My very first tattoo was actually lyrics on my wrist which I got when I was 17. The script wasn't perfect so I began having laser tattoo removal to fade it so that I can have it touched up. At the moment it's one more session away from being touched up, which is why I didn't think I would include it in this post as its quite faded. The day before my 18th birthday I got Ariel from The Little Mermaid tattooed on my right foot. If you know me you know that I kind of have a disney obsession, and I absolutely love foot tattoos. The whole tattoo took 6 hours (the artist was quite slow) and it was excruciatingly painful, I burst out crying 3 hours In. Despite the pain I was back 6 months later for the other foot…
Princess Jasmine from Aladdin was my choice for my left foot. Although this time I decided to have it done in two sessions. It was just as painful, took about 2 and a half hours anddddd I still haven't been back to finish it! One day when Im willing to face the pain I'll have it completed, for now I think its beautiful regardless of not being coloured in.
It was a good year and a half before I got tattooed again, a few days after my 20th birthday I spent my birthday money on a beautiful deer on my shin. I love neotrad tattoos and this was the beginning of having my legs slowly covered. This wasn't as painful compared to my feet, but definitely got worse the longer it went on. It took two sessions and I'm probably due for a touch up soon.
And last but not least, a month ago while holidaying in Broadbeach I got this tiger on my ankle. This took about 4 hours and had lots of intricate lines to complete. Towards the end it was very painful, as the artist had to re work some lines. None of my tattoos have itched much while healing, except this one! This tattoo woke me up in the middle of the night twice it was that itchy, I just had to bare through it and pat it but to be quite honest it was torture.
