I am not a good girl any more. I am officially a badass. Kidding :) but I did finally go and get my tattoo. You may recall my last experience, which you can also read about here. Yesterday, I put on my brave face and my big girl panties and just went and did it. Kurt took some photos to document the experience.
Here I am filling out the paperwork. There is still time to back out. (Spoiler: I don't.)
That's Clark Snyder back there from Ironclad and he did an awesome job. He didn't even laugh at me when I cried a little. Don't look too close or you can totally tell. (Sorry about the boobage. There isn't much I can do about it at this point in my life.)
Here it is finished and bleeding. Gruesome, I know.
Here is a picture from a couple hours later. It's still red and swollen, but it's looking better already.
Here I am today, looking fly. It's healing nicely so far.
In conclusion, yes, it hurt. Much less than I was anticipating though. Most of it wasn't bad, but they stem was a little hard to handle. Overall, it was a great first experience and I'll probably end up getting another at some point in my life. Currently, I'm lotioning it up a lot and looking forward to summer where I can show it off a little more.
