Guess what I did last Saturday. Just guess.
HUZZAH! Foot tattoo!
I'd been wanting to get something on my foot for a while. About a month ago my tattoo artist friend posted a tattoo flash he drew up on Facebook that I loved -- a poppy. Sadly that got snatched up pretty damn quick but he offered to draw up something he felt would look good on my wee foot.
I'm not going to lie, I was scared the morning of the tattoo. Not for the pain, but in my mind I was worried about bleeding. Yeah, bleeding. I don't do well with blood, and seeing as there are so many veins that run along the top of the foot, I began dreaming up worst case scenarios. I'm awesome like that.
The pain was horrible. For me, it was a close second to child birth. I couldn't believe how bad it hurt, and that was just the line work. I kept clenching my fists and teeth, looking around the shoppe at something to distract me. Another dude who was getting his arm done regaled the tale of when his fiance was getting her foot done -- he could hear her screaming from the bottom of the stairs. I can believe it.
An hour and a half later I was up walking around with this beauty. I love what my artist did and how he coloured it. Initally I wanted green leaves, but I'm super happy with just shading. Looks damn purdy if you ask me.
I'll eventually get around to posting real photos. My foot is currently at that itchy flaky stage. Awesome, right? I'm guessing macro shots probably wouldn't be so cool right now. (Or maybe they would be? What the hell do I know?!)
Anyone else there had their foot tattooed? What was it like for you? Tell me!
