Aby-a-Day – 15 January: Tattoo foxers (Cartoon Tuesday)

This is only tangentially related to Abys, or even cats, but I thought you might find it interesting.

I had this snake tattoo…and I really didn’t like it. I got it for the wrong reasons, it hasn’t aged as well as most of the other ones I have, and it really doesn’t go with the other tattoos I have.

So I finally decided to do something about it. I decided to get the snake covered up with a traditional Japanese fox design.

Today was the first session. We got the outlines done, and then we coloured in the fox. I am not going to lie…this was the most painful tattoo I have ever gotten.

Instead of a red fox, though, I wanted a North American grey fox. I have always loved the grey and orange colouration of these foxes.

Also, the colouration of the grey fox is quite similar to Alfred’s…I call him my grey fox.

When I got home, I was drained and exhausted. I was lying on the sofa and Jacoby instantly came and lay on top of me…and on top of the tattoo. But it was nice, actually. Soothing. We’ll finish this tattoo up next month.
