Tattoo Fest

We have been waiting for this day for at least the last 5 years. Ever since I met Tommie Briggs, he has been talking about getting a tattoo. The image has changed a lot over time, but he still was sure he wanted one. Finally, after a few foiled attempts to get one, Tommie wen to Ink Inc. in McKinney to get it done. Dorian decided that he would get one too. Trey, Coffy, and I came along for entertainment value. The tattoo artist, Rob, was really good. He was a nice guy and had good ideas for both of their tattoos. There was a little girl named, Lucy, running around the shop. She was so cute stealing Rob's tips and giving them to Tommie. They both said that it didn't hurt. But I did see some blood on Dorian's. Who knows, maybe this will be their new thing and they will get a dozen more!

Dorian is all smiles before he goes under the needle.

No tears. No fear.
