My New Tattoo: Session 7

I am beginning to feel like Pavlov's dog...I am anticipating excruciatingly painful sessions...but not quite there yet.

In fact, today's session went fairly well and it was a good two hour needle-work session. I was expecting the worse, especially when Kat (her pet name in the shop) said "we'll work on the clouds and the rocks today". The clouds and the rocks are located in the tramp stamp vicinity, which is, for me, the most painful session I have had.

This was the area lined right before the Thanksgiving trip to the mountains and it was days of pain...weeks to heal. I was bracing myself for some painful work.

But thankfully, it was not that bad. There were some tender spots, but for the most part, it was about an "8" on the pain scale...the lowest I could ever rate a session would probably be a "7", so that's not too bad.

Today's background music was provided by the Rolling Stones. I am not NOT an RS fan, but you know, they get enough airtime so it's not my cup of tea. But today, I thoroughly enjoyed and welcomed RS, which sort of took me back to the session when Metallica played in the background.

Shiny Toy Guns also played, which was great because I didn't recognize who they were until the one song I know played. And I had thought "I need to ask Rachael who this band is". I have the album...well, someone gave me their copy, so I'll have to add that to my iPod.

ANYWAY, it was a good start to the New Year, not starting off with a whole lot of pain and being 'crippled' for a week. Everything that appears on my body is 'done'. Now, it's back to the drawing board to complete the work that hasn't been drawn out yet.

It looks awesome. Kat took some pictures and seeing them amazed me. That is what it looks like??? I felt like a star. I'll have to get Tim to take some pictures. I hope to do that this weekend so I can post them and, well, show off.
