**WARNING GRAPHIC INJURY PICTURES**
Last weekend I had a small incident with a hatchet. Maybe not that small. Barely missed the bone, and it's going to be months of healing.
I was splitting wood to start a fire for an alleycat race last week, my house was a stop. Was going to have chai and a fire since it was chilly. Then I missed with the hatchet. I now know that I should have been using a second log to stabilize the log I was cutting. But it's a little late for that...
Keep reading to see what happened and how the healing is progressing. But be warned, there is some really gross stuff, it's not for the squeamish. I have trouble even looking at some of these photos, and it's my finger!
The day before, I got some tattoo work done, too, I was really amazed at how nice June's line work looked after our mutual friends started posting pics of her work. Finally, I found someone that could do the chainring from the bikelove logo.
I've wanted this on my body for a long, long time, but didn't know anyone that I trusted enough to do it. And I thought it would be hundreds of dollars.
She actually said that the logo would be too quick, and asked me to think of something else to do to meet her minimum. So I decided to write something in Gallifreyan that means a lot to me. June's stuff is great for circles and straight lines, which are some of the hardest things for people to do.
It looks really great. She didn't take long with it, just zip-zip-zip and then it was done. Many artists wouldn't even take a design like this, and she looked at it like it was nothing.
I'm so happy with both pieces, my first new ink in probably 7 or 8 years. I can't recommend her work enough.
Keep reading if you want to hear about the injuries from the hatchet.
