Tat Will Do Nicely

It's official.
I've only gone and done it.
After years of indecision.
I finally took the plunge.
I made the appointment.
I endured the weird "ice-burn" type pain.
I've moisturised daily.
I've flashed it to anyone I meet, whether they're interested or not.
Except you dear Blog reader.
It's your turn to see it.
Are you ready?
Here it is ...
My tattoo !
Yes, it's a shabby-chic rose!
Can't think where I got my inspiration from!
And for those of you who haven't had one, and have been thinking about it but can't stand pain ... it's really not that bad.
Imagine how it feels when you hold some ice next to your skin - you can take it for so long and then it starts to hurt in a burning type of way. Well that's what it felt like, but just as I started to think I couldn't take it any more, she lifted the tattoo-gun and moved to a different bit of skin.
It took about 50 minutes and felt like sunburn for a few days afterwards - tender when it was touched, but not agony.
If you've been thinking about having one ... go for it!

I've always wanted a tattoo, but never really sure where or what.
I like the way it looks like its been painted on.

The Stones said...

you know having tattoos is like having a slice of the most scrumptious chocolate cake...? After that first bite you just want more and more and more.
My Husband has stopped me at two...he has forbidden anymore - that is how strongly he feels.....ha ha ha
It is lovely though!
