Tattoos, Tequila, and Edel

JUNE 5, 2007
The flames were not my idea.
       I'm not known for creating likenesses, but I'm always up for a challenge. Months ago I posted an attempt using our Mr. Waxman as a model. After that I decided to take on a more difficult one... Edel Rodriguez. At first I tried Oils and it turned into a muddy mess. Then I tried pastels... I'm a lefty and smeared the whole thing all over my sleeve. I tried airbrush, sculpture, and even an interpretive dance. While they did represent Edel, non of them really captured the fire in his eyes and rage of passion in his soul. Then in a fit of inspiration I used my good old ink pen and voila!   I did it... or at least at the time I thought I did. I was so pleased I decided to get out a bottle of Dom Pérignon Champagne. That's when the trouble began... we were out of Champagne, the only thing I found was a bottle of Tequila.  Anyway... all I remember is... well nothing. But apparently I was so pleased with the likeness I went to Pat's Tats and had it tattooed on my arm. Now I love Edel but... not on my arm. Anyone know of a tattoo laser removal place they can recommend?
