Saturday was a rainy, rainy day. When we woke up that morning the mountains outside has disappeared in the thick clouds and the rains began early. Shannon, Jennifer and myself had tattoo appointments at 1 pm in Pigeon Forge. Shannon and I had come up with a design for our group and I had early on joked about us all getting a tattoo while we were together, and once we made a design up which we got on t-shirts and hoodies, a few of us decided that we really wanted to cement the deal and I began searching for a tattoo studio. We ended up at Southern Draw. I had spoken via email several times with Rhonda, who owns the studio, and she loved out design and it's meaning so she was super excited that we decided to share this day with them.
We arrived a little before our appointment time and did all the appropriate paperwork needed. I couldn't get over how beautiful and clean the studio was, so I was very glad we chose the place we did. Rhonda showed up not long after we got there. Her daughter was to do Jennifer's tattoo, an artist named Bush was to do Shannon's because she was adding some sunset colors behind hers, and Rhonda was doing mine.
