Fresh ink

23 Apr

Everyone loves getting new ink — and Addam and I are no exception.

This weekend we went down to Vince’s Nightmare Tattoo, where our good friend Adrian (Danae’s hubby) performed the perfect cover up.

Addam has had a tribal tattoo that he’s wanted to get rid of for awhile now, but he just recently figured out how he wanted to mask it. He finally decided on a tree and absolutely loves it! (Which is fortunate — considering he’d have to get half of his arm inked black if he didn’t.)

I’ve have a number of tattoos, but none are nearly as large as Addam’s. He said that it hurt quit a bit, especially toward his armpit. He was a trooper and finished up in about and hour and a half or two hours.

I think it looks great and can’t wait to head back for something of my own. Addam and I also want to get our wedding rings tattooed on before we head out of Miami, so it should be another exciting trip to the parlor!

It’s been a while since The Rum Diary hit audiences, but it should come as no surprise that Addam and I were at the theater on opening night. Unfortunately as excited, and as nervous, as I was to see Hunter S. Thompson’s first published work on film, I found the movie very disappointing.

After work I biked over to South Beach, where I met with Addam. We had about three hours to kill, so we had a couple of drinks by the beach and shared a meal at a nearby hookah bar before making our way to the theater.

The theater was HUGE, and so were the advertisements. The show was practically sold out, so Addam and I had to sit separately. As frustrating as it was to have to watch the movie alone, at that point nothing could get to me. I first read the book as a freshman in college and had been patiently waiting for the movie for about six years.
