A Tattoo for Rowan: Finished

My appt was yesterday so it's still fresh and swollen but it's finished! The color really pops on my extra white forearm and we tried to incorporate as many colors as possible. The only one I nixed was orange 'cause it stuck out in a bad way so he went over it in red. 
I love it, and I know Rowan will too.
Here's to the end of this journey. It was a long time coming. I'm talking over a year, so it's a little surreal to have it all over and done with. Until the next baby that is!

  3. Beautiful tattoo!
    That's good that you could get the orange you didn't like out and replace it with yellow. I didn't know you could do that with tattoos!
