Happy 1st Inkday, Wraith!

Wraith officially turned 1 year old at 12:40 PM. I had cake this morning (6:46 am) and sang too!

I’m going to include some photos of the Happiness Box 2019 pages from the day. I made the first page last July, wrapped it up, then made the back page when I did May 2019 in April 2020.

Mom and dad dropped me off at Christina’s in West Chester at 10:30 am on Sunday, 26 May 2019. At 11 we walked to Roots Cafe for breakfast, where we had a vegan and gluten-free French toast. I drank plenty of apple juice since that helps the skin. Christina treated me to my pre-tattoo breakfast.

My appointment was for noon, so we walked the five minutes from Roots to X-Treme Ink, Antman was just opening and he took me right back. He placed the outline of Wraith on my skin, asked if that is where I wanted it, I shook my head, and he began. I loved watching the squirrels out the window, my first tattoo on my ribcage didn’t hurt at all. The process was actually relaxing. 40 minutes later, Wraith became my forever friend, my ride or die, who will accompany me throughout all stages of my life. I’m still giddy about my ink.

Happy Inkday, Wraith!

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    I’m all verklempt, dear friend! Happy 1st Inkday to your Wraith! I enjoyed hearing you sing the birthday song to him. It was fun flashing back to that day a year ago when you met up with Christina, had breakfast, mentally prepped for your tattoo appointment and then underwent the 40 minute procedure. It is touching to know that you gained a friend and companion for life that day. More power to you! I enjoyed the Juggalo style birthday rap song by ICP. I hope you enjoyed your cake. It looks yummy.

    Thank you for sharing your feelings upon reaching this milestone, the first anniversary of making the Wraith a permanent part of your life. Enjoy the rest of your week, dear friend JM!
