Two Tattoos


For several years I've been talking about getting a tattoo of the multicolored sheep that we use as our logo. Three years ago my mother in law drew the line drawing of the sheep and I colored it in with watercolor colored pencils and since then its come to represent the company which means so much to me and seems to consume every waking (and more than a few sleeping) moments of my life now a days. So it felt right that my first tattoo should recognize something so important to my life and who I am as a person.

Finally, about a week ago, my husband and I took a trip to a tattoo shop, Blue Flame, that came highly recommended. We thought we would have to schedule an appointment for later in the week, but they said that for such a small tattoo we could come back in an hour. And before I knew it, I had a tattoo! You can see a few photos of my tattoo experience here.

To celebrate my new tattoo, I'm getting one for you too! Only, yours won't hurt as much and will come off with a bit of scrubbing in the shower. I had temporary tattoos made using our logo Sheep. We will have them with us at festivals (like the one coming up on October 4th!) and you can also snag one with your next order. Just tell us that you'd like one in the comments section when you check out!

ETA: the tattoo is on my thigh, for those wondering!

Awesome! I really want a knitting themed tattoo.

I will snag one of your temporary tattoos at Farm Fest! My friends and I will have a booth selling knitting patterns and small knitting bags.

Looks awesome!

So where is it? Arm, back, leg... it's gotta be somewhere you can show off in public, right? ;)

Oooh, I love them both!

Is it too late to ask you to toss one into my Brew Pub order?

I love it!

I think i am getting a new tat for our anniversary next month. Been wanting a new one for a few years now... going for the painful top of the foot tat! Watch out , they are very addictive! Would love one of your temp tats for fun! (if we can get them in the enchanted orders!)

Congrats on your tattoo! He did a beautiful job. The procedure looks painful--you are brave.
If you can, please send a temporary tattoo with the next installment of my sample order--thanks :)

The tattoo is awesome!! I snagged a temp one at the show! :) If it's nice this weekend...I'll take the tattoo to the beach so the sheep can travel.

Your tattoo is absolutely great!! I am a devoted sheep collector and story writer and I am thinking of getting a sheep tattoo too. The colors you chose definitely are unique, as is the lining of the legs. I hope you are still happy with it :)
