William, it was really nothing.
Sometime last week, I ventured deep into the bowels of a very clean, very respectable and very heavy-metal tattoo parlour and emerged a changed woman. The ink (if it wasn't obvious already) was inspired by Man Ray's famous photograph of Kiki de Montparnasse.
I'm incredibly happy with the way it turned out. I've wanted a tattoo of f-holes for about three years now, and I figured actually going through with it would be a neat way to commemorate my 20th birthday. It actually means a lot to me, since I've played the violin since I was 6 years old! Plus, I simply think that it is a beautiful motif.
