Whilst Bee obviously isn’t my real name, it is a huge part of who I am. In fact my motto is ‘When I’m Bee, I’m free to be me’.
I’d been wanting a bee tattoo for a long time but I wasn’t going to rush into anything. It had to be right so I waited until the right inspiration came along. I spent a lot of time pondering whether to go for something realistic, or to go with something more fun and cartoon like.
Then my dear friend Molly posted this image on her 365 project. This was the inspiration I had been waiting for, as soon as I’d run the idea past my partner I asked Molly if she would be happy for me to use her image for my tattoo. Thankfully her answer was a resounding YES!
On finding the right artist for the job, we discussed sizes, she sketched out a few ideas and then I booked myself in and became the proud owner of the most beautiful tattoo I had ever seen.
Obviously whilst I was there I couldn’t help myself and give a cheeky flash too.
