I love my new tattoo!!!
Thursday, December 15, 2011
Well, it's official! I have a purple flower tattoo on my right arm under my sleeve. I love it. It's about the size of my thumbprint and very pretty. I have all of the stuff I need to keep it clean and healing properly. I promise not to peel, pick, rub, or soak it so the color stays. I also promise not to swim for 2 weeks.
I am so happy the tattoo artist was willing to do a toy drive for a charity for the tattoo. I may not have ever gotten my tattoo if she hadn't. I am so grateful! Her minimum charge is $75, so my $8 toy donation went a long way!!!
For those of you who are afraid of the pain, I was too. But here's the scoop. It is more painful to get my eyebrows waxed (which I did for $5 on sale upstairs after my tattoo). It is also more painful to hear my kids whine at me than it was to get the tattoo. It vibrated more than it hurt. I personally felt less pain than when I poke myself with a sewing needle while sewing something thick. If you can sew something thick by hand and keep poking yourself periodically, then this is a breeze!
Thanks for all the well wishes everyone who left me a post on my before the tattoo blog! Appreciate it!
