My new tattoo! I can’t believe it’s real. I keep looking at my right forearm thinking it might disappear. So happy!
Thank you @lapetiteyusun from @tattoopeopletoronto for your wonderful job! You consolidated all my jumbled ideas, put them together, and created something beautiful. You are wonderful!
I wanted tattoo for so long, and at the same time I was so scared to try it. But in the last 4-5 months I couldn’t think of anything else. I think I even saw it in my dreams. I actually wanted to do a full sleeve but my friend @kompashka convinced me to start with something smaller to see how I can handle pain. So in my mind I resigned and prepared for something similar to a very painful torture, and all I hoped was not to pass out from pain. Another thing I was scared of was having an allergic reaction, that my forearm will be super-swollen and hurt for days. Boy, was I wrong!
No swelling and no allergy (thank God)! As for the pain, I was prepared for anything from 8 to 10 out of 10. I read some reviews/blog posts online, and that’s what other women told to expect. And of course, I know it can hurt more in some places than the others, but... in reality, compared to some vicious migraines that I have it was nothing. Maybe 0.5 out of 10 for the most part and around 1 out of 10 in a little area very close to my wrist (those two little buds). It felt like something in between a mosquito bite and a little kitten scratching you. That’s it. I’m so proud of myself that I finally did it, and now I know that if I decide to go for a full sleeve like I originally wanted, I will definitely survive. 🌸🌸🌸😍👸🏼 #tattoo #tattooideas #ink #inked #cherryblossom #cherryblossomtattoo #colortattoo #fromtorontowithlove #dreamscometrue
