I promised I would go in chronological order for as long as possible – and I did. I think I’m going in about the right order now, but I’m not sure. I’m pretty sure that Bunnicula came next, because I’m wearing American Eagle jeans in the photo of me getting him, and that was AGESSSSS ago. Actually, now that I’ve said that, I’m pretty sure my crane came next but we’re saving that one for next week.
I got Bunnicula because Bunnicula is awesome and was one of my favorite books as a child. The basic story of the first book is that a family finds a rabbit in a movie theater (while watching Dracula), and after they bring it home, the family’s dog and cat notice strange things happening, which lead them to conclude that Bunnicula is, in fact, a vampire hell-bent on draining the juice out of vegetables.
Bunnicula was done by the lovely Danielle Distefano at Only You Tattoo in Atlanta. I asked for a more literal interpretation of vampire, which is how I got a cute lil bunny in a cape. Danielle also did some “drained” veggies in white ink with a spooky green outline which I think is a nice touch. It’s hard to see in person, but the white ink used in the veggies looks really awesome. As a reference, there’s no white ink in Bunnicula – I’M JUST THAT PALE.
If you ever need a tattoo, go to Only You. I still go to Only You, and I live clear on the other side of the country now.
