the official tattoo post, with 14 pictures

Thanks to Carolyn (ladyofthenut) for snapping pics.

So far I am very happy with the tattoo and definitely like the artist, so I'll give him a plug. www.joshcruse.com.

When I got to the shop, I was nervous, but only a little. Mostly because this being my first tattoo, I didn't know what to expect. I knew it would hurt, but I was in a good mood anyhow.

He shaved that part of my leg and then applied the stencil. I actually had him redo it twice more to get the positioning to my liking. He was very cool about it and totally understanding and patient. "Hey, it's all good, you have to wear it, not me. Let's make sure we get it right."

I sat down, getting more nervous, stuck my leg out and took a deep breath.

Wow. Apparently I have no tolerance for pain. This hurt, a lot.
