Well, I did it. :D I went and I got my ‘Night Fury’ tattoo and you’ll have to pardon me for saying so, but it’s fucking badass. Much thanks and love to Jibo at Diamond Tattoo in Renton, WA.
As I said back in [this post], the movie ‘How To Train Your Dragon’ has a lot of sentimental value for me. My nephew, Jack, and I watched it a lot while I was recovering from various cancer surgeries and also during chemo & radiation.
When I found out that I had to have all my teeth taken out as a result of said treatments, well… this tattoo seemed like the perfect way to commemorate that kind of occasion.
Why commemorate it? Because I’m not going to be toothless forever. Just like Toothless wasn’t actually toothless. He was a badass dragon, feared, and he never gave up relearning how to fly with a little help from his friends.
I have awesometastic friends and I’m not giving up on teeth or anything else. So, yes. Commemorate. Remember. Grow. Love. Learn.
