I’d been craving another tattoo ever since my knee surgery. After dealing with my injury, getting sliced open, and the long recovery process, I felt like I didn’t have any control over what was going on to one of my largest limbs. Getting tattooed was a way to own my body once again.
I crutched my way through the door of Deluxe Tattoo last Monday after work, and had Zach Stuka ink a caribou antler onto the inside of my right arm.
Did you know that female caribou grow antlers, unlike the females of other deer species? I love animal facts. Now I’m in the mood to be home, curled up on the couch watching Planet Earth with a cat purring in my lap.
