Mine hehe! Should be getting some more next year. Don't have a lot of money yet, getting a geisha. I love yours Jenny and I love the one for Mizu! What was Mizu (species I mean)? - if you don't mind me asking
Mizu was a turquoise female linnie - the first bird that was really, truly, MINE. We had birds growing up as kids, and some were 'mine' but they were my mom's birds I played with, really. I moved out for college, got a place, and bought Mizu myself, for myself. She was a shy bird, never liked hands, but we were very closely bonded. If I was laughing, she'd do a linnie giggle. If I was mad or yelling, she'd make angry noises. If I was crying, she blew me kisses. Every night I came home from work (we're talking 11pm-12am) she'd make quiet kissy noises from under the covers to me to welcome me home. I miss her dearly, though it's been a year and a half since she passed
About how much are tattoos?
They vary in price - I have an artist who comes down from NC a few times a year and charges the cost of ink and a little extra. He did my back piece with cherry blossoms and the sparrow for $140 and he did my ankh (just got that a few weeks ago) for $120. The more detail to a tattoo, the colors, the shading, etc all impact the price. Unless you really know and trust an artist, don't go somewhere for price. When I get my back piece done, I know it's gonna cost me a good $1,000+ to get it done EXACTLY how I want it. It's totally worth it tho since it's something you have to live with. I have a good... $800 in tattoos on me right now? and I'm not done!
