My New Tattoo: Session 17

This session took place this past Tuesday, the day before my 5K race. I thought of this as I drove to Dogstar: man, that's not going to feel good while I run tomorrow. Fortunately, it wasn't that bad or noticeable.

Tuesday's session was all about giving me scales...well, giving my dragon's tail scales.

These don't feel good. It feels like someone takes a small nail and 'scribbles' small circles into your skin...deep into your skin. And this goes on and on and on.

For the most part, no problem. Felt good, even. :-) But the bad parts, as few as they were, are on the verge of panic when Kat takes the needle off my skin to 'color' in another scale.

The amazing part of this is that Kat does this by freehand. The artistry comes out and she fills in the blanks with her take on what scales are supposed to look like. And it looks amazing.

You can see the new parts by the glossier looking area. This is the A&D ointment that protects the ink...
