This is my first blog you guys! How exciting is this! ..
I got my first tattoo last year on my shoulder blade. I remember it hurting quite a bit and it took about two hours to do blah blah. I got pretty bored of it after a while because I thought it looked bland and boring.
I decided to add on to my tattoo. Not only was my tattoo artist extremely nice and “at peace(hippie-ish)” he did a great job with the new design. It was only $130 which was definitely worth it and so much cheaper than when I first got it done ($270. Ridiculous.).
The Pain:: 2 1/2 hours of what felt like a razor blade carving into me. It is right on top of my bone too which made it even worse. I am a warrior though 🙂 so no tears.
Afterwards:: It is always the biggest adrenaline rush once it is over with. I couldn’t stop laughing and giggling, I thought I was on drugs or something. Great feeling. Totally worth the pain.
Design:: A phoenix. It is a mythological bird that lives for about 500+ years or so and then it burns itself and its nest to ashes. It is then reborn anew and then the cycle continues on.
What it means to me:: The phoenix is my favorite mythological creature and means a lot to me. It represents a variety of things that are very personal to me, my favorite being ‘change’. I have been through a lot in life which has changed my beliefs, opinions, values, and just who I am as an individual. And the cycle will continue.
Err…can’t post a picture! >_< maybe one will show up in the forums some where (look out for it).
