Shock Treatment.

Those that know me IRL know that I'm completely obsessed, and have been forever, with Charles Baudelaire. Those who don't, CB was a French poet/opium addict/red wine consuming weirdo who had strange mistresses and one of the most subversive and daring written voices of his time. I finally got his poem L'Ennemi tattooed from my underarm to my hipbone, about 4 and a 1/2 inches in width. Can I tell you that it took 6 hours and I went into shock? Well worth it. Plus, Paulie at Glen's Tattoo Shop in Chapel Hill is my new favorite. Love him. So nice through the whole thing, attention to detail, courteous, and never once was a prick about the whole no shirt thing. I'll post some pics of the final product later today.
