|Magpie, bee and dog-tag|
On Friday my partner (Geoff / tattdragon) and i had our long awaited day-long visit with our tattooist and good friend, Jo Harrison - finally back from her latest world trip (6 months in India, Australia and New Zealand).
It was fantastic to see her after so long: she is one of the brightest and most inspiring people i know, and her natural sparkle has only been brightened further by the amazing experiences she has had over the last 2 years of travel and inspiration. She did some truly beautiful work on us both - and managed to complete both of our magpies: Geoff's on his back, mine on my chest ('one for sorrow' when apart, 'two for joy' when we're together) :

We're due back to see her once more before she heads off for another few months (Thailand and Singapore) - when she hopes to complete colouring these two sections, and then start outlining the next sections on us both: further down onto Geoff's chest, and down onto my own ribs (ouch!).
Neither of us can wait! :)
