These photos were taken only a couple of days after I got my tattoo so although it was still healing and this dress doesn't show it in it's entirety I still couldn't resist a little back view :)
The design is Nora Aoyagi's Fancy Wolf screen print and was tattooed by Vic of Tattooing by Fabio.
Here are some answer the questions I've been getting about my first tattoo in the real world:
It took about one and a half hours and having it done wasn't what I'd call comfortable but it wasn't exactly painful either. I'd give it between two and three out of ten with areas right on the bone smarting a little more than the rest. That said I know pain is a very subjective experience and frankly I am both on the numb and downplaying side. But whether you'd rate it quite as low as me or might think the uncomfortable factor of having a tattoo done a little higher - the scratch of it is definitely manageable and (IMO) well worth it.
Afterwards it felt like a mild sun burn, but considering all redness had subsided after only two hours I am assuming I hit the jackpot on that one.
To prevent what is essentially a great big graze from scabbing I've been moisturizing, moisturizing, moisturizing. And yes, if you watch Doctor Who: I invoked that image on purpose ;)
Yes, I'd do it again in a heartbeat and would certainly consider adding further permanent adornments.
I feel like a General wearing all these buttons like military regalia. More like Brownie badges you say? Dare you burst my high ranking bubble!
The weatherman has promised an Indian Summer with temperatures up to 28C/82F over the next few days (followed by a sharp cool down at the start of October, but let's not think about that part).
Yay for an unexpected encore to peep toe weather!
