The Finished Project-IXOYE

Awesome~! Just what he wanted. It is a fish symbol with the Greek letters IXOYE meaning Jesus Christ God's Son and Savior. He had to keep it out of the sun and water for two weeks and let the redness and swelling go down. We are well past that stage now and it looks really cool....just like my HOT hunky husband!!

The Preparation

He wanted something unique so he told the artist the things he wanted in his tattoo. He took the information - told us to go have lunch (we ate at the Trailer Park Cafe down the street which is awesome!!) and it took him about an hour to draw it out on paper for Gregg to approve. I think I was more excited than he was! It took about an hour and a half for him to "tattoo" it on...

Our "Nash-Vegas" Anniversary stay

Gregg bought us James Taylor tickets for our anniversary and we spent the night at a wonderful hotel. The next day was beautiful and was perfect weather for strolling the streets of downtown Nashville...we walked by one place that has been on his mind for years...Billy Joe's Tattoo and Piercing. He is a Christian tattoo artist as well as his employees. Gregg has wanted to get a tattoo for years and we decided that was the perfect day to get one!
