out the backs and embellishing the envelope(yes I'm feeling that ambitious).
The first one transletes to "delicious fish" or "sushi" and the third one is "rooster"-I used handcarved and commercial stamps, gel pens and sumi ink on these. The middle one is "wealth" and I used layered japanese papers, rubberstamp and sumi ink on it.
