My knitting tattoo, part 5.

Round three took nine hours.

Not only did it take nine hours (giving us a total of 19 hours), but it was also Jason’s day off AND his birthday.

That day, March 27, 2007, I drove home feeling quite satisfied.

Would you like to see a raw photo of Jason’s masterpiece (once healed, of course)?



There’s no doubt that my tattoo artist saw my vision.

The only thing left for me to do was to find a way to thank Jason for all of his hard work.

I’ll tell you how that plan unfolded when I post tomorrow.  In the meantime, to continue showing my thanks today, if you find this tattoo to be particularly unique or beautiful, would you mind “liking” it, “tweeting” it or “pinning” it?  I’d love for Jason to see worldwide recognition and appreciation for his patience and artistic ability.

To be continued…

    I’m doing research for my own knitting tattoo. Yours is very realistic and looks great. IT is a little weird how it gets cut off on either side. I’m hoping to get a complete piece.

    That is beautiful! Being a knitting nerd, I have to ask, was it intentional that the coral stitches are oriented the opposite direction on the needle? If the blue ones were that was too I would say its because we’re looking at it as if the work were in the knitters hands. But the blue ones have the correct orientation for if you were about to knit them, while the coral stitches look like they were just knit with the wraps going clockwise instead of counter clockwise. If you knit them in that orientation they’d be twisted. I never would have noticed that if I had seen your tattoo in person… I may have been studying it for a while 😉 and I may be on a similar level of crazy obsession as the sheep lady you fooled. But it really is fantastically amazing. Makes me want to visit the east coast just to use your tattoo artist!

    I give credit on tattoos only when it is due. And THIS is a beautiful piece of art! The attention to detail is amazing.
