Nancy Nelson, Ames, IA Tattoo studio: The Asylum, Ames, IA
“I have a “cattoo” that I got last summer. It is of Baker, my soul mate, travel companion, lover of everyone (2- and 4-legged). I lost him 5-6-08 and I still miss him every day.
The tattoo was done at The Asylum in Ames, IA. I can’t remember the artist’s name. I just remember he loved his car and he was a cat lover, who was looking to get a Bengal (amazing the things you remember).
The tattoo is even more “special” as less than a week after getting it, it sent me to the hospital for 3 days and then another week off work. Don’t think I’ll ever know whether it was an infection or some sort of allergic reaction. I hold no ill will to the tattoo shop, in fact – after I talk to my doctor – I need to get a little bit of the tattoo touched up.”
