Good afternoon Little Ones! It’s that time of the day again where I sit in front of my computer, and write to my hearts content. In recent events, more specifically Thursday 1st February … I headed into my local tattoo parlour and proceeded to implant my first tattoo on my body. If you want to read about: why I got it, where I gathered the inspiration from, how I felt before and after, and what I think currently; have a scroll!

WHY THIS TATTOO:
Thursday 1st February, marked the day where I entered my local tattoo parlour and made this vision possible.
This tattoo portrays strength, and switches which was once a traumatic nightmare, into a lighthearted illustration, it’s utterly unique-one of a kind in fact, this will NEVER be replicated; which makes me feel utterly proud.
As tiny as this tattoo is, the meaning behind it engulfs size altogether.
FEELING BEFORE THE TATTOO:
Luckily enough for me, this wasn’t a sporadic idea, I had pondered upon this creation for over a year. A week before it was time to embed this illustration for a lifetime, I made an appointment with my tattoo artist, I wanted them to acknowledge the significance behind the tattoo; and ease my anxiety. They were extremely supportive, and thought it embarked pure emotion, relevance, and originality. I admired their opinion, and couldn’t wait until my creation came to life.
Moments before my tattoo, I was anxiety ridden, I was fearful of the pain, worried that I would flinch and ruin the entire design.
DID IT HURT?
In order to aid my anxiety, my tattoo artist slowly placed the gun onto the surface of my skin, she emulated gentle circular motions, in which I completed relaxed, simply because it didn’t hurt at all.
But, if you are considering a tattoo, my advice would be, to make an appointment, and discuss your fear, they are there to turn your wild creations to life; use them to your advantage.
When the day arrives for you to get your tattoo, and you are still fear-ridden, they won’t rush you into anything, and they can even apply numbing location.
Like I’ve mentioned previously, everyone is different, do want you think is best for you.
The secondary phrase, “once you get one tattoo, don’t they become increasingly addictive?” Yes they do, I’ve already thought about several other tattoos I wish to add to my small collection. One important factor will stay submerged, any future tattoo I consider getting, has to be designed by me, it adds a personal and original touch … Differentiates me from sheep.
Cheers to this, and hopefully many more to come, I will inform you on future designs, and maybe even film my next tattoo; if the opportunity ever arises.
