It's a real appointment, with a date and time and money involved, not like the privileged slacker appointments i usually have.
And it's with an artist who usually has a waiting list as long as my husbands, and is very selective with his foreign clients, so i am pretty friggin lucky to have gotten an appointment at all.
Sometimes knowing the right people ain't so bad.
Anyway, i have a problem, and my problem is that i still haven't decided what to get.
Now this is definitely one of those luxury problems, but it's one that bugs me nonetheless.
All of a sudden the appointment is only a few weeks away (like i said earlier, Japan crept up on me this time) and i'm still juggling around three or four ideas, and any one of them could get replaced by a new idea at any moment.
The thing is, i'm probably only gonna get tattooed by Shige this one time, so i feel like it has to be the perfect idea.*
If i choose one idea it means rejecting a billion other ideas, and that worries me.
I usually just go with what feels right or fun, but that doesn't seem to be working for me this time.
Also, i have a feeling that i might be over thinking this one just a tad.
Anyway, i still have a few weeks to search my books, my brains and the internet for the perfect idea, but at least i can take comfort in the fact that everything Shige does is pretty much amazing, so there's no way i can lose.
See for yourself.

*No, i'm not getting my back done.
In that case i'd be scared shitless, not nervous and excited.
