This is me bursting with excitement in the waiting room.
This is me somewhat nervously getting tattooed. I've never been scared of needles or anything like that but it wasn't the most comfortable experience I've ever gone through. It was made slightly more surreal by the fact that the Hooray For Boobies album by the Bloodhound Gang was playing the whole time... yes, I got tattooed to the sweet sounds of "The Bad Touch".
And this is me afterwards in Planet Books looking pretty pleased with myself.
And finally, this is how it looked later that night. You can't really see how swollen it was, but it was a bit flaky, which freaked me out until I was assured that was normal. I'm STILL waiting for it to heal properly and now it's at the itchy stage, but I am so happy that I got it. It's the best (early) 22nd birthday present I could have given myself!
I just wanted to say thank you to Holdfast Tattoo for being so wonderful, and especially to my tattooist Jed who did such a fantastic job on my tattoo and made sure I was happy with it and comfortable every step of the (admittedly quite short) way! I would definitely recommend them, they're all extremely talented and I definitely can't wait to visit them again!
