Since transitioning to veganism, I’ve realized that a lot of what we use aren’t vegan friendly including tattoo ink and aftercare products. I began researching online for my fourth tattoo.
I opted to tattoo Ernest Hemingway’s autograph on my inner right wrist.
On the other hand, he had numerous 6 toed cats (a.k.a. Polydactyl cats) in his home in Key West. I have one named Santiago after the man in “The Old Man & the Sea”.
At the end of the day, I’ll always love Hemingway’s writing style and his stories (though the bullfighting descriptions will still make me wince slightly). I have loved his work for 18 years of my life and even wrote a 100 page paper on Hemingway for a high school English class.
My tattoo artist will be Brittany Bauza. I had sent them an email regarding my tattoo and within 30 minutes, they replied with availabilities and cost estimates. And within the next 15 minutes, I was set.
I’ll most likely Twitter (@ImJaniceLai) the whole experience and pictures will be available soon after! Keep your fingers crossed for me!
