Greetings! So at last, the day has come, I have got a tattoo! And if you follow me on social media then you know that I haven’t stopped talking about getting my tattoo for the last 24 hours, the worst is yet to come my friends.
So I got my tattoo today, as you may have gathered, and the first question I’ve been asked by friends is did it hurt? And my answer is fuck yes it hurt like a bitch, the outline did at least. The first part was bearable and then she moved onto the thicker lines and that was just beginning to cross the boundary of what was bearable and what wasn’t. Once the outline was done with, the rest was smooth sailing. I’ll insert a picture below, I’ll admit I wasn’t a huge fan of it when she showed me it on paper but I really do love how it turned out.
I also bought an aftercare balm from the tattoo shop, as it was £3 and I had heard good things about it. After the tattoo was done she cleaned it up, applied the balm and wrapped the tattoo in clingflim. Which I have since removed, cleaned my tattoo, applied the balm and then rewrapped the tattoo as instructed by my artist. She said that I could take it off tomorrow and leave it unwrapped from tomorrow onwards, which is nice because I don’t have to be at the charity shop with cling film on my arm….
Also, I’ll go back and correct this, but in a previous post I said that the total would be £55-£65 because of the booking fee but I was wrong because the booking fee was just deducted from the tattoo fee so I only paid £15 today which meant the total came to £35! Quite reasonable I’d say.
Honestly that’s all I’ve got for this post today, I’m thinking about doing an aftercare post to conclude this lil series so look out for that!
Also, side note, I mentioned this on Twitter but I’ll be moving over to my new blog on the 23rd of September (the autumnal equinox 😁) I’ll post the link closer to the time as I currently have it on private while I set it all up.
Until next time 🙂
