This is so crazy because I never expected this to happen in my life. I have needle phobia and have surprised myself over the years. At thirteen I had my lobes pierced twice on each ear, then at sixteen I randomly wanted a nose piercing one day and just went along with it very spontaneously, then by September 2015 at age eighteen I just had an urge to get my cartilage pierced (which I did right away) and get a tattoo (which I didn’t do until December 2015.)
I have a friend who is a tattoo artist so he very kindly offered to do my tattoo for free. It’s a bow with a heart, a small tattoo above my thumb on my hand. It’s super cute! It took a bit over thirty minutes to complete. It did hurt, it stung like needles repeatedly going into my skin . . . which it is. But it’s tolerable pain; I definitely want more tattoos in the future. I already have them planned out. LOL!
So if you’re worried about the pain, then don’t be. Just bring someone along to chat with and keep your mind occupied on something else, or, how great it will look when it’s done! But make sure you really want it; you have it for life! xoxo
I made a video all about my experience including choosing my tattoo, the placing, after-care, etc. Check it out below:
