Two Chickens for Tattoosday

I met Amy back in June while walking in Penn Station. She has a lot of tattoos, and offered up these chickens:

Amy told me that she got these from Joanne Martin at the Jade Mermaid Tattoo Parlor in Portland, Oregon. She and a friend were supposed to get the same tattoo. Amy elaborated:
"She [Joanne Martin] was offering the deal that, if [two people] got the same tattoo, it'd be one price for both of them and we [Amy and her friend] decided to get the chickens because we had both sort of raised them. But he 'chickened' out at the last minute ... and I got it anyway. A lot of people seem to like it, especially in Costa Rica. They dug it there."
When I asked if the chickens had names, she confirmed that "one's Esther and one is Henrietta. Pun intended." She concluded, "Everyone has to have one hen named Henrietta."

Thanks to Amy for sharing her chickens with us on Tattoosday!
