So here I am, I've been up since 4:00 a.m., and I'm waiting for [livejournal.com profile] mezzanotterose so that we can leave to drive to Knoxville. Today is the day I will be getting the Neptune part of my tattoo. I am somewhat nervous, and the three hours of sleep I've had have left me in a hazy, easygoing state, so I think I am less nervous than I would be normally. I know it is going to hurt quite a bit, but that bothers me less than I thought it would.

Here is the sketch I am going to bring. )

Sunday Rose and I are doing the Vestalia ritual, we moved it so that we could go right into the flamekeeping afterward without worrying about unattended flames. So for the next week we will be keeping a flame burning in honor of Vesta and her attendants. This is the third year we have done this, it just feels natural now. I baked a loaf of my honey bread to give as an offering yesterday.

Then it is getting the place ready for the Neptunalia. It has become a public ritual, which means more preparations, but on the other hand it means things have a solid goal. Corey and I hope to get the fenceline moved out this week, and I have to work on the area in the front of the door so that it looks presentable.

lots of work!

It's on crappy paper, and I need to redraw it a couple of times before I actually put it on my body, but you get the idea. I want her eyes to be like mirrors, I think. I tried cat eyes, snake eyes and human eyes, didn't like any of them.

It would be very cool to add a pegasus flying up behind her later on. Someday when I have more money I guess.
