I remain amazed that that artwork was featured on an air freshener, but I DO think your tattooist improved it. I actually think the totally blue and black representation is much more elegant and tasteful and ultimately iconographic that that which you shared as the original.
I don't know what you mean by "my rainbow scented leigh." ?? I like the images you shared for your intended future tattoo, and yeah, you should DEFINITELY check it out first. I've often wondered if those kanji peeps might be having a good laugh on everyone else. "Szechuan Beef" or "Twice-Fried Shrimp" might be other possibilities you should investigate. Heh.
But whatever you do, if you find out your faerie scented cardboard previously whiffed off some Pine or Pina Colada, please do NOT let me know. (Well, this is Robin (one of the Lesbotronic women), but I'd say we all need to maintain at least a FEW illusions.) If you said it was one of those scents . . . it might hurt us. Maybe even mortally. Don't do that.
