Dan Gilsdorf from Atlas Tattoo in PDX is the fantastical artist who helped me realize my dream of having a hometown mash-up cityscape on my leg. I think I'll be covering/incorporating the cross into another building. I'm thinking barn-roof farmhouse in honor of my grandma's beloved barn and my mom's first house she could afford when we were kids. I'm so pleased with the work that I can feel an impending tattoo addiction. This is strange because typically, for me, a combination of expense and even the slightest discomfort is extremely prohibitive. (Hence- no more snowboarding or skiing.) I may also start wearing capris- shudder.
