Tattoo Tuesday : New Ink :


 Last Thursday I finally got my new tattoo.  I booked the appointment at least 2 months ago, but it was definitely worth the wait!
I arrived at the shop and my artist had already drawn up the teapot & teacup I wanted.  After a few minor adjustments and repositioning, the stencil was on & I was sooooo ready!

 

I'm not going to lie... it hurt.  I'm pretty tough, and I pride myself on having a pretty high pain tolerance, but there were a few moments I just wanted to cry and/or bend over and punch my tattoo artist in the face.  The teapot took 1 hour & 45 minutes to complete.  The teacup went quicker and after sitting in that chair for nearly 3 hours... they were done!

They're healing really well besides some major swelling the first night & day after... and, of course, the "itchy" phase they're at now.

Sausage Feet!

  4. Love it! I want to get a cute little dagger going through a teacup. Have you heard or has your Mister heard of Alex Strangler? She works out of LA, you would think her work is rad! REALLY FEMININE (almost a little too cartoony sometimes) but I think you would die!!!

  5. They look AMAZING! I'm debating getting a foot tattoo soon, but I'm nervous because my wrist one about did me in. I was on the verge of passing out (I'm a wimp!) and heard that foot was a lot worse. Eep.

  7. It's beautiful!

    I've heard the feet are a painful place to tattoo! I just got my very first tattoo on my arm (inner forearm just below the elbow) and it hurt more than I expected it to... My friend Courtney got her first on her bicep and said it hardly hurt at all, and Kristina got her second tattoo on her leg and said it was really painful compared to the one on her back.

    So interesting! But I seriously love the new tat!
