7. Get another tattoo

I figured out the design for my next tattoo. Haven’t gotten it yet, because I still can’t decide on placement. But I’m very happy with what it’s going to look like. It will be some subset of this painting of lupines.

Lupines by Barbara Cooney

The image itself is from the book Miss Rumphius by Barbara Cooney. I can’t wait to find an artist in the Boston area to work with on this! But first, I’ll carry the design around for another year to be sure it’s what I want. Having identified the design – that counts as “getting another tattoo” for the purposes of this list! I won’t be rushing into actually getting it though. My first tattoo was of a design I carried around for 8 years, so sitting on this design for a while feels like a good idea.
