There's been a dearth of posts this weekend because the lady and I were celebrating a birthday and six months of marriage back-to-back. In honor of this modest achievement (but hey, you've gotta get to six months before you get to sixty years, right?), ILFA wants to extend long-overdue gratitude to the fine folks at the Brooklyn Ink Spot Tattoo Parlor on Franklin at St. Johns for helping us tie the knot with some Franklin Avenue flavor (Lily & Fig also provided our wedding favors).
Having plotted complimentary tattoos for us for quite some time, the lady drew the original designs, and Kevin at the Ink Spot made them permanent with ease (ten nerd points for those who caught the obscure Ovid reference in the leaf designs). The experience was quick, fun, and professional, and we left satisfied (based on the high marks Ink Spot receives from the Brooklynians and the recommendations we got from the guys at Breukelen Coffee House, that seems to be the norm there). All of which is to say that if you're thinking of getting creative with your skin, there's a great place to do it locally (plus, the owners just opened Bella Greens in their former spot down by Park Place).
