Inked

So after ten years of thinking on it, and two years after finding what I wanted I finally took the plunge and got inked. Arrived about ten minutes early for my appointment at the Spirit Gallery, filled out the paperwork while my artist got everything set up, and then went in to contort myself for the process that ended up taking about 30 minutes. May I say that it hurt? Goodness the outlining bit seemed to take ages, and felt like someone digging into the skin. Oh, wait they were! The shading part was a lot less painful. Would I do it again? You betcha, but not anytime soon.

Now for your viewing pleasure, some photos of the momentous event.

  5. Too Cool! Love the tatoo and that it's "color." I've always known I couldn't handle the pain. Glad you were able to finally get yours.
